7 Incredible Science Facts You Probably Didn’t Learn at High School


We all have learnt some amazing science facts in high school like Einstein’s theory of relativity, DNA replication and the Periodic table. The knowledge we all pick up from there sets the foundations for the things we go on to study. But the real fact is science doesn’t end at high school, once you take your learning to the next level things get interesting.

In no order, here are some mind-blogging incredible facts about science that we didn’t learn at school, but we all wished we did. Because I certainly would have paid a lot more attention if my teacher had shared a few of these incredible facts in class. Let’s have a look at the amazing science facts with www.everydayscience.life

Water can boil and freeze at the same time

Seriously no joking, the process is called the ‘triple point’, and it usually occurs when the temperature and pressure is just perfect for the 3 phases (gas, solid and liquid) of a substance to co-exist in thermodynamic equilibrium.

Lasers can be trapped in a waterfall

This is an amazing example of total internal reflection, it also shows how fiber optic cables work to guide the flow of light. You guys can search the video of the following experiment online.

An egg looks like a jellyfish underwater

A cracked egg at home might make a big mess, but 60 feet below the surface in the sea, the atmospheric pressure on the egg is 2.8 times, and therefore it looks like an invisible egg shell.

Yes, you can see without your glasses

You heard it right, all you need to do is make a pinhole with your hand, which will eventually help you focus the light coming into your retina. It won’t give you 20/20 vision, but it’s a good approach if you’ve left your glasses at home by mistake.

How your face forms in the Mother’s womb

Embryonic development is a complex process that some scientists are still couldn’t understand. But one thing researchers have been able to figure out is how the embryo folds and creates the structure of the human face in the Mother’s womb. Check out the video online.

Popping your knuckles isn’t bad for you

One of the researchers who claimed to popped his knuckles of only one hand for almost 60 years but not the other one, found no recognizable difference in the amount of arthritis between the two hands at the end of their experiment.

If you spin a ball when dropping it from height it flies

Yes, it really flies. Thanks to the Magnus effect, which usually occurs when the air on the front side of a spinning object is going to the same direction as its spin. Meanwhile,the air flow separates as the air on the other side of the ball is moving in the opposite direction.

We at www.everydayscience.life could keep going on with the incredible facts but the best part about science is that it discovers new things every day. So never stop learning!
