For a science lover, Science is always interesting and something that always amazes us through its amazing and weird facts. Here are 13 weird and interesting science facts:- 

1. At the same time, the water can boil and freeze. It is called the 'triple point' and occurs when temperature and pressure are just right for the three phases (gas, liquid, and solid) of a substance to coexist in thermodynamic equilibrium. 

2. After Albert Einstein died in 1955, Thomas Harvey, a pathologist at Princeton Hospital, conducted an autopsy in which he removed Albert Einstein's brain. Instead of placing the brain back in the body, Harvey wanted to research it. Harvey was not allowed to keep Einstein's brain.

3. The only letter that does not appear in the periodic table is J. Don't you believe us? Check that out for yourself.

4. Oxygen on Earth is created by the ocean. Have you ever tried to wonder where oxygen comes from? Your first impression might be a rainforest, but marine species are taking a reward. Plankton, seaweed, and other photosynthesizers produce more than half of the world's oxygen.

5. Ants are strong enough to carry objects 50 times their body weight. Relative to their scale, the muscles are thicker than larger animals or even humans. This ratio allows them to generate more energy and to hold larger items.

6. Humans can see just about 5 percent of the matter in the universe. The rest is made up of invisible matter (called dark matter).

7. Each human being has 99 percent of his or her DNA in common. Parent and child share 99.5 percent of the same DNA, and you have 98% of your DNA in common with the chimpanzee.

8. Six elements account for 99 percent of the mass of the human body: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, calcium, and phosphorus. The human body contains enough carbon for 9,000 pencils.

9. Without saliva, humans can't taste food. Chemoreceptors in the taste buds of your tongue require a liquid medium for the flavors to bind to the receptor molecules.

10. A laser could get stuck in the water. It is called total internal reflection when pointing a laser beam through a water container. As the light moves through the water, the heavier particles in the water slow down. Therefore, the laser beam is essentially stuck in the water.

11. A broken egg on the ground might make a huge mess, but 18 meters (60 feet) below the surface of the ocean, the pressure on the egg is 2.8 times atmospheric, and it keeps it together like an invisible eggshell.

12. Queen Alexandra's Birdwing is the largest butterfly in the world, with a wingspan of up to 12 inches. It is found only in Papua New Guinea and is considered to be endangered.

13. It's possible to die from drinking too much water. Water intoxication and hyponatremia result when a dehydrated person drinks too much water without accompanying electrolytes.
