Simon's Favourite Antarctica Facts

1. You can be more remote in Antarctica than on the International Space Station. The ISS is 400 km away but in Antarctica you can be 1000 km away from the nearest human.

2. It's a fantastic place to hunt for meteorites because they stand out against the white ice and can lie there undisturbed for years.

3. 70% of the worlds fresh water is here, it's just frozen solid.
If the ice melted, the sea level would rise by around 60 metres.


Simon's Favourite Brain Facts

1. There really are 86 Billion brain cells or neurons in your brain.

2. More than half of your neurons are in the Cerebellum, the part of your brain that looks after lots of muscle movement and balance.

3. It weighs about the same as 3 cans of baked beans (1.5kg), looks like oatmeal and feels like tofu.

4. You're so much smarter than a dinosaur. They only had the same brain structure as a chicken. (Mind you they had good eyesight, good hearing, big teeth and could run really fast, so yep, still scary!)
