We are Stardust - We are Human

As March the 21st is Human Rights Day, we thought we’d put the spotlight on all things human – starting with the human body. Read and be amazed!

The atoms that make up your human body today are the same atoms that formed during the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago.

Our brain's connected neurons look similar to the structure of the universe. In a way, our brains are modelled after the universe.

The human eye is so sensitive that if the Earth were flat, you could spot a candle flickering at night from up to 30 miles away.

Humans share 50% of their DNA with bananas.

In 30 minutes, the human body gives off enough heat to bring a gallon of water to the boil.

When you blush, the lining of your stomach blushes too.

With the 60,000 miles of blood vessels inside the average human body, you could circumnavigate Earth two and a half times.

Human bone is as strong as granite. A block of bone the size of a matchbox could support nine tonnes of weight.

If the human brain were a computer, it could perform 38 thousand-trillion operations per second. The world's most powerful supercomputer can manage only .002% of that.

You're a little richer than you might think. Inside all of us is around 0.2 milligrams of gold, most of which is in our blood.

It’s great having gold in your blood, but it’s not much use when you want to purchase things. So if you need a little bit of real cash, chat to us
