Spinal Tap, the male human heart, sodium, coins, Dr. Who, solar eclipses, sun spots, bassoons and NASA all have something in common. Can you guess?
OK, time’s up. Here’s the answer:
Spinal Tap: Their amps go to 11 (Amps IRL go to 10)
Male Human Heart: Weighs approx. 11 oz.
Sodium: No. 11 element on the periodic table
Coins: Group 11 in chemistry includes coinage — gold, silver and copper
Dr. Who: Currently on the 11th Doctor. There’s also the M-Theory which deals with the number of existing space-time dimensions aka Super String Theory. Which leads back to Dr. Who.
Solar Eclipse: 4 Solar and 2 Lunar eclipses in 2011 — Saros Series 11 (which documents eclipses lasted over 1,000 years
Sun Spots: Solar cycle is approx. 11 yrs
Bassoons: Has 11 thumb keys
NASA: Apollo 11 was the first spaceflight to land Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon
Isn’t it fascinating this universe we live in? There’s all sorts of things that have a connection that you wouldn’t put to together. There are so many other things that have commonality with the number 11. I would have been here all day listing them. Ciao, until tomorrow.
You are such a nerd, I love it!
I couldn’t keep it a secret any longer. 🙂
