Fun With Science



Did you know that if you removed all of the space between the atoms and molecules that make up the Empire State Building, the building would be reduced to the size of a grain of rice.

Wowza!

To think that all those hundreds of times I went up that building, if it hadn't been for all that interatomic/ intermolecular space, I could've eaten the whole thing in one fell swoop.

Cube - This is definitely a scientific fact - only you could appreciate it!

Munir: Glad to help.

Sue Hanes: Not just me. This scientific fact is something everyone should know. Everything we think of as a solid object, is mostly empty interatomic/ intermolecular space.
