I thought graphene is the hardest substance known to man.

About Chlroine trifluoride... Clark is reported as saying:

"It is, of course, extremely toxic, but that's the least of the problem. It is hypergolic with every known fuel, and so rapidly hypergolic that no ignition delay has ever been measured. It is also hypergolic with such things as cloth, wood, and test engineers, not to mention asbestos, sand, and water — with which it reacts explosively. It can be kept in some of the ordinary structural metals — steel, copper, aluminum, etc. — because of the formation of a thin film of insoluble metal fluoride which protects the bulk of the metal, just as the invisible coat of oxide on aluminum keeps it from burning up in the atmosphere. If, however, this coat is melted or scrubbed off, and has no chance to reform, the operator is confronted with the problem of coping with a metal-fluorine fire. For dealing with this situation, I have always recommended a good pair of running shoes."

Holy **** that stuff's scary. Nazis did investigate using it though, but it was too expensive and difficult to make, and so instead of making 50 tonnes a month they only made 50 tonnes in the entire span of WW2.

I normally don't care for fact comps, but I like the way this one was written. Nice and relaxed and joking at times.

The darkest substance known to man reminds me of Blackbeard from One Piece.

number 3 was the hardest matter on earth, it is now graphen i belive it is spelled, basically it is a single layer of coal atoms and it is so strong that if you put the weight of an elephant on a spot the size of the tip of a pen it would not break

number 4 isnt 100% true, what is happening is radioactive decay, where the plutonium splits off exited helium from the nucleus and turns the plutonium into actnium.
the glow comes from gamma radiation where the helium shoots out a beam of light and loosing its exitement.

4 trillion Celsius you say? Im pretty sure that number is fairly accurate in Farenheit and Kelvin too.

The number is accurate in kelvins but in fahrenheit, it is equal to about 7.2 trillion degrees.

I googled that ****.

There is something so much hotter out there than the gluon soup.
4 trillion C? Nope.

The text is really annoying. Its the font or size. Cant deal with it. Always like science though.

But most things are hotter than the interior of a freshly microwaved hot-pocket.
