Considering one mole of hydrogen weighing in at a little more than 1 gram already consists of 6.023*10^23 atoms, that number seems quite unlikely. It would have to be many, many more. :wink:

Yes but the human body isn't made of hydrogen, most of it is carbon, which is 14 times heavier than hydrogen.

Wrong.
-You can take photos of rabbits in Wyoming in june all you want. It isn't forbidden.
-LBJ's feet were of normal size
-Manhattan comes from the Lenape native American word for island of many hills.

- What kind of tree? A 4 meter tall palm tree, or a giant oak?
- They're not weightless (nothing is weightless, actually), but they're not in free fall either. They're just have the exact same acceleration as the shuttle, so in comparison to the shuttle they experience no visible gravity.
- They're not animals. They're colonies of small (a few millimeters) animals.

true that you are never really weightless, but you are in a free fall around earth.

and about the hydrogen in the body, the human body is about 70% (or whatever it is) water and water contains 2 hydrogen atoms (duh) so there is a lot.

"sharks have to swam forwards, if they stop, theyll die. "

We have an aquarium near us, and every time i've gone in at least one of the nurse sharks has been still. - and no it isn't dead.
