Suresh Joachim set Guinness world record by dancing 110 hours straight

A Brampton, Ont., man thinks he can dance -- for 110 hours straight to secure a world record.

Suresh Joachim hopes to set the record by New Year's Eve. Under the rules, he is allowed to take five minutes off each hour.

The current world record holder managed to dance for 108 hours. In that length of time, you could listen to the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive" more than 1,620 times.

Joachim has already succeeded in breaking 63 Guinness World Records, but he wants to beat 500 in total.

So far, his world records range from having the largest wedding party (79 bridesmaids and 47 groomsman), the fastest one-mile crawl, standing on one foot for three days, running for 42 straight days, and watching television for 69 straight hours.

Why would a man do such things?

The father of two says it's simple. "I like to be number one in the world," he told CTV News.

Joachim is also aiming to raise money for children's charities.

"My aim is to help children around the world who suffer from poverty and war," he said.

On his website, he says he wants to raise $1 billion.

His wife understands that some might see her husband as eccentric.

"Some people admire him, and some people don't understand," said Christa Joachim. "They think he's crazy."

Solar powered Zephyr - Longest flight ever by an airplane set World Record

QinetiQ Ltd. (London, U.K.), developer of the solar-powered unmanned aircraft Zephyr, reported on Dec. 23 that the aircraft has now officially been awarded three World Records – including one for the longest flight ever by an airplane (two weeks) and one for altitude higher than any current surveillance aeroplane in its class. These records were achieved on the first flight of the all-new Zephyr aircraft in July 2010.

QinetiQ believes that Zephyr’s ability to fly higher and longer than any other current aircraft offers benefits to a number of potential customers in the military, academic, commercial and scientific arenas.

Flying 13 miles above the ground, Zephyr can watch over a diameter of 600 miles, and has demonstrated this by sending continuous, high-resolution live images back to Earth. This has an advantage over the intermittent, distant and expensive “snapshot per orbit” from satellites flying 100 miles above the earth. Zephyr has also demonstrated its ability to relay essential military and civil communications in remote areas between simple hand-held radios.
Its persistent flight capability, soon to be months, also means that where other aircraft must eventually land, Zephyr can stay in the air for longer, providing an unrestricted view from high altitude.

Aside from having flight capabilities far beyond other aircraft and satellites, Zephyr also offers significant cost savings. It is just one tenth of the cost of other unmanned aerial vehicles and one hundredth of the cost of a satellite.

Commenting on Zephyr’s potential, Chris Kelleher, QinetiQ’s chief designer, said, “Zephyr is a record-breaking piece of aviation design and engineering. It has unique flight capabilities, far beyond any other aircraft and satellites, which could be used in a huge range of scenarios with the lightweight but highly effective payloads we are developing."

Three records have been ratified for the Zephyr:

    * Absolute duration record, unmanned - Longest flying UAV in the world at 336 hours 22 minutes 8 seconds
    * Class Record UAV (50-500kg) – Altitude: At a height of 21,562m.
    * Class Record UAV (50-500kg) – Duration: As above.
