World's fastest movie shot by DESY's X-ray laser FLASH in Hamburg

World's fastest movie shot by DESY's X-ray laser FLASH in Hamburg

The world's fastest movie was shot by DESY's X-ray laser FLASH in Hamburg. In its 2012 edition, the famous Guinness Book of World Records lists an interval of a mere 50 femtoseconds between two frames for FLASH. A femtosecond is a quadrillionth of a second, meaning that the two images are separated by just 0.000 000 000 000 05 seconds – this is 800 billion times faster than a feature film.

On Thursday, Professor Stefan Eisebitt from Technische Universität Berlin and the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin will present the record slow motion at the DESY light sources users' meeting. As the film motif for the demonstration of the technique his group chose a micro model of the Brandenburg Gate, spanning only a few micrometres.

The specialised light sources at DESY offer scientists unique insights into the world of atoms and molecules and attracted more than 2500 guest users in 2011 alone. More than 600 participants registered for the three-day users' meeting organised jointly by DESY and the European XFEL.

"The novel X-ray lasers will offer high speed films of ultrafast molecular processes and chemical reactions for a better understanding of these processes," emphasises DESY's director of research Professor Edgar Weckert. At FLASH, Eisebitt and his team demonstrated the fastest imaging sequence so far. For this purpose, the scientists split the X-ray laser beam into two flashes and sent one of them via a detour of only 0.015 millimetres, making it arrive 50 femtoseconds later than the first one. Since no detector can be read out so fast, the scientists stored both images as superimposed holograms, allowing the subsequent reconstruction of the single images.

With these experiments, the scientists showed that this record slow motion is achievable. However, they did not only take the world's fastest but probably also the shortest film – with just two images. Thus, additional development work is necessary for the use of this method in practice.

Most pizzas made in one hour set world record by Domino’s Pizza branch in Australia

Most pizzas made in one hour set world record by Domino’s Pizza branch in Australia

The Domino’s Pizza store in Bundaberg, in Queensland Australia has succeeded smashing not one, but two world records after its pizza making marathon on Saturday January 21st.

The team at the Domino’s Pizza takeaway in Bundaberg shot into the Guinness Book of World Records by making 837 pizzas in just one hour on Saturday night, meaning the pizza makers turned out more than 13 pizzas every minute in order to clinch the new record.

The record breaking team of pizza makers also clinched another title, this time a new Domino’s Pizza record for the most pizzas made and sold in a week after the branch churned out a whopping 25,000 pizzas in just seven days.

The store manager of the Bundaberg branch of Domino’s Pizza, Deeana Gatti, said her team were absolutely thrilled to have set not one, but two world records. The manager of the Queensland franchise said 120 team members from across Australia and also as far afield as New Zealand came together at the store for the record breaking attempt.

While the Domino’s Pizza branch succeeded in scooping two world records over the last week, they did miss out on a third record for the “most pizzas made in 24 hours by a team” which they narrowly avoided winning. However, not ones to be defeated, Bundaberg’s Domino’s Pizza are planning to re-attempt this record later in the year.

Lokmat Aurangabad Stadium - Most people singing a national anthem enters Guinness world record

Lokmat Aurangabad Stadium - Most people singing a national anthem enters Guinness world record 2012.

On the eve of republic day, 15243 people sang the National Anthem together.

Over 15,000 people from Aurangabad gathered in a stadium today and sang the national anthem, creating a Guinness world record.
In a rousing display of patriotism and unity, the voices of thousands of Aurangabadkars, singing Jana Gana Mana in full-throated fervour, created history this morning. With a tally of 15243, they took India into the Guinness Book of World Records for ‘the most people singing a national anthem simultaneously’, erasing the previous record held by Pakistan for 5800 individuals.

Andrea Banfi, Head of Adjudicators, Guinness World Records Limited, who had flown in from London, handed over the certificate to Rajya Sabha MP and Chairman of Lokmat Media Limited, Vijay Babu Darda, who accepted it on behalf of each and every Aurangabadkar who had created the world record for India.

Other Guinness World Records Limited officials present on the occasion were Lucia Sinigagliesi, Adjudications Manager, and Nikhil Shukla, Adjudicator – India.

Commenting on the achievement, Rishi Darda, Editorial Director – Lokmat Media Ltd., said, “This is our gift, as a responsible media house deeply connected with Aurangabad, to not just Aurangabadkars, but every Indian. We are delighted that Aurangabadkars responded so splendidly to our world record attempt initiative to commemorate the completion of 100 years of Jana Gana Mana since it was first sung.” It will be recalled that Jana Gana Mana was first sung at the Calcutta Session of the Indian National Congress on 27 December 1911. It was declared the Indian National Anthem by the Constituent Assembly on 24 January 1950.

Lokmat Media had pulled out all stops to inform every Aurangabadkar of the world record attempt. Rishi Darda said, “I would like to thank our sponsors and media partners who ably supported us in the initiative.” While Radio Mirchi was the radio partner, MCN Hathway, IBN7, IBN Lokmat and CNN IBN were the TV partners, and Abhishek Advertisers was the outdoor media partner. The sponsors were WS Developers, while the Phadnis Group was the co-sponsor.

As early as 7 am, all roads leading to the District Sports Complex (Vibhagiya Kreeda Sankul) in Garkheda witnessed traffic jams, with students, working people, housewives and families making their way purposefully to take part in the historic world record attempt with the National Anthe on the eve of Republic Day. Armed with incomparable zeal and energy, they came from all walks of life and far-flung locations of Aurangabad.
