Thought for the day

Each cell in the human body contains a strand of DNA that contains about three billion pairs of molecules organized into forty six chromosomes. Each molecule is around 0.000000002 meters in length. All this is bundled up in a twisted corkscrew of two strands entwining each other. If you could stretch out those two strands they would reach about two meters in length.

When you consider that there are about 10000000000000 cells in the human body, the length of these end to end would be about the same as the distance between the Earth and the sun, SEVENTY TIMES.

That’s a lot of information, and frankly an unimaginable distance.

There are some people who I could imagine testing this theory on experimentally…..
