Science facts develop the interests of both youngsters and adults. The new discoveries make science an interesting subject for students. Here are some fascinating and unbelievable science facts that will be difficult for you to believe.
Babies have more bones than adults
Isn’t it shocking that even though babies are so small in size, they still consist of more bones than adults?

The freezing and boiling points of water can be the same
Have you heard of ‘Triple Point’? One of the most interesting scientific facts is that water can coexist in all three states, i.e., solid, liquid, and gaseous, at a specific pressure and temperature. The triple point is a thermodynamic equilibrium state with a pressure of 611.657 Pa and a temperature of 0.01 °C.
Two planets that rotate in a clockwise direction
On the list of amazing facts, this is one of the facts that confuses people the most. Uranus and Venus are 2 planets that rotate in a clockwise direction about their axis. The rest of the planets rotate in counter-clock directions.
