### Re: Interesting Information.....

Hi;

II 110 and II 111 are correct. By oversight, I posted the known answers.

II 112. The Pan-American Highway is a network of roads measuring about how many kilometers or miles in total length?

II 113. The South China Sea is a marginal sea that is part of the Pacific Ocean, encompassing an area from the Karimata and Malacca Straits to the Strait of Taiwan of around how many square kilometers or square miles? (The area's importance largely results from one-third of the world's shipping sailing through its waters and that it is believed to hold huge oil and gas reserves beneath its seabed.)

Hi;

II 122. Hans Lippershey is known for the earliest written record of a refracting telescope, a patent he filed. Which year?

II 123. Benjamin Leroy Holt was an American inventor who patented and manufactured the first practical crawler-type tread tractor. The continuous-type track is used for heavy agricultural and engineering vehicles to spread the weight over a large area to prevent the vehicle from sinking into soft ground. He founded with his brothers the Holt Manufacturing Company. When was he born and when did he die?

II 128. Darmstadtium is a chemical element with symbol Ds and atomic number 110. It is an extremely radioactive synthetic element. The most stable known isotope, darmstadtium-281, has a half-life of approximately 10 seconds. Darmstadtium was first created by the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research near the city of Darmstadt, Germany, after which it was named. In which year?

II 129. Hassium is a chemical element with symbol Hs and atomic number 108, named after the German state of Hesse. It is a synthetic element (an element that can be created in a laboratory but is not found in nature) and radioactive; the most stable known isotope,

, has a half-life of approximately 30 seconds. More than 100 atoms of hassium have been synthesized to date. Hassium was officially discovered by a German research team led by Peter Armbruster and Gottfried Münzenberg at the Institute for Heavy Ion Research (Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung, GSI) in Darmstadt. In which year?
