It is so because a Human genome contains 23 DNA molecule, each containing on an average cm sized 2.5 nucleotide pairs. When unfolded all pairs its sum of total length is 2 * 10(14 times power) and the distance from sun to pluto and back is 1.2 * 10(13 times power) i.e its is enough of 17 pluto trips. \

3. The Eiffel Tower is 15 cm taller in Summer

It is due to the heating effect which is called thermal expansion, when particles expand and take up large volume. However, when the temperature drops its contracts again. This effect occurs in all states of matter i.e solid, liquid and gas. Thus all the large structures are built with expansion joints which allows them to expand and contract withour causing any damage.
