GPS satellites are built to account for Einstein's theory of relativity --- otherwise they would accumulate miles of error every day!

A mountain range encircling Saturn's moon Iapetus extends up to 8 miles high!

Arpad Nick of Budapest, Hungary, dragged a 70-ton tram over 160 feet using only his teeth!

< TASK > Answer the questions.

(1) What would happen to GPS satelites without Einstein's theory of relativity?

(2) How high is the mountain range encircling Saturn's moon Iapetus?

(3) What did Arpad Nick do with his teeth?
