3... 2... 1... We have lift-off on another fully revised and updated Guinness World Records annual! The 2023 edition takes readers on a journey that's out of this world, revealing the latest and greatest record-breaking achievements here on Earth and across the vast distances of ...space. Humanity's horizons are expanding once again, and our world is experiencing unprecedented change. Keeping up with this dizzying revolution are the Guinness World Records adjudicators, who've been busier than ever documenting the Officially Amazing. The result is Guinness World Records 2023! We start with a tour of our Solar System and beyond, exploring astronomical superlatives in a chapter dedicated to the latest developments in the New Space Race. Back down to Earth, we delve into the natural world to encounter the animal kingdom's mightiest and most bizarre beasts. Get up close and personal with the most iconic human beings - the tallest, shortest, strongest and hairiest - and be amazed at the extraordinary skills on display from the world's greatest jugglers, rock-climbers, freestylers and mermaids (yes, mermaids!). To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days, we dedicate a chapter to a whistlestop tour of our planet from the comfort of your armchair, pointing out recordworthy landmarks, tourist hot-spots and cultural phenomena. Our team of gaming consultants and editors have picked out the Top 25 Greatest Gaming Records of All Time - does your favourite game get a mention? We end with every significant new sporting achievement logged in the 30-page Sports section.
