Some super rich people spend their money on private jets; others build lavish homes around the globe. But perhaps the ultimate show of wealth is the private island. Born rich has gathered a few islands owned by the wealthy; we've compiled a list of our own. They belong to businessmen, moguls and celebrities, and some are lived on year round, while others are rented out to guests. Incredibly, many of them - like the British Virgin Island owned by Richard Branson - were snapped up decades ago at relative steals.
Richard Branson bought Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands for $200,000 in the 1970s. It now rents for over $50,000 per night.

Max Knoll was the first person to create an SEM image of silicone steel in 1935; over the next 30 years, a number of scientists worked to further develop the instrument, and in 1965 the first SEM was delivered to DuPont by the Cambridge Instrument Company as the "Stereoscan."

Doctors from the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital and the Army Trauma Training Center revealed that it was a miracle that the spear missed all the main blood vessels in Yasser Lopez's brain. That alone may have saved the life of the teen from Southwest Miami-Dade.
