When it comes to learning more about the universe and what is out there in the dark, making a discovery really is a great achievement. Opting to learn and know more about the unknown really is something that is considered to be a great achievement, especially since we still have little understanding of what really is out there beyond what our telescopes and technology is capable of reaching at the moment.
So that you will get to learn more about space facts and whatnot, reading along should help and aid you with regards to knowing more about what most people don’t know yet.
Among the things that people may not know about is that our sun could actually fit a million Earths inside. That aside, the sun also is considered to be one of the stars that belong to the average-size stars.
For more than 50 years ago, scientists just think that the Earth is the only planet to have waters until the recent discovery on Mars. Mars actually has a strong evidence of intermittent water passages. The confirmation was signaled when NASA has confirmed and aced on a strong evidence that was just recently discovered.
Comets, on the other hand, actually are leftovers from when the solar system was born 4.5 billion years back and what you will find there most likely consists carbon dioxide, sand, as well as ice. The lack of solid surface on Jupiter, Neptune, Uranus, and Saturn is what makes it impossible for you to jump, unlike Mars and Moon.
Also, if people are given a ticket to travel from Earth to Pluto, it will take them about 800 years until they make their landing on the Pluto, which, leaves everyone dead even before they reach halfway. Yes, it is that far.
There also are garbage in space as well and these most likely are man-made garbage but instead of going somewhere, they are left to orbit the Earth. The fact that there were so many of these you could find now, which sums up to 500,000 pieces more in total, are just floating around the Earth. These things range greatly from rocket fragments, satellites, spanners, even, and other junk from the ISS or International Space Station.
Did you even know we have an asteroid that enters the Earth’s atmosphere each year, but the good thing is that these things actually burn up completely before they make any impact at all?
Up to date, the highest mountain we know that sits on an asteroid is tailored as Vesta. The fact that this is 22km in height means that it will need 3 Mount Everests to breakeven such height.
