Stunning Facts About Cool Space Facts
This article includes some of the most cultural, historical and scientific facts about space that you probably didn’t know.
The first awesome fact about space is that it is completely silent. There are no gases in space which are responsible for emitting sound waves hence, sound can cannot be able to travel in mars. Also, in order for sound to travel, there needs to be molecules to vibrate, but in space, there is large empty spaces between the starts and planet hence there will be no molecules to vibrate.
Because of its sheer size, no one knows the number of stars that are found in space. The immeasurable numbers comes about when the universe trillion galaxies is multiplied by the milky way’s estimated to be almost 400 billion.
There is a possibility that there is life on Mars. Although no proof has found past or present life in mars, there are some evidence that shows the presence of liquid water which is host to microorganism. With the aim to determine whether life ever evolved on Mars, NASA conducted some research and found fossils of tiny living things recovered in a rock.
The universe has very tiny stars with only a radius of 10 km known as the Neutron stars and they are known to spin 600-712 times per second. Besides, after they are born from a core collapse star explosion, they are able to rotate up to 60 times per second. These stars have a radius of 10 km and they have a mass greater than that of the sun.
Space has thousands of other planets outside of the solar system. The planets which are outside the solar system are referred to as exo-planets and are in an orbit that is around a different star. It is mind-blowing that at least 1800 planets have been confirmed, however, most of them are not life-habitable.
Although the sun is considered an average size star, one million Earth’s would fit in it. The sun has a mass of 99.86% which is almost 330,000 times the mass of Earth. Therefore, one million Earths will be needed so that it can be the same size as the sun and it is therefore wise to understand the uranus facts.
Venus is the only planet that has a day longer than a year. 244.7 Earth days is the length of time that it will take Mars to rotate around the sun. On the other hand, it only takes 243 Earth days for it to rotate on its axis once and this is what you need to know about the neptune facts.
Due to the weightless environment in space, the skin of your feet is likely to peel of. This is because they wear the socks for a few days and the skin of the feet becomes soft and flakens off.
