When you look at the stars, what do you think of? That we might not be alone in the universe? About an incredibly large space? Where did it all come from? There are many questions about space. But humanity cannot yet provide answers to everything. We know that outer space is beautiful and incredibly vast, but we have no idea how big it is. Yet cosmologists, physicists and astrophysicists already know some things today that will stun you.

We have collected the most amazing and amazing facts about space for you, and learn about which you will look at the stars in a different way. You will be amazed by some of the facts and many of the cosmological wonders.

planet diamond

There is a planet in space made of diamonds. It is twice the size of the Earth. “Super-Earth”, also known as 55 Cancer e (Janssen), is probably covered in graphite and diamonds, but there is almost no water on this amazing planet.

glass rain

In 2013, the Hubble telescope discovered a blue planet very similar to Earth. It is true that there is a huge difference – the temperature on this planet is about 1000 degrees Celsius, and lateral rain pours at a speed of 6920 kilometers per hour. The most interesting thing is that it is a rain of glass.

Baby Earth

If the sun were the size of a typical front door, the earth would be the size of a dime. It seems to us that we live on a huge planet. But in fact, by cosmic standards, our Earth is small. The volume of the Sun is more than 1,000,000 times. That is, the Sun could accommodate more than a million of our planets.

Dumplings in space

One of Saturn’s moons is shaped like a dumpling because it engulfs some of Saturn’s rings. Look at Saturn’s small satellite in the shape of a UFO! This is Pan’s satellite. Pan’s equatorial crest looks like a dumpling, not because it really wants to look like ravioli, but because the Moon picks up some particles of Saturn’s rings as it orbits. Scientists first speculated that Pan had an unusual shape in 2007, but this was not confirmed at the time until it was discovered. photographed in March 2017.

Stars and grains of sand

There are far more stars in the universe than there are grains of sand on Earth. The universe does not end with our Milky Way galaxy. But how many stars are there in space? It is difficult to appreciate and understand. In fact, scientists do not know exactly how many stars there are in the universe. There is only an estimate. This number is approximately 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, or septillion stars. This is an incredible amount, especially compared to seven quintillion, five hundred quadrillion grains of sand on Earth (7,5×10eighteen grains of sand).

footprints on the moon

The traces of the moon landing will likely still be visible millions of years from now. There is no wind or water erosion on the Moon, so unless a meteorite falls there and erases the footprints left by the astronauts, they may remain there forever.
