To know more the interesting facts about our solar system and the expanding universe really is an exciting feat. 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.
See to it that you will want to read along in order for you to actually learn more about the things that not everyone is aware about 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.
Over the years, people and scientists just thought of Earth to be the only planet in the solar system that is gifted enough to have waters until just recently. Little did scientists know, that there also is water on Mars that runs intermittently. The confirmation was signaled when NASA has confirmed and aced on a strong evidence that was just recently discovered.
Not everyone knows what a comet is composed of as well but back when the solar system was born 4.5 billion years ago, these still have the very components they had back then, which include ice, carbon dioxide, and sand. Also, if you could jump on the surface of Moon and Mars, doing so on Uranus, Neptune, Saturn, as well as Jupiter will be impossible because of the fact that these planets basically have no solid surface.
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. That alone should give you a perspective on how far Pluto really is.
If you are going to think where garbage go in space, they basically don’t go anywhere but just revolve around the Earth. These garbage actually are estimated to reach about 500,000 pieces already, all of these are just orbiting the Earth. These possible garbage range from a number of pieces, from spanners, satellites, rocket fragment and more, all of which are from the ISS or the International Space Station.
Another thing that not everyone is aware of is that asteroids actually enter the year each year but fortunately, these things just burn up before they are to make an impact.
The name of the highest mountain known that sits on an asteroid is named Vesta. This is so high that it will take about 3 Mount Everests to reach its 22k height.
