The Most Fascinating Facts about Space
When looking at the sky or the space, you would never know what is up there apart from the earth and the life that it supports. Research shows that there are a lot of things that exist and even work in space that you never knew about. In this article, we will expound on some of the greatest things that you never knew about happen in space.
Looking at the stars from earth, you could have never known, leave alone guess that they spin to about sixty times each and every second hence exhibiting a very high speed. In other circumstances, the rate increases up to six hundred times per second after they are born or come to spark. It is through this high speed of rotations that makes the stars be referred to as the high mass evolutionary stars universally.
For sound to come from one place to another, there must be a medium for the waves to travel through. In space, since there is no medium, the space is utterly silent which makes the astronauts use radio waves to speak to each other when in space. Just so you know, you cannot even hear a pin falling when in space as it is entirely silent.
The stars in the whole of space cannot be rightly estimated as they are utterly uncountable. In the milky galaxy only, you find that there is a possibility of there being millions and millions of stars. If you want to calculate the number of stars in the universal space, you have to multiply the number of galaxies by the number of stars estimated for each, which gives you completely absurd figures as they are over a zillion and another.
Looking at the Apollo astronauts’ prints of the feet, you find that they can stay there for a hundred million years as there is no atmosphere. You probably have seen these footsteps on photos and images posted on the internet by those who went and came back from the moon. However, you need to understand that the footsteps will not last forever since there are micrometeorites that may bombard the moon causing erosions.
In conclusion to this, you find that it is possible for you to get more of these facts from the space virtual platforms, pages and sites at your free will. If you want to increase your knowledge on the things that go on in space, you can also get them from printed media such as books, magazines as well as other publications. The amount of information unknown to you about the space is largely immense.
