Things To Know About Space


There is a huge amount of information about space that can help you build your scientific knowledge if you have a taste for astronomy.  Space facts can be fascinating.  What is more, space studies is thought to be one of the most exhilarating topics in itself.  If you a space science student and look to building your knowledge on facts surrounding space, then you will gain a lot from this article.

Firstly, let us see facts about the snow that falls on planet Mars during fall.  It has been proven that snows are generated on the upper atmospheres of planet Mars.  These snows will vaporize before reaching the surface.

Many spaces scientists have always hypothesize that the planet Mars has, for a long time, contain large amounts of surface water.  This kind of hypothesis is based on the Cool Space Facts that there are extensive but scattered water bodies existing on the valleys and canyons of this particular planet.

Then there is the unique Saturn’s ring.  Its circumference is estimated to be 500,000 miles.  But what is even astounding is the fact at that it is about a foot thick.

One of the greats phenomena is moon that keeps orbiting around the Earth.  Earth’s moon was first investigated in 1968.  The Apollo 8 space aircraft was the first aircraft to be launched into the moon’s orbit.  Other space aircrafts were later launched, such as Britain’s Black Arrow.

Many studies have shown that the moon moves away from the Earth a rate of 2.5 cm every year.  Nonetheless, a lot of scientists come up with different rates.  Some space studies claim that the consistent rate is 34 cm each year, but the most credible one is the 2.5cm per year.

What is more interesting is the fact that the astronauts cannot burp in space.  In fact, it was discovered that 20 seconds worth of fuel remained on the Apollo 11’s Lunar Module tank before it landed on the moon.  For more facts and information about space, go to

Then there is the comet, an asteroid that keeps appearing in the Earth’s atmosphere after several years.  The comet’s tail is always drawn to the sun as it moves across the atmosphere.

It is also said that the astronauts recorded enhanced heights while at spaces.  And they will record the shortest height when in outer space.

In fact, the largest meteorite ever recorded in human history was discovered in Namibia, at a place called Hoba and weighed 60 tones.  Some of the largest space asteroids have their moons.

The Earth revolves around the sun at a rate of 66,700 miles per hour.  Typically, the planet Saturn is 886 million miles as away from the Sun.

On average, the density of planet Saturn in less than that of water, though this fact can be a bit misleading.  Saturn’s gaseous load is believed to be the reason behind this planet’s lightness.  An object weighing 100 pounds on Earth will weigh 116 on Saturn.
