There is a huge amount of information about space that can help you build your scientific knowledge if you have a taste for astronomy. The information can be amazingly cool. What is more, space science is seen as exciting topics in itself. If you look to enriching your knowledge on facts about our space or are space science student then you will get some of the key facts on this article.
First, let us look at what something about snows that keep falling during fall on planet Mars. It has been indicated time and again that the snows forms on the upper parts of the atmosphere of the planet Mars. These snows will become vapor before landing on the surface.
Many space scientists suggest that the planet Mars is most likely to have contained large amounts of waters for a long time in the past. The proof of this fact is based on the large and scattered water bodies found on valleys and canyons in this particular planet.
Then there is the amazing Saturn’s ring. It is estimated that the ring’s circumference is 500,000 miles. But what is even shocking is the fact that it is about a foot thick.
One of the great features that you can’t miss in any space science class is the phenomenal orbiting of the moon on planet Earth. Earth’s moon was first investigated in 1968. The Apollo 8 Aircraft was the first space aircraft that left the Earth and started orbiting around the moon. 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 even surprising is the fact that the astronauts can’t even burp while in space. It is said that the 20 seconds worth of fuel remained before the Apollo 11’s Lunar Module landed on the moon.
Then there is the comet, an asteroid that periodically crosses the Earth’s atmosphere after years. Its trail seems to get attracted to the sun as it moves across space.
It is a known fact that the astronauts get taller while in space. 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. On average, the planet Saturn is 886 million miles away from the Sun.
It is said that the density of planet Saturn is less water’s, but this fact is misleading in a way. It is believed that the lightness of the Saturn’s gases makes that whole planet lightweight. You will find that the objects are heavier by 1.16 times on Saturn than on Earth.
