Interesting Space Facts | Fact about Space
In space, no one can hear your scream. Or can they? Sometimes the universe serves up some pretty horrifying scenarios. Luckily we’re safe here on Earth. Right? [Fact about Space]
In this post, we’re going to explain how terrifying the universe and can be in 25 Scary but True Space Facts.
25. Galactic Cannibalism Straight out of Great Horror
It’s not like people just eat each other. There are many cases in the universe where a galaxy can collide with another one or multiple galaxies. Research has found that larger galaxies collide with smaller ones every eight to 9 billion years. Our universe is on track to collide with the Andromeda galaxy in about 4 billion years almost certainly destroying all life forms in our galaxy.
24. NO Sound in Space
In Space contrary to how many Hollywood films may have you believe there is no sound in space. Space is completely silent. The only exception would be if you were in the middle of a fairly thick gas pall. It’s so quiet. If you were able to flow through space unaffected by the radiation, extreme cold, and lack of oxygen the silence would drive you mad. [Fact about Space]
23. Rogue Planets
Sometimes planets like to go rogue and escape the gravity of their parent stars. This doesn’t sound too scary until you learn that these planets can be 12 times the size of Jupiter rocketing through space at 30 million, someone of these planets may collide with Earth. And it goes without saying, it’ll be enough disastrous.
22. Loose Skin Falls Off in Space
This fact may scare the germophobes of the world. It turns out after a month in orbit chunks of your feet start falling off calluses and dead skin and just start floating off your foot after a while. [Fact about Space]
21. The Biggest Planet in the Universe.
Jupiter is the biggest earth in our solar system but is suppressed by the size of the largest earth astronomers have set up in the macrocosm. The density planet is about 28.5 times the mass of Jupiter. It’s currently classified as a gas giant like our Jupiter but many astronomers suggest it should be classified as a brown dwarf star because of its massive size.
20. The Hottest and Brightest Supernova
A supernova occurs when a star dies and explodes, expelling an enormous amount of light, heat and radiation. The assassin, 15 LH is the hottest and most luminous supernova astronomers have ever found. At current measurement, the explosion reached about 100 billion Kelvin. Just for a comparison, The Earth’s temperature is near about 288 Kelvin. It also shown at a brightness of 570,000,000,000 solar luminosity about twice as bright as any other of the supernovas discovered so far. [Fact about Space]
19. Floating Space Corpses
In the early days of space travel many animals, including cats, dogs, and a chimpanzee were sent up to the great unknown. But some of these animals and some humans didn’t make it back joining the thousands of tons of space junk hurling around our planet. And if that’s not creepy enough without oxygen, bodies don’t decompose. So this means space is littered with floating, frozen corpses.
18 White Hole theoretically
It is possible for white holes to exist in space. They’re the opposite of black holes and that nothing can enter into a white hole from the outside. Everything, including light, can escape from them. There are theories that every galaxy has a super massive black hole at its center and every supermassive black hole spawns a white hole.
17. What happens when you fall down into a black hole system?
We’ve all heard of black holes, but what would happen if you were to fall into one? There are only theories as to what would happen. One proposition is that it may resolve your reality into two corridor. In one part, you’ll be spaghetti and killed immediately and in the other, you’re unharmed. This is because time doesn’t work the same near black holes as on Earth. Either way, I would definitely not try it if I were you.
[Fact about Space]
16 The Big Crunch
It is theorized that opposite to the Big Bang which started the Universe it may end with the Big Crunch. This idea makes us to know that the universe will start to shrink and collapse to its earliest state. The Big Rip proposition suggests the macrocosm will not stop expanding and at one point, everything will be torn piecemeal at an infinitesimal position. Sounds like fun.
15 The Dark Flow
1 minute you’re a galaxy chilling at the edges of the Universe. A phenomenon called the dark flow keeps pulling chunks of galaxies into unknown places, and we don’t know why and how. It’s very reassuring.
[Fact about Space]
14 Unexpected Meteors
In 2013, 400 people were injured after a meteorite exploded in Russia. Once it turns out, the meteors can just fall at any time and rain down on the Earth causing its massive destruction. And we might not know until it’s too late. Sometimes the sky really is falling.
13. The Moon Will Leave US Every Year
The Moon gets 4 CM farther away from the Earth. This does not sound like a big deal but it could have ruinous goods in the distant future entwining runs, water situations and potentially decelerating down the speed of Earth’s gyration. [Fact about Space]
12. Venus is Dangerous
While Mars is seen as somewhat inhabitable by humans one planet we definitely won’t be visiting soon is Venus. As it turns out, the surface temperature is around 500 degrees Celsius. Its atmospheric pressure is 90 times that of Earth, and it’s constantly raining down acid rain So I do not suppose it’ll be a popular vacation destination once we get the technology to go there.
11. The Death of our Solar System
We’ve looked at theories of how our universe will end. But what about our solar system? However, when the Sun’s hydrogen will be gone, it will totally expand into a red giant and fully consume our Solar system by destroying it completely.
10. Space Without a Space Suit
if you ventured out into space without a suit, you would last at most 15 seconds before losing consciousness from lack of oxygen. That’s if you’re lucky. If you don’t expel all the air from your lungs, you will die within seconds from the vacuum rupturing your lung. So if you find yourself floating through the vastness of space without a spacesuit, I wouldn’t hold my breath. [Fact about Space]
KELT-9B is the hottest planet we have found outside our solar system. Its surface temperature is about 4600 Kelvins, just shy of 5800 Kelvin.
The temperature of our sun. This planet gets its red hot summers from its close orbit to its parent star, KELT-9.
08. The Average Temperature of Space
United States some major Scientists have worked on that and found that the net temperature of space is essentially comes zero (0). To be precise, it is around -270 degrees Celsius or -454, deg that comes out to 2.73 Kelvin, with the absolute zero or the coldest physical temperature possible, being zero Kelvin.
07. The Night Sky Will Get Dark Forever
If you outside at night then you’ll find a sky with full of stars most of the time. According to various scientists, in a matter of a trillion years from now, the sky at night will go totally black forever. [Fact about Space]
06. Even If There are Aliens
We may never find them. With the trillions and trillions of stars in the universe, most of which contain planets, it’s almost impossible that there aren’t extra-terrestrials out there somewhere. Though we are yet to find them, or we might never find them. It’s just because of the galaxies are always moving away from one to another. That means without faster than light travel, our intergalactic exploration might not be possible.
05. Solar Superstorms
Rising loops of electrified gas reaching 100,000 km high could wipe out Earth’s communication satellites and disrupt aircraft technology. We are due for one soon too, as they occur once every one or 200 years, with the last one hitting Earth in 1859. Might want to get a Faraday cage for your cell phone just in case.
04. Survival Rate of Space
Out of 430 people who have gone to space and 18 have never made it home. That is a pretty bad survival rate, making space travel the most dangerous mode of transportation so far. However, the space travel is becoming much safer than it used to be. [Fact about Space]
03. The Dark Matter
We have only witnessed less than 5% of the matter the universe is made of, the other 95% being dark matter and dark energy that we cannot see or understand yet. So until we figure out what dark matter is all about, there is still so much to learn about the material make up of the universe.
02. Rogue Black Holes
In fact, astronomers just found such a Jupiter-sized black hole present in our galaxy. I wouldn’t worry, though. It’s only speeding through space at about 3 million per hour.
Well, we know that Quasars are some of the most powerful celestial objects. These celestial objects are found at the center of many active galaxies and are the most powerful, energetic, and luminous objects we know of.
One quasar emits more than a thousand times the energy of our Milky Way. [Fact about Space]
