Here is the list of the Physics Facts that will surprise you!
You will feel curious about the nature and space after read these facts.
Flowers smell differently in space than they do on earth. Because fragrance is dependent on several environmental factors such as temperature, humidity.
Venus (not Mercury) has the hottest surface temperature for a planet due to the Greenhouse Effect.
In 1895, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky was the first to propose the concept of SPace Elevatore.
On the surface of a Neutron Star, the gravity is so strong you’d weigh several billion tons.
Four planets in the solar system have rings: Jupiter, Saturn Uranus and Neptune.
Mars is red due to the presence of large amount of iron oxide: rust!
Over 500 people have flown into space – about 0.000007% of the world.
The common definition of where “space” starts – the Xarman line – is 100 km above Earth’s surface.
The first star in the universe is formed about 400 million years after the Big Bang.
The Earth is 3.7× the Moon’s diameter, 50× its volume, and 81× its mass.
Brown dwarfs are not brown but red.
The core of the sun is 15 million degrees centigrade – that’s 27 million degree F.
In 1st moment after the Big – Bang, only hydrogen, helium and a dab of lithium were made.Everything else came later.
Most Asteroids are shaped like potatoes.
Kieopatra is shaped like… a dog bone.
Many comets have two tails: one dust, one gas. And they’re different colors!
Saturn has wired moons. Lapetus is shaped like a walnut.
The fastest rotating pulsar known, PSRJ1748-2446ad, spins faster than the blades in kitchen blender!
From space, you can see a crescent earth. And it’s as beautiful as you expect it to be.
Much like humans, when stars are babies they blow gas out of both ends.
Most galaxies in the universe live in clusters.
The Coma Cluster has over 1000 galaxies!
Saturn doesn’t have any ring: it has thousands.
From Pluto, the Sun is fainter than it is from Earth, but still can be 450× brighter than the full Moon.
All the iron in your blood and all the calcium in your bones were created in exploding stars.
It took Apollo over 4 days to get from the earth to the Moon. Their radio transmission made it back in 1.3 seconds.
Jupiter’s moon IO is more geologically active than earth. Volcanoes constantly erupt there!
The earth is hit by more cosmic debris than the Moon is, but erosion destroys the evidence here.
Some galaxies are cannibals. They eat other galaxies and grow huge.
Not all telescopes are on the ground or in space. SOFIA is inside an airplane with a hole in the side!
Not only in the universe expanding, the expansion is accelerating!
The most distant object ever seen is a galaxy at an ego-crushing distance of 13.2 million light years.
Jupiter’s moon Io was the first body other than earth seen to have active volcanism.
Material at the center of the Sun is so compressed than it’s 150 times denser than water.
A supernova has to be less than about 75 light years away to hurt us.
No star that close can explode, so we’re OK.
Sunspots look small, but only because the Sun is huge. Many are far larger than the entire Earth!
The first exoplanets discovered were found in 1992, circling the ultradense cinder of a supernova.
More massive stars live shorter lives. The most massive may only live for a few million years.
When Venus transits the sun, it will look like a tiny dot: the sun will appear to be 30× times wider than the planet.
Venus, Temperature = 400c, Air pressure = 90× Earth, Rain = sulfuric acid. Nice palace .
Martian winds can create dust devils, mini tornadoes towering hundreds of meter over the landscape.
There’s and Asteroid, called 2010TK7, that share an orbit with Earth!
Face east just after the sunset. That dark hand across the horizon? The Earth’s shadow on the sky.
The star HD10180, which is 130 light years away, may have 9 planets: a record!
There are 88 official constellation, the same number as keys on a piano. To know them all, you’d better.
In space, boiling water produces one giant undulating bubble due to lack of convection and buoyancy that accompanies gravity.
However, on earth, it creates thousands of little bubbles.
The first earthling in space was Lalika, a dog that launched into space on the Soviet ship Sputnik 2 in 1957.
After a week in space, the air in the capsule ran out and she died.
After its orbit deteriorated, the craft left space and burned up, along with Lalika’s body, as it re-entered Earth’s atmosphere.
Most of the atoms in our bodies were created in stars through fusion.
Theorists believe that if you tune a television to any channel it doesn’t receive. About 1% of the static on it is an ancient remnant of The Big Bang.
There may have been many other big bang perhaps trillions and trillion of them spread across eternity.
It was later determined the moon was devoid of life.
The full cost of a spacesuit is about 11 million $. Almost 70% of this is for the control module and the backpack.

The first person to look into space with a telescope was Galileo, nearly 400 years ago.

Space is so dark because we can see light only when it hits an object and bounces off it.
Understanding the earliest of eras in the history of the universe is currently one of the greatest unsolved problem in physics.
