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.

 

Fact-1

 

Flowers smell differently in space than they do on earth. Because fragrance is dependent on several environmental factors such as temperature, humidity.

Many comets have two tails: one dust, one gas. And they’re different colors!

 

physics fact

 

Fact-16

Saturn has wired moons. Lapetus is shaped like a walnut.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-17

The fastest rotating pulsar known, PSRJ1748-2446ad, spins faster than the blades in kitchen blender!

 

physics fact

 

Fact-18

From space, you can see a crescent earth. And it’s as beautiful as you expect it to be.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-19

Much like humans, when stars are babies they blow gas out of both ends.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-20

Most galaxies in the universe live in clusters.

The Coma Cluster has over 1000 galaxies!

physics fact

 

Fact-21

Saturn doesn’t have any ring: it has thousands.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-22

From Pluto, the Sun is fainter than it is from Earth, but still can be 450× brighter than the full Moon.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-23

All the iron in your blood and all the calcium in your bones were created in exploding stars.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-24

It took Apollo over 4 days to get from the earth to the Moon. Their radio transmission made it back in 1.3 seconds.

 

physics fact

 

 

Fact-25

Jupiter’s moon IO is more geologically active than earth. Volcanoes constantly erupt there!

 

physics fact

 

Fact-26

The earth is hit by more cosmic debris than the Moon is, but erosion destroys the evidence here.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-27

Some galaxies are cannibals. They eat other galaxies and grow huge.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-28

Not all telescopes are on the ground or in space. SOFIA is inside an airplane with a hole in the side!

 

physics fact

 

Fact-29

Not only in the universe expanding, the expansion is accelerating!

 

physics fact

 

Fact-30

The most distant object ever seen is a galaxy at an ego-crushing distance of 13.2 million light years.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-31

Jupiter’s moon Io was the first body other than earth seen to have active volcanism.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-32

Material at the center of the Sun is so compressed than it’s 150 times denser than water.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-33

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.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-34

Sunspots look small, but only because the Sun is huge. Many are far larger than the entire Earth!

 

physics fact

 

Fact-35

The first exoplanets discovered were found in 1992, circling the ultradense cinder of a supernova.


physics fact

 

Fact-36

More massive stars live shorter lives. The most massive may only live for a few million years.

 

physics fact

 

 

Fact-37

When Venus transits the sun, it will look like a tiny dot: the sun will appear to be 30× times wider than the planet.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-38

Venus, Temperature = 400c, Air pressure = 90× Earth, Rain = sulfuric acid. Nice palace .

Ha Ha….

physics fact

 

Fact-38

Martian winds can create dust devils, mini tornadoes towering hundreds of meter over the landscape.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-39

There’s and Asteroid, called 2010TK7, that share an orbit with Earth!

 

physics fact

 

Fact-40

Face east just after the sunset. That dark hand across the horizon? The Earth’s shadow on the sky.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-41

The star HD10180, which is 130 light years away, may have 9 planets: a record!

 

physics fact

 

Fact-42

There are 88 official constellation, the same number as keys on a piano. To know them all, you’d better.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-43

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.

 

physics fact

 

 

Fact-44

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.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-45

Most of the atoms in our bodies were created in stars through fusion.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-46

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.

 

physics fact

 

Fact-47

There may have been many other big bang perhaps trillions and trillion of them spread across eternity.

 

physics fact

 

 

Fact-48

After Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin returned to earth from the moon they were quarantined for 21 days until it was determined that they did not bring back some space plague.

It was later determined the moon was devoid of life.

 

physics fact
