Our wonderful Universe is a place where monstrous and unimaginable things are common. There are a lot of secrets and unimaginable space objects in the vast darkness of the Universe. So, what are the most amazing things ever found in space?
Our curiosity takes us deep inside the darkness of the universe to find answers to the fundamental questions.
But, whenever we look deep inside the universe to find answers, we come up with more questions than before.
What are the Most Amazing Things Ever Found in Space
Humans have found a lot of unimaginable and interesting things in the universe from monstrous black holes to the invisible dark matter. Let’s find out the most amazing things, that have ever found in the Universe.
Planet Made of Diamond
This planet is a fantasy world for every woman. For women, this is one of the most beautiful things in space.
In the future, if we find a way to bring pure diamonds from this planet then every woman could buy her dream ring at very cheap prices.
The name of this diamond planet is 55 Canci e. This planet is 40 light-years away from the earth in a constellation Cancer.
This planet has a diameter as twice as that of earth and it is 8 times more massive than earth.
One-third of this planet is made of carbon and according to scientists, this carbon is present in the form of the diamond as a result of the planet’s high pressure and temperature.
55 Canri e was first discovered in 2004. It is estimated that the worth of the planet 55 Canri e is about $ 26 nonillion!!
Let’s see more interesting facts about universe.
Tallest Mountain of Solar System is on the Planet Mars
Everyone knows about the Mount Everest, the tallest mountain on planet earth. But, do you know where is the tallest mountain of the solar system?
The tallest mountain in the solar system is Olympus Mons which is on the planet Mars.
Olympus Mons is also the largest Volcano in our solar system. The height of the Olympus mons is 14 miles or 22 km. It is three times taller than Everest
It was first recognized in 1971 by Mariner 9. It is relatively young and may still be active.
Nebula: The Birthplace of the Stars
Nebulae are the enormous clouds of dust and gas in the interstellar space. They usually contain hydrogen and helium gases.
The nebula is also called as birthplace of the stars as thousands of stars can form inside Nebula. They are one of the most powerful things in space.
Stars form when gases in nebula start to collapse at one point due to gravity and eventually produces a very hot core which is the birth of a new star.
We have discovered a lot of nebulae in interstellar space with the help of telescopes like Hubble and Spitzer.
These nebulae are present in the interstellar space. Interstellar space is the space that exists between the galaxies and stars.
Giant space clouds filled with alcohol in interstellar space
Yes, it is true. There is a giant cloud filled with alcohol in space. Sagittarius B2 is the name of the cloud filled with alcohol.
This cloud has enough alcohol which can fill 400 trillion trillion pints of beer.
Unfortunately, it is far away from the earth. This cloud exists 6500 light-years away from Earth in the constellation of Aquilla.
This cloud is millions of times more massive than our sun. Sagittarius B2 was discovered in November 2016 with the help of the Tianma Telescope and observation station. This giant cloud is one of the best cool things in space, that humans have ever discovered.
Lakes of liquid methane on Titan
Titan is the largest moon of Saturn. It is a very special moon in our solar system as there is liquid methane on its surface.
There are lakes, rivers, seas, and underground oceans filled with liquid methane on titan. These lakes are about 100 m deep.
They are formed when methane rain on the solid surface of the titan.
Liquid methane has created lakes, rivers, and seas, on the surface of the titan. Interestingly, the weather on Titan is similar to that of earth.
Apart from the earth, titan is the only place in our solar system that has structures like mountains and valleys on its surface.
Largest Galaxy in the universe
IC1101 is the largest galaxy ever found by mankind in the observable universe.
It is 1.04 billion light-years away from earth in the Abell 2029 galaxy cluster.
The diameter of this galaxy is about 6 million light-years and its mass is nearly equal to 1oo trillion stars.
In comparison to IC1101, our milky way has a diameter of about 1 lakh light-years.
IC1101 is the largest galaxy in the observable universe, but still, there are very few regions in this galaxy where new stars are being born.
We are made from star particles
We, humans, are made from a number of different elements like iron, carbon, oxygen, phosphorous, and nitrogen.
All elements except hydrogen are formed in the core of stars.
When two Hydrogen atoms fuse together, they produce the elements with higher atomic numbers like hydrogen, oxygen, iron, etc.
But, this fusion process needs high pressure and temperature which exist only in the core of stars.
The universe is 13.7 billion years old
The age of the universe is considered as 13.7 billion years.
Astronomers studied the oldest stars and the rate of expansion of the universe to calculate the age of the universe.
But, many astronomers don’t believe in these calculations as we still don’t have enough information about the development of stars and expansion of the universe.
That’s why Astronomers are eagerly waiting for a next-generation space telescope that is also famous by the name James Webb space telescope. It is considered as a successor to Hubble space telescope.
James Webb Space Telescope would have the ability to see the early universe as it is highly infrared sensitive.
It will reveal a lot of secrets regarding the development of stars and the early universe which will enable us to do more precise calculations to estimate the age of the universe.
Weird and Horrible Planet of our solar system
There is no doubt that venus is the most horrible and weird planet for life in our solar system.
Many people think that Mercury is the hottest planet in our solar system but in reality, Venus is the hottest planet in our solar system. The average temperature of Venus is 465 degrees Celsius.
The deadly atmosphere of Venus consists of carbon dioxide and clouds of sulphuric acid with lots of other poisonous gases.
The thick layer of clouds over Venus creates immense pressure over Venus. The atmospheric pressure on Venus is 90 times higher than that of the earth’s pressure.
These clouds mostly consist of sulphuric acid droplets and they reflect most of the incoming sunlight.
Venus takes 243 earth days to rotate around its own axis, but, it completes one revolution around the sun in only 225 earth days. So, the Venusian day is longer than a Venusian year.
Mercury and Venus are the only two planets in our solar system that don’t have any natural satellites.
These are some of the amazing facts of the universe. But, the universe is full of miracles and there are a lot of undiscovered things in space that humans don’t know yet.
