10 Interesting Space Facts

This is my first upload, I spent a while making it and had fun/learnt a lot while researching facts. I hope you like it too.

The fastest spinning objects in the
Universe are neutron stars - these
can rotate 500 times in just I
second. They are so dense that a
tablespoon star would
weigh about ten billion tonnes.
Supernova explosions produce more
energy in their first ten seconds than
the Sun during the whole obits 10
billion year lifetime, and for a brief
period they create more energy than
the rest ofa galaxy put together.
Betelgeuse, a red supergiant 640 light-
years away is the closest supernova
candidate we have. Betelgeuse is so
gigantic that it literally is the diameter
of Saturn' s orbit around the Sun.
The closest galaxy to us is the
Andromeda Galaxy, which is
approximately 2. 5 million light years
from Earth. It is approaching the Milky
Way at about 300 km/ s, and may collide
with it in about 3 billion years.
The Milkyway is spinning at a rate of
225 kilometers per second. In
addition, the galaxy is travelling
through space at the rate
kilometers per second. This means
that we are traveling at a total speed of
530 kilometers (330 miles) per second.
It would take 6341. 958391 years to
count all the stars in the Milkyway
Galaxy at the rate of one star per
The Whirlpool Galaxy () was the very
first celestial object to be identified as
being spiral.
There is no limit to how small or how
large a black hole can be. The nearest
black hole is 1, 600 light years away.
That is about 16 quadrillion kilometers
from Earth.
The energy in the sunlight we see today
started out in the core ofthe Sun 30, 000
years ago - it spent most ofthis time
passing through the dense atoms that
make the sun and just 8 minutes to
reach us once it had left the Sun.
Every year the moon moves about 3. ccm
further away from the Earth due to tidal

1. quasars can spin MUCH faster than that.
2."tons" not "tonnes"
3. Betelgeuse is a hyper-nova candidate. The most powerful explosion in the universe.
4. solar systems and other sub-galactic bodies can move much slower, or faster than the rest of the galaxy. so it would be around 250-350 mph.
5. you need an exponent in there, bro.
6. yeah. black holes can only be 1/3 the size of the star that produced it. (maximum)
7. the moon does move farther away, but not because of the tides. it's gravitational momentum.

Worth the long read. Interesting as **** yo. I think this just proves that it's mathematically impossible that we're the only ones in the universe and that's just awesome. This makes me actually think what life is. Like, what's the point of it, how is any of it possible? Is this all that there is? I ******* love space.

If we knew exactly how long it would take to count all the stars in the galaxy at a rate of 1 per second, surely that would mean that we already know exactly how many stars are in our galaxy?

Which we don't....

Part of me hates seeing posts like this. All it does is remind me that I'm never going to get a chance to explore any of it or even leave the planet in my lifetime.

What's the sense of life? I mean seriously funnyjunkers, what's the sense of the existence if we are absolutly nothing compared to the universe? come day we will dissapear and the universe won't give a **** about that. When did it all start and when will it all end? I mean the universe, why does such thing exist? WHY? what are we doing here? I guess the meaning of life is to ignore how banal is your life and have a lot of sex and power(money).

Oh, and there is no god by the way either magic powers.
