2. Saturn is not the only planet with rings, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and the Earth have them too.
4. The Earth's rings are made of cosmic waste.
5. Nitrogen is a part of the composition of the stars, and of our dna.
6. Most of the stars we admire at night are actually dead.
7.The space probe Voyager 1 was send into space in 1977 with a special message for our neighbors of outer space. It was a disc that features pictures, sounds of the earth such as whale, a baby crying and greetings in 55 languages.
8. Venus is the brightest planet of our system, she is often mixed up with a star.
9. It's pretty easy to observe some planets such as mars, venus, jupiter, Saturn at night. It only require a clear night some patience + an app such as skywiew (free on appstore !) can be useful too.
10. If we were on the center of a black hole time would speed up so fast we would live the end of the universe.
11. Shooting stars don't exists, they are actually meteors showers.
12. Jupiter has 67 moons, Saturn 62, Uranus 27, Neptune 14, Mars 2 and the Earth 1.
13. Kepler 22 is an exoplanet also called super-earth that could (potentially) be habitable
14. It rains diamonds on Jupiter + Uranus
15. The moon moves 4cm further each year.
16. There used to be water on Mars, because her and the Earth had a similar beginning.
17. There's trace of organic life on Titan (one of saturn's moon).
18. Voyager 1 (launched in 1977) is closed to leave our solar system.
19. There's a vast ocean underneath the ice of Europa (one of Jupiter's moon).
20. Pluto was discovered in 1930 by Clyde Tombaugh, in 2015 the probe new horizon approached pluto with the ashes of Tombaugh inside.
21. Pluto is smaller than the earth's moon.
22. Saturn could float into water.
23. Our cosmic adress is :
planet earth, the earth-moon system, the solar system, the milky way galaxy, the local group, the virgo supercluster.
-Sol is a very tall. He has lightly wavy blond hair with few stray strands grouped in the middle. He also has droopy golden eyes. He wears light yellow aviator suit.
-He is very expressive and affectionate, he loves to spread his ‘warmth’ to others. He has no sense of personal space when it comes to those he likes, making them a bit awkward and uncomfortable, but he means well. He treats his planets like his younger brothers and sisters, this also extends to other celestial bodies. He gets mad occasionally, in a very dramatic and laughable way.
- Sol treats all of them affectionately and will try to spread his 'warmth’ even to the furthest living celestial bodies. He likes them to call him 'big brother’. To those living near to him, he can get uncomfortably close. To those living much further, they may want him to be 'closer’ (e.g. Pluto). He is good buddies with Kepler-22 and Gliese 581, who have potential habitable planets of their own. He is very respectful to his 'mother’ Milky Way, who in turn calls him a good child’.
-He seldom gets very mad, but when he does, it’s not a pretty sight. He is also feared by sun-grazing comets.
-His outbursts can disrupt cellphones.
-He feels intimidated around bigger sized stars.
-He has bad hair days and numerous sunspots every solar max. He stays at home every time this happens.
-He cannot cook. Like Venus’ case, it ends up very burnt.
-He knows he will eventually end Mercury and Venus’(and possibly Earth’s) life when he reaches his red giant stage. It is a nightmare he cannot escape. That’s why he is very affectionate to them until that fated day happens.
-He is s bit of a difficult kid in his youth. He grew up more mellow though.
-Sun is sometimes seen comically crying in the comic(sometimes seriously), it’s not water…Sun cries plasma tears
Big sister Sol is a very tall and pretty woman. She has long wavy blond hair which reaches her knees and she wears glasses. She tries her best to be a good big sister and offers advice from time to time. She can be a bit of a pervert sometimes, more so than her male counterpart. She is as understanding and wise despite being quite goofy as him. She is quite fond of male Venus, calling him her 'pretty boy’.
For those of you who have been interested in the headlines in the last few days about the discovery of an “Earthlike” planet, here’s a video from NASA explaining the importance of the find. As Natalie Batalha, Kepler Deputy Science Lead explains, we are now aware of ten Earth sized planets within habitable zones that could potentially be rocky. While of course we don’t yet have the technological capacity to transmit a signal 600 light years away, let alone travel that far, it is interesting to think about both in terms of human exploration and the possibility of other life in the Universe.
What if the only other habitable planet in the universe were potentially visible by our satellites/telescopes but as luck would have it… had an orbit around its sun that made it impossible for us to know it was there because every time Earth was in place to see this solar system… the twin planet would be behind its sun?
Scientists have confirmed the existence of an Earth-like planet orbiting a star similar to the sun 600 light years away. Kepler-22b is the planet most akin to our own ever discovered and has a radius that is roughly 2.4 times that of Earth.
