It is very difficult for a man to know all the complexities of this vast universe. But still, a man constantly tries to know all the complexities of the universe. In this way, we get to know the universe even better with bizarre and inspiring information. What we know in today’s modern world, we get to know because of the major space agency. So let us know 20 such fascinating and inspiring facts about the universe that presents the universe’s complexity and vastness.

1We are all made up of Stardust

The first fact in 20 fascinating and inspiring facts – it may seem imaginary that we are all made up of stardust particles, but the reality is that almost every object found on Earth is made up of the core of the universe’s rough stars matters. All the things that make life on earth are first made from a star, so it would not be wrong to say that our body is made of stardust.

Canister – Stardust

NASA has studied Stardust extensively, and you can read more about their research on their official website.

We’re All Made of Stardust. Here’s How.

13.8 billion years ago, the universe began with a big bang and the atoms it created would find their way into everything: from celestial stars to the human body.

NASA’s Canister – Stardust is pictured in the link. In the words of Carl Sagan, “The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies, were made inside of stars. We are made of Starstuff.”

2You can look back in time

Do you know, when you look in the sky, you are looking back in time. The second fact in 20 fascinating and inspiring facts – The stars we see in the night sky is far away from us, the light we see takes thousands of years to reach our eyes after traveling in space. This means that whenever we go out at night and look at the stars, we are looking at their past. For example, the bright star Vega is 25 light-years away from us, so we who saw Prakash(light) got out of that star 25 years ago. Similarly, we also can see the past of other stars too.

3It takes 225 million years for our Sun to revolve around the Milky Way

The third fact in 20 fascinating and inspiring facts is that while the Earth and the other planets within the solar system revolve around our Sun, and the Sun itself is orbiting around the center of our Milky Way, the Milky Way galaxy, means our whole solar system revolves around the Milkey Way. So It takes 225 million years for the Sun to orbit the Milky Way. The last time the Sun was in its current position in the Milky Way the super-continent Pangea had just begun to separate and early dinosaurs were making an appearance.

4Billions of years in the past

20 fascinating and inspiring fact 4 – Hubble telescope allows us to see billions of years in the past. – Hubble telescope enables us to see very distant objects in the universe. This remarkable telescope of engineering has been able to create some incredible images of space, one of which is the Hubble Ultra Deep Field, created using images taken by the Hubble telescope in 2003 and 2004, the Hubble telescope is an incredible image of a small sky Displays the patch in detail; It consists of 10,000 objects, most of which are young galaxies, in one picture we can see 13 billion years of the universe in the past, exactly 400 to 800 million years after the Big Bang, which is the earliest in terms of the history of the universe.

5You can watch Big Bang on your television

Did You Know You Can Watch The Big Bang On Your Television? 20 fascinating and inspiring fact No.5 – Cosmic background radiation is the shock and heat of the Big Bang, which originated from an important event that kick-started our universe 13.7 billion years ago. This cosmic echo still exists throughout the universe, and surprisingly we can use old-fashioned television sets to get a glimpse of it. When the television is not tuned to a station, you can see black and white fuzz and clacking white noise, about 1% of this interference is made up of Cosmic background radiation creations.

6Sagittarius B consists of a huge cloud of wine

20 fascinating and inspiring fact 6 – Sagittarius B is a huge molecular cloud of gas and dust, near the center of the Milky Way, located 26,000 light-years from Earth. Which is 463,000,000,000 kilometers in diameter and surprisingly, it contains 10 billion liters of alcohol? Vinyl alcohol is the most delicious beverage in the universe in the cloud, but it is an important organic molecule, providing some clues about how the first building blocks of life-producing substances were formed.

7Centaurus has a planet-shaped diamond

20 fascinating and inspiring fact 7 – Astronomers have discovered the largest known diamond in our galaxy, a giant lump of a crystallized diamond called BPM 37093, and like Lucy, after The Beatles song, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds Is known to have been found 50 light-years away in the constellation of Centaurus. Lucy is about 25,000 miles, much larger than the Earth, it can weigh up to 10 billion trillion-trillion carats.

8The largest mountain in our solar system is on Mars

20 fascinating and inspiring fact 8 – Olympus Mons on Mars is the highest mountain on any planet in the Solar System. This mountain is a volcanic volcano (similar to the volcanoes found in the Highwind Islands) that is 26 kilometers long and spans 600 kilometers. This mountain is about three times the height of Mount Everest.

9Uranus turns around, with some strange results

20 fascinating and inspiring fact 9 – Most of the planets in the solar system rotate on the same axis as the Sun, causing a slight tilt in the axis of a planet because different parts are slightly closer to or ahead of the sun during their orbit. Uranus is in many ways an extraordinary planet because it rotates almost completely with the Sun. This results in very long seasons. Each pole receives about 42 (earth years) continuous sunlight, followed by darkness for 42 years. In the northern hemisphere of Uranus, the sun rose in 1944 and will see the next winter in 2028, the solstice.

10A year on Venus is less than its day

20 fascinating and inspiring fact 10 – Venus is the slowest revolving planet in our solar system, so it takes longer to fully rotate than complete its orbit. This means that Venus has days that last longer than her years. It is the most inaccessible environment with frequent electronic storms, high CO2 readings, and surrounded by sulfuric acid clouds.

11Fastest moving objects in the universe

Neutron stars are the fastest moving objects known in the universe 20 fascinating and inspiring fact 11 – Neutron stars are considered to be the fastest moving objects in the universe. Pulsars are a special type of neutron star that emits a beam of radiation that can be seen in bright light like a star. Astronomers have to measure the pulse of its light to measure its rotation. The fastest known pulsar is the “PSR J1748-2446ad”, with an equatorial spin at 24% light speed, which translates to over 70,000 kilometers per second.

12One teaspoon of neutron star weighs about one billion tons

20 fascinating and inspiring facts 12 – Neutron stars move incredibly quickly and are also incredibly dense. It is estimated, if you can collect a tablespoon of matter from the center of a neutron star, it will weigh about one billion tons.

13Voyager 1 spacecraft is the farthest man-made object from Earth

20 fascinating and inspiring fact 13 – In 1977, two spacecraft Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 were launched into space. The probe discovered planets and moons of the outer solar system over several decades and is now continuing its mission, traveling through the heliosphere at the edge of our solar system and traveling into interstellar space. On 20 March 2013, Voyager 1 became the first man-made object to leave the Solar System and is now the farthest man-made object from Earth, more about the Voyager mission – Voyagers Journey to the infinite space in Hindi

14Voyager 1 photographed the farthest Earth

20 fascinating and inspiring fact 14 – In 1990, as part of an ongoing space mission, Voyager 1 took a picture of it while focusing its camera on Earth. It was known as The Pale Blue Dot. Which is 6 billion kilometers away, in which the Earth is visible as a small blue spot in the depth of space. Astronomer Carl Sagan, who first suggested the idea of ​​the photograph, said, “From this distance, the Earth does not seem to be of any particular interest. But for us, it is different. Consider that point again. He is here Is. That’s home. That’s us.”

15Scientists are looking for evidence of extraterrestrial life on Earth

20 fascinating and inspiring fact 15 – Extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) is a project researching whether intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe? And how can we approach extraterrestrial intelligence species? The search involves searching for life on other planets and moons. For example, some moons of Jupiter (such as Io) are promising places to see evidence of primitive life, but the discovery of supernatural life involves scientific research on Earth. If scientific evidence can destroy life independently, it occurs more than once, suggesting that life may occur in more than one place, for more than one time. For this reason, scientists are finding evidence that life may occur more than once on Earth, resulting in intriguing possibilities for the universe.

16400 billion stars

It is estimated that there are 400 billion stars in our galaxy: 20 fascinating and inspiring fact 16 – Our Sun is essential to us, the center of our solar system, and also the source of our light and energy, but it is not just one, but many Are one of the stars that make up the Milky Way, our home galaxy. Current estimates suggest that about 400 billion stars are sharing our galaxy. From the artistic picture concept above, you can find out how big this number can be.

17500 million planets

There may be 500 million planets capable of supporting life in our galaxy. 20 fascinating and inspiring fact 17 – Extraterrestrial life means that many scientists searching for extraterrestrial life are focusing on “Goldilocks planets”. These are planets that fall within the habitable zone of a star. It is in perfect condition for the existence of life on our earth – its distance from the sun is correct due to which the temperature is right for life,

Similarly, water can exist as a liquid-solid and gas on other planets, and the right combination of chemical compounds may be available to form a complex life. Other planets with similar characteristics are known as Goldilocks planets. The Milky Way alone has an estimated 500 million potential Goldilocks planets, so if life could exist in places other than Earth, a large number of potential There are planets on which life can flourish. If these numbers are applied to all galaxies in the universe, there may be a staggering diversity of planets capable of supporting life. Of course, we have no evidence of whether life exists anywhere else, but if man succeeds in finding life on other planets someday, that day will be very big in human history.

18observable universe

20 fascinating and inspiring facts 18 – Many scientists believe that there are possibly more than 170 billion galaxies in the observable universe. To see how many galaxies there are in the universe, different calculations have been done from time to time and this research will continue. At this time, the part of the universe that we can see from the earth with our current technology is not necessarily the universe. There are probably many more but they are still too far to be detected by our space telescopes. Calculated using data from the Hubble telescope and astronomers, there are likely to be around 170 billion galaxies in the observable universe. Many scientists also believe that the number of galaxies can be even more.

19There can be an infinite number of universes

The twenty-ninth fact in 20 fascinating and inspiring facts – this is more a theory than a fact, but many branches of mathematics, quantum mechanics, and astrophysics have come to the same conclusion that our universe is one of the thousands of cosmos and we are one Are present in the multiverse. There are different views on how this could be possible. One is the concept of atoms that is capable of being arranged in a finite number of times only in time and space, ultimately leading to the repetition of events and people. Other theories propose bubble or parallel universes and ‘braneworlds’, which become out of reach of the dimensions we have experienced. Although these concepts seem like far-reaching ideas of science-fiction, they are proving to be the most beautiful solutions to the problems brought about by our discoveries of the universe.

20The human brain is the most complex object in the known universe

Twentieth fact in 20 fascinating and inspiring facts – Our brain is a remarkably complex object with one billion neurons, a quadrillion connections, and we still know very little about it, we don’t know how this organic supercomputer would operate. is. But we know that the human brain is the most complex thing that we have discovered so far. It empowers us to understand language and culture, consciousness, thoughts of self, ability to learn and to understand the universe and our place within it. We also have an inbuilt “model of gravity”, which is very useful.
