Space is big, really big. Some scientists estimate it may even be bigger than one direction. So, warm up: read the list of facts below and answer the following two questions.
Question 2– Which facts did you already know?
1. Exposed in Space
Ever wonder what would happen to your body if you were in Space without a spacesuit? Gases would expand in your lungs, moisture in your eyes and mouth would begin to boil, and then you would swell up, lose vision, turn blue, and get a sunburn. And it only takes 90 seconds for your body to feel the pain.
2. Water Spheres
Liquids in space shape themselves into spheres. How cool is that?
3. Welding in Space Slide
If you press two metals together in space, they will fuse together. As easy as building with Legos!
4. One Long Summer
Summer on Uranus lasts one long day equivalent to 42 Earth years. I think I would really miss the snow.
5. Wind in the Hair
Neptune is the windiest planet. Winds travel up to 1300 MPH. That’s blazing fast!
6. Massive Ball of Energy
What would happen if the Sun suddenly stopped producing energy? It would still take a whopping 50 million years for the effects to be felt on Earth.
7. Ancient Light Slide
The light hitting the Earth right now is 30 thousand years old. Amazing, isn’t it?
8. Freezing Cold
Mercury is closest to the sun, but temperatues can reach -280 degrees F. Why you ask? Mercury has no way to trap heat because it has almost no atmosphere, so the side away from the sun gets extremely cold.
9. Enjoy the Silence
There is no sound in space because there are no molecules to conduct it. If something explodes, there will just be silence.
10. Growing in Outer Space
Did you know you get taller in space?
11. We are not Alone
The Milky Way Galaxy is one of billions in space. Who knows what else is out there!
