As the Earth Rotates On Its axis, a point on Ecuador is moving at about 1.600 km per hour. In STI revolution around the Sun, the Earth travels about 30 km per second. On a day goes more Than 2.5 million km

It is paradoxical That the diameter of Earth's orbit is Almost Exactly One Thousand Times Greater Than the distance light travels in one second.

The Earth's annual journey around the Sun is Nearly a billion miles to ten-year-old has ten billion miles Traveled Almost Even If You Have never left the town in Which They Live.

Turning Itself on the Milky Way, the Sun and Its planets move about 250 km per second. Even so, the Sun Takes about 200 million years to make a full rotation around the center of the galaxy.

The galaxies Are Rapidly moving from Each Other in the universe. Some of Them More Than travel 100 000 km per second.

It Would Take More Than a million just like Earth areas to an area equal to That of the Sun

Some large "flares" that come from the Sun (solar prominence) Reach a height of Several Hundreds of Thousands of kilometers. Highest on record 1.6 million kilometers WAS:

Would it take 27 000 million suns for an area as large as the red giant star Epsilon Aurigae Called.

Every hour, about a million meteorites Reaching Our atmosphere. Almost everyone, with very FEW exceptions, disintegrate, Before Reaching Earth's surface. However, the meteorites May represents real hazard to space travel.

In Our Milky Way galaxy There Are at least 200.000 million stars.

It is Known That the universe has more Than one hundred billion galaxies.

If all the stars in the Milky Way Have name, Would it take 4.000 years to say them all, Assuming it to comment one per second Without stopping.

In all the galaxies together Probably Should Have as Many Stars There Are as grains of sand on all beaches of the globe.

The nearest star to Our Sun is 40 billion miles from it.

Despit the millions of stars Existing space is not too busy. Is so filled with stars as it South America squirrels Would Be If There Were Only three of them to be running all over the continent.

The length of Our galaxy is about 100 000 light years (100 000 times 10 trillion km).

Our Sun is about 30 000 light years (30 000 times 10 billion km) from the center of the Milky Way.

The Great Spiral in Andromeda is the Nearest Galaxy to Our Milky Way. Is at a distance of over 2 million light years (20 trillion km).

Distant galaxies seen with Can Be Are Our telescopes at a distance of about 2 000 million light years, about mind.

The surface temperature of the Sun is 6 000 ° C. Inside Reaches 14 million degrees.

In one year, the Sun uses 22 trillion tons of hydrogen to produce the energy it radiates. Despit But this, ITS reserves of hydrogen will allow you to still exist for billions of years.

The Crab Nebula is an Immense cloud of gas That extends over 25 000 billion km from 5 000 years ago, the nebula is growing by 1,000 km per second.

A spoonful of matter Which Way Certain stars (dwarf stars) on Earth Would weigh over a ton.

The pull of gravity on the surface of the dwarf star That Came to Sirius (Sirius B) is Greater Than 250 000 times Earth's surface.
