Did you know that?
The International Space Station covers 17,150 miles per hour and travels the Earth every 92 minutes. This means that the lucky astronauts on board will see that the sun rises every 92 minutes, 16 days of sunshine a day.
Our sun is one of at least 100 billion stars, only in the Milky Way. Scientists calculate that there are at least 100 billion galaxies in the observable universe, each of which is full of stars. There are more stars than grains of sand on all the beaches of the earth.
In 1995, the first planet was discovered beyond our solar system. Thousands of planets have been found in orbit around sun-like stars, also known as extrasolar planets.
The international space station
The speed with which the ISS International Space Station flies is 17,150 miles per hour. Orbit around the Earth every 92 minutes. This means that the astronauts have the opportunity to see the sunrise every 92 minutes, 16 times a day. (Nice)
There are at least 100 billion stars in the Milky Way and our sun is one. Scientists estimate that there are more than 100 billion galaxies full of stars in the universe. I bet you did not know there are more stars than sand on all the beaches in the world.
The first planet outside our solar system was discovered in 1995. Scientists have now discovered thousands of planets orbiting the sun like stars. They are called exoplanets
We’re probably not alone
We have not yet found life on other planets, but that does not mean it does not exist. In fact, the odds indicate that we are only one of many intelligent life forms on other planets.
At the beginning of this year, in April 2014, scientists discovered the “cousin” of the Earth – Kepler 186f. This rocky planet, 500 years ago, has roughly the same size and the same temperature as the Earth. So there is a good chance that vegetation can at least thrive there. So far, all the planets we have discovered have been too hot, too cold or too clumsy to support life as we know it.
And the earth will probably be many cousins – the known universe consists of more than 100 billion galaxies, each with about 200 million stars, and an unimaginable number of planets – we know only a small part of our universe
We’re probably not alone
That life has not been found on other planets does not mean it does not exist. In fact, the odds indicate that we are just one of many intelligent beings on other planets.
In early April 2014, scientists invented what is believed to be the “cousin” of the Earth, known as Kepler-186F. It is a rocky planet. And there are 500 years of light, it was more or less the same size and the same temperature as the earth, so there’s a good chance you’ll find at least the vegetation. So far, it has been discovered that all the uncovered planets are too cold, gaseous or hot to sustain life.
In light of this, it is assumed that there are probably many other cousins of the Earth – the universe we already know, is made up of over a hundred billion galaxies, each with about two hundred million stars and planets, are innumerable: we know a small part of this beautiful universe of us.
