I was most shocked by the price of the spacesuits! That’s a lot of money…
Also I liked the collision of metal, diamond planet, and lack of footprints on the moon.

Not the specifics, but I did know about the collision, the moon, the super large mass of the sun, and a few others.

I’m sure there are, but I can’t think of any off the top of my head!


I read the title as “Cool Facts About Snape” and ran over here so fast-

These are some fun facts I enjoyed about space:

  1. Neutron stars can spin at a rate of 600 rotations per second
  2. There is an uncountable number of stars in the known universe.
    3.The Apollo astronauts’ footprints on the moon will probably stay there for at least 100 million years.
  3. 99 percent of our solar system’s mass is the sun

That the astronaut’s footprint will stay there for 100 million years :joy:

I knew space was completely silent

More energy from the sun hits Earth every hour than the planet uses in a year

@Discussions, what do you know about space?


That’s it’s big and vast, and we can see it at night.
