1. Space is (almost) silent
Space is a “vacuum” and noise needs something to pass through. Since there is no atmosphere in space -- like there is on Earth and most other planets -- there is no medium for sound to travel through, and that’s why you can’t hear yourself talk in space. OR SO THEY THOUGHT! Scientists recorded space sounds for over a year, crammed it into 6 minutes of audio, and when you do that, you can actually hear noises. So, space is pretty silent, but if you’re tricky enough about it, you can actually hear it whisper.
2. Venus’s day is LONGER than its YEAR
A year is measured by how long it takes a planet to make a “lap” around the sun. A day is measured by how quickly a planet twirls around on its axis (like an ice skater twirling in a tight circle opposed to skating around the entire ice rink). Venus spins on its axis SOOOOO SLOWLY that it takes LESS TIME for an entire year to complete than it does for it to make a full rotation on its own axis. 1 year on Venus = 225 Earth days. 1 day on Venus = 243 Earth days. That means your birthday is every day on Venus!
3. There is a GINORMOUS ocean-cloud floating around in space.
A massive water vapor cloud was found 10 billion light years away. It is so big that it holds… wait for it… 140 TRILLION times the amount of ALL THE WATER on Earth combined. 140 Trillion times all the water in the literal world. Just hanging out in space. Floating around. What if there were creatures in there? What would they look like?
