What exactly do we know about the spaciousness that we live in? The fact is – not much. Be prepared to enter into a wowing-state of mind as you read about the Top 11 Coolest Things in Space!
0. Parker Solar Probe
The Parker Solar Probe will have many tools to examine sunlight both remotely and straight. It will explore a region of space which hasn’t been researched earlier. The probe is an unmanned spacecraft is about the size of a tiny motor vehicle. It has a potent rocket must escape Earth’s orbit, change management and reach sunlight. After that, it is going to begin to turn, and it will be the very first craft to travel in the corona.
Being so near sunlight, the autonomous spacecraft should be able to make rapid decisions on its own using artificial intelligence. It’ll use a unique ceramic Carrier that’s soldered at the bottom of each photovoltaic cell that is then connected to the platen using a specially chosen thermally conductive adhesive to allow for optimum thermal conduction to the machine while providing the electrically insulating material.
The corona is challenging to study. The thermal shield is very effective against the extreme light of the sun, but it is not meant to protect the whole craft. The heat shield will reach temperatures almost 1000 celsius however the rest of the aircraft behind the shield will be in a position to maintain room temperature. Since there’s no wind near the Sun’s surface astronomers are bemused on how the solar wind gets the wind. It’s a potent source of radio waves, and it may interfere with Parker’s communications.
Due to the tremendous energy required for the assignment, the Delta IV Heavy’s capacity will be augmented by an extremely successful third phase given by Orbital ATK. The atmosphere 6 million km over the sun’s surface is quite thin, and a minimum quantity of energy will be moved into the probe. Since distance is mainly empty, there are just a few particles which may transfer heat to the spacecraft.
The launch time and date are unknown. Part of this mission is going to be to analyze the strong outbursts that occur on the surface of the Sun. The assignment will last for seven years; it’s likely to create 24 close range passes around the sun.
Do you like diamonds? Be honest; there is almost no person who does not like them. Scientists believe, although this cannot be proved yet, that the real rain of diamonds is falling on Saturn and Jupiter. This happens because of a higher atmosphere, light storms that turn methane into the soot, that soot drops, and the pressure increases, so it becomes more robust and first turns into pieces of graphite. After falling from 6000 km of graffiti pieces, they hardened into diamonds. It is thought that about 1000 tons of diamonds are produced annually on Saturn. So, where do we buy tickets for Saturn? Imagine a planet twice as big as planet earth but made entirely out of diamond. YUP, DIAMOND! 55 Cancri E is the closest planet to its star in Cancer constellation; 40 or so light years far away from us. This planet was once a two-stars dance which stopped the moment one of them devoured the other and then found itself incapable of pulling away from its carbon core -which we all know its the primary material diamonds are born from after incredible heat and pressure conditions. Thus, Rihanna’s favorite planet is a graphite paradise with other silicates in it. There are an uncountable amount of worlds with their magic, but this is one of the coolest.
Although you may have heard of them -since the late 50’s- first observed them, these strange objects still can’t be “accurately” explained due to the distance they are from us. Quasars are the most luminous objects known in the entire universe after blazars, which are compact quasars tearing whole elliptical galaxies apart.
Clusters are vast groups of stars which are born together. This means they come from the same gigantic clouds of gas and dust but not are formed at the same time. As a result, they’re all different in shapes and colors. Unlike the solar system, they gravitate to one another contributing to the gravity force of the overall group. It is said there must be some force that helps to keep them together beyond their interaction.
You probably have had a supernova as a wallpaper. The quantity of energy radiated in 1 supernova explosion is equivalent to the amount of energy which has been emitted by our Sun so far plus the power that it is going to shine for the remainder of its life. They’re one of the most eye-catching scenes in space. Supernova is an enormous explosion of a star that can occur in-universe. It is almost not possible to overstate precisely how ridiculously over-the-top such an explosion is. Supernova is what scientist call the explosion a star makes when its death takes place. It’s sad, but at the same time beautiful.
5. Electrical Currents
These rare currents are believed to be the result of big black hole bursts. These lightning bolts travel to a speed of 150.000 light-years across the universe. These currents can be bigger than the Milky Way galaxy.
Even though the Big Bang theory lets space for colder (empty) or hotter (filled) zones to exist, there are really few voids in space which sizes are too large even to be realistic. We’re living 3 Billion light-years away from the more substantial void discovered (at the moment). In a cosmic perspective, it’s a short distance. In other words, we live at the edge of the “nothingness.” Imagine having your house at the very edge of a hole so deep and large you can’t see the other side or the bottom.
7. Black Holes:
Yes, it’s predictable, but it doesn’t stop being important. Black holes are the result of a massive star collapse after dying and creating a supernova. Despite what people often believe, this object does not eat up the entire existence around them. Of course, if you’re close enough to the event horizon, you can say “bye” because the part when they say “what goes in, stays in” it’s true. Black holes are the “heart” of galaxies since they’re at the center of each one. However, there are “Wandering Black Holes” that are more than 2000 light-years away from the center of their galaxy. This makes scientist ask if there’s something else apart from black holes that keep galaxies together. How cool is that?
8. Dark Matter and Dark Energy:
Ok, let’s start with: not even scientific are capable of explaining this subject easily. None of them can properly understand it. The thing is, we as humans have a limited perception of the universe composición. Until now we’ve only been able to sense energy and matter as we interact with them. Nonetheless, there’s more around us which we haven’t had the chance and resources to interact with. Dark Matter and Dark Energy are elements that allow the life exist as we know it. They counter the effects of gravity and normal matter on the universe like -Ying & Yang, huh? Why is it “cool”? The possibilities of the unknown are doors that mark the difference between “magic” and “reality.” Time traveling? Life after death? What else could be possible? What haven’t our minds thought of? Remember those “Supervoids” and “clusters” we talked before? Well…
Everything in the universe is constantly rotating and turns at incredible speeds. First, the electrons circulate the nucleus of the atoms from which we were created. Since we are on Earth, we turn around its axis. Then, the Earth revolves around the Sun, and the Solar System revolves around a black hole that is in the center of the Milky Way galaxy. The Milky Way turns around a gravitational center located between the Milky Way and Andromeda, all within a larger group of galaxies that revolve around, hey, I feel sick from all that rotating! It feels weird to think about planets wandering across the universe with no clear guide.
That’s right The coolest thing in space is life itself. Remember, us humans are only one of the many forms that life can exist in. As we’ve talked about different types of energy, we can’t forget that life is also a type of energy. How could other forms life use to manifest across the universe? Are there monsters or a superior race? Could all those crazy mythological creatures and goddess be real in some way?
They are so dense and heavy that one spoonful can contain the same mass as 800 Supersize Egyptian Pyramids. And you only talk about the seven wonders of our world! These have incredibly powerful magnetic cores, which send out rapidly jutting x rays and the ferocious Gamma rays. When the stars have eaten upon the fuel that powers their fission, the outer layers collapse and spread over an area of only 50 miles. Imagine our sun, which may be thousands’ of km in diameter, lying flat in a fifty-kilometer stretch. Once, a magnetar burst was so powerful it was capable of blocking out all satellites orbiting our earth. This magnetar was 50.000 light-years away from us.
