The Sun’s Staggering Strength

Despite its serene appearance when viewed from Earth, the energy produced from the Sun is so strong that every second its core releases the equivalent of 100 billion nuclear bombs.

The Skies: A Visual History Textbook

The next time you’re cloud watching, ponder this: by studying the skies, you are essentially staring into history. Why? The light you presently enjoy travels from distant stars and galaxies takes hundreds, thousands and sometimes millions of years to reach us.

Bizarre Weather

While Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun, its temperatures can reach a biting -280 degrees Fahrenheit as Mercury lacks the atmospheric pressure necessary to trap heat. Venus, on the other hand, has a thick atmosphere to trap heat and is markedly hotter than Mercury, despite being farther away from the sun.


A Permanent Foot On The Moon

If you are ever lucky or wealthy enough to gallivant to the moon, you can expect your presence to remain much longer than anticipated. As there is no air or wind on the moon, your footprints are likely to last forever (barring a meteoric collision, of course).



A Treasure Hunter’s Dream: The Diamond Star

In 2004, astronomers discovered a star made entirely of diamonds. The crystallized white dwarf measures over 2,400 miles across and is composed of 10 billion trillion trillion carats. Unfortunately for treasure hunters, though, it is also 50 light years from Earth.


Grow By Leaving The Planet

If you consider yourself “vertically challenged,” you should consider becoming an astronaut. The path toward realizing said career is a long one, but since the lack of gravity in space allows for the elongation of the spine, you would grow two inches while floating in the Milky Way.

the only facts that seem true is the stars, an growing 2 inches. That other sh*t is full of sh*t . If stars can stop existing before the light from the star even get here, how they see planet diamond from 50 light years. The light has to go to an from a telescope an no probe has traveled light years (to my knowledge) an suns are not made of compressed coal an if it was how would they know without seeing the inside to see it was made of diamond. (pretty sure nasa woulda cashed in some how). Im not even sure if we've ever landed on the moon . Then the son produces 100billion (more then bill gates money) weapons of mass destruction every second and mercury is cold (lost me). With that said my last thoughts: the sun is very powerful and it wouldn't matter if it took nasa 100billion missions a second planet diamond is a lick if you could get any of it.
