There is still lot to be explored about outer space by modern science, but of that little we do know, there are some extraordinarily amazing things. This is a list of the top 10 most Interesting facts about Space:

  1. If you put Saturn in water it would float. Actually the density of Saturn is so low that if you were to put it in a giant glass of water it would float. The actual density of Saturn is 0.687 g/cm3 while the density of water is 0.998 g/cm3.
  2. If luckily, you get chance to visit moon, your footprints will remain there forever. Its because Moon has no weather or wind.
  3. Commonly known as carbon planet or carbide planet is full of diamonds. Astronomers discovered this planet in 2004.
  4. If two pieces of metal touch in space, they become permanently stuck together. This may sound unbelievable, but it is true. Two pieces of metal without any coating on them will form in to one piece in the vacuum of space. It is called cold welding.  Its a rare way to bond two metals.
  5. The rotation of our earth is getting slow by 0.001 to 0.002 seconds every century. Due to this slower rotation the length of the days are increasing.
  6. We are moving through space at the rate of 530 km/second. Our Galaxy – the Milky Way is spinning at a rate of 225 kilometers per second. In addition, the galaxy is travelling through space at the rate of 305 kilometers per second. This means that we are traveling at a total speed of 530 kilometers (330 miles) per second.
  7. If you can calculate one star per second then you can count all the stars in 3000 years.
  8. There is no air in space so you can’t hear anyone even if he/she shouts in front of you.
  9. The rotation of Pluto completes in 6 days and 9 hours approximately. So the length of Pluto’s day is equal to one week of Earth.
  10. The bird’s can’t survive in space because they need gravitational force to swallow and there is no gravity in space.
