Sorry, I do not have any interesting fact but once you start searching online you find out so really weird and wonderful things. I usually get a conversation going when sitting in the hot tub at night looking up at the stars.

SilverSurfer I do not think that we are alone, or there used to be life in the solar system as some of the planets close and far used to be like earth! So theres a possibility there could have been life. There could be life billions of light years away but nothing close to us

Mightymoo I 100% don't think we are not alone in the universe, statistically we cant be the only planet that can sustain life and sadly its something I don't think I will ever find out. I don't think I will be alive when they do have proof and I don't think the world could handle the idea with us being alone and it would change so much with peoples beliefs.

Scientists believe it rains diamonds on Saturn, Jupiter and some other planets in our solar system due to atmospheric conditions and intense pressure. But, sadly the diamonds are destroyed by increasing pressure as they fall closer to the surface of the planet.

ACR that's really interesting, different planets are so interesting comparing them to earth.

I've heard that NASA have found out that the Planet Mars hums sometimes, but they don't know why?

NASA don't seem to have tried too hard to work out why Mars sometimes hums - I reckon it's because it can't whistle and doesn't know the words. Image

While stars can be seen and mapped a huge amount of systems out there are based on rogue planets that didn't have enough material to form a star but instead formed a central planet with moons instead. Tidal gravitational forces could create liquid water on moons so there could be life on such systems even though they are dark and unseen.

Stars move at huge speeds, 70,000 years ago Scholz star was moving within our solar system outer edges. Over the millions or billions of years our solar system has existed probably many stars have passed through our solar system sometimes stealing planets or maybe adding them to our system. It's absolute chaos really so the fact life has survived on Earth could be a huge fluke with so many near misses over millions of years. If you live the short life of a human the universe seems relatively static but it isn't over thousands of years. Scholz star is now 20 light years away and not even the closest star to us.

Also by some coincidence 70,000 years ago the human population was almost wiped out, its numbers went very low for some unknown reason with possibly less than 2,000 surviving.

I like space, and I’m especially interested in moons.

Saturn has 82 known moons, the smallest of which is the same size as a sports arena!

The moon Mimas (again orbiting Saturn) has an appearance similar to the Death Star from Star Wars too given it has a huge crater in it’s surface.

I like looking at Betelgeuse in the constellation of Orion (bright star to top left ) its approx 600 light years away so what see is what it looked like 600 years ago. If you want to see how it looks now 'relatively' youd have to come back in 600 years 😜 However its going supernova so could go bang any time, maybe tomorrow, but it may have done so 590 years ago and we'll find out in 10 years time.
