Surprising Things About the Universe: Collection of fascinating and enigmatic facts about the universe, space, and planets

About the Book

After sleeping through a hundred million years in wisps, ashes and smoking gun, we – the rational beings developed from the Darwin's principle of natural selection − still don't fully understand space, our solar system, and the galaxy. The entire cosmos, of which the planet Earth and the human species are a part, is made up of space, time, matter, and energy. Astronomers' understanding of the cosmos is always changing since there are billions of stars and galaxies, as well as stormy planets, exploding stars and weird black holes in our own galaxy that have not yet been thoroughly examined or defined. But we – a hoard of talking monkeys whose consciousness is from a collection of connected neurons – do currently know some extremely interesting things about the universe.

How did the Universe begin? What elements make up stars? What is the true nature of the universe? Have there ever been inhabitants of Mars? How many moons could fit inside earth? From its accelerated expansion to dark matter and energy, the universe continues to amaze and perplex us. The size of the cosmos is unknown, but one thing is for certain: it is vast. The concept of something so enormous can make our existence on the planet Earth feel insignificant because there is obviously a lot of exciting stuff going on in there. This book takes us on a voyage across the galaxy, visiting all the planets, the Moon, the Sun, stars, black holes, comets, asteroids, and more. This is a great addition to your bookshelf whether you are working on an astronomical assignment or you simply want to learn more about our amazing universe.
