Do you know how scary is Space?

Updated: Nov 16, 2020

Our space is vast and its very dark. It have lots of objects we can see in the space like planets, exoplanets, Stars, asteroids..etc. But those things are appear in different forms which makes us little bit scary. Lets look some of the scary things we can see in the space.


Did you ever heard about Miranda the Monster Moon?

Uranus, the seventh planet from our Sun have moon named Miranda. It's an icy Moon.If you look closely at Miranda, When you look at that moon you can notice a mismatched appearance. That appearance can scars a sign that this moon was patched together like Frankenstein’s monster. But reality is that hose patches are actually deep craters, high ridges, and extreme cliffs.


Do you know that our sun have frightening face?

In October 2014 a rare pictured captured by NASA. That picture captured by NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. The picture makes little bit scary. Actually the picture shows that our Sun is ready for Halloween. The sun face is like a pumpkin face in that picture. Reality is that active regions of the Sun that emit large amounts of light and energy and those regions happened to look like a ghoulish grin.


How mystery is our Black Hole. Are we right?

Do you know that black holes are mystery we have some information about black hole now. A black hole is an mystery object that even a light can escape, it is believed that black hole is so strong and there is no gravity inside the black hole. Actually we cannot see black hole properly due to our limitations and we can see only how black hole swallowing stars, planets and other object around them. Our own galaxy Milky way have a black hole at its center part.


Some movies shows that black hole is an another world or we can travel to another world and its a path or gateway to that world but according to the scientist when you really got too close to a black hole, the pull of gravity would be so strong that you would be stretched into a long thin noodle of material.


Do you know about the unending darkness of our Moon? Seems it scary i am right!

There is a place with no sunlight, is it possible. Yes it is. How scary it is ? In our solar system such kind of places are really existing. When our Moon turns as it orbits Earth each month, exposing nearly its entire surface to sunlight, there some places in our Moon, the Sun never rises above the rims of some craters near the Moon's poles. Those craters haven’t seen the Sun for billions of years because they have been in the dark side of the moon.


Do you know that there is sound in space?


Yes, it is true that space have sound but humans cannot hear through human ear. We feel that space is no sound area and sound cannot travel their through vacuum of space. We can detect wave energy with other kind of devices. Some events happened in the space NASA has turn those wave energy into sound and converted it into that human ears can hear.

In spring we can see there is a change in Mars ground. When we look above the high ground it actually ground looks like spiders. But reality it's not spiders. Then what it is that things. When frozen carbon dioxide below the mars surface warms enough, it transforms from solid to gas. There are lots of trapped gas in their, that builds in pressure until it breaks through the Martian surface as a jet, that shoots through the surface and it scatters dark dust around the vent. That’s what creates these spider like features on the surface.


Weird appearances of exoplanets

When we look into space we can see the planets that existed in our solar system. These kinds of planets we commonly called as exoplanets. There some exoplanets looks like our Earth. That's weird i am right. In this photo a exoplanet named HD 189733 b, it looks like our planet Earth, it have blue color appearance making most resemblance like our planet Earth. But weather on this exoplanet is too much different as compared to our Earth.


A asteroid like Skull

In 2015 a skull shaped asteroid passed on our Earth in a Halloween Day. The asteroid named as 2015 TB145. Lately scientists find out that asteroid is a burned comet parts. That asteroid measured around 2,000 feet or 600 meters wide. If that's a human then the person would have to been 4.5 km tall.


Dead Satellites or spacecraft


When a satellite finished the mission or unexpectedly loss contact or satellite crashed. It will consider as that satellite is dead. Then after that what will happen to that satellites. In outside Earth's atmosphere small satellites drive into the Earth atmosphere it will burn up.If the spacecraft is too far away to head back toward Earth, the satellite is instead sent into a far out graveyard orbit, many thousands of miles away from Earth. Out there, the dead satellite won’t burn up, but it will at least stay out of the way of active working satellites.
