Today while I was browsing through some science websites, this idea struck my mind, why not write a post about physics facts. So here are a bunch of random and cool physics facts for you. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing this post. 1. The Kaye Effect Have you
Saturn is huge. It is the second largest planet in our Solar System. Jupiter is the only planet that is bigger. You cannot stand on Saturn. It is not like Earth. Saturn is made mostly of gases. It has a lot of helium. This is the same kind of gas that you put in balloons.
Early sunglasses served a special purpose and it wasn’t to block the rays of the sun. Smoke tinting was the first means of darkening eyeglasses, and the technology was developed in China prior to 1430. These darkened lenses were not vision-corrected. Chinese judges had routinely worn smoke-colored quartz lenses to conceal their eye expressions in
Containing more than 99.8% of the total mass of the Solar System, the Sun is by far the largest object in the Solar System. 109 Earths would be required to even fit across the Sun’s disk, and the Sun’s interior could hold over 1.3 million Earths. Within the core of the Sun, the temperature (15,000,000
Scientists believe that we can only see about 5% of the matter in the Universe. The rest is made up of invisible matter (called Dark Matter) and a mysterious form of energy known as Dark Energy. Neutron stars are so dense, that a soup can full of neutron star material would have more mass than
If two pieces of pure metal without any coating, touch in space, they become permanently stuck together. This phenomena is known as cold welding! This doesn’t happen on earth because the atmosphere puts a layer of oxidized material between the surfaces. Uranus was originally called George’s Star. Uranus was also the first planet to be
