Oh boy A lot of stuff happened since the last update on this project. New ideas, new reactions, new everything. First things first, for the sake of saving resources, time and money, the space station will be the form of a torus (basically a space donut). I’m still not done with the outside layer, but […]Read More CREATING A SPACE STATION (Part 2)
Long time no see. I’m back (at least for a while). I have a project in mind that consists of creating a space station with artificial gravity by using centrifugal force. I know it has been thought of before, and it’s not very cost-efficient, but a circular space station spinning is the best chance we […]Read More New project (Artificial Gravity)
The Universe is all of the space and time that we live in, contain all existing matter such planets, stars, nebulas, and every other thing that comes into your mind. The Universe was created about 13,7 billion years ago, and it is continuously expanding since then. But if there is one thing that we don’t […]Read More The future of our universe
The Milky Way, if you didn’t know, is the galaxy that we live in. Imagine our Solar System, make it 160,256,410 times wider and add 300 billion stars and you’ve got the Milky Way. Just the like the Earth is orbiting the Sun, so is the Solar System orbiting around the centre of the Milky Way. […]Read More Our home, The Milky Way
After a very long pause, I am finally back. Sorry for the inactivity. I got burned out and didn’t have any ideas to write about. Now that I collected a decent number of ideas to maintain this blog I think it is time to start with the first one: Space Stations. So what exactly is […]Read More Space Stations Explained
I was getting bored of all of the “Facts about” articles that I wrote so I decided to change my style a little bit. From now on I will write everything I know about a particular object in space. So let’s start with the giant yellow ball that warms us every day, the Sun. Our […]Read More The Sun and what do we know about it
1. Density Because the density of Saturn is smaller than the density of water, theoretically, if there was an ocean big enough, Saturn could easily float on the top of it. 2. Rings The rings of Saturn are composed of rock, dust and ice. These pieces could range from as small as grains of sand […]Read More Interesting facts about Saturn
Yesterday, on the 21st of August 2017 took place the first total solar eclipse in 38 years. A solar eclipse is an event in which the moon passes between the sun and Earth, and blocks a part or all of the sun for 3 to 4 hours. The eclipse was visible in all North America […]Read More The Great American Solar Eclipse
About 70% of Earth’s surface is covered with water, 97% of which is composed of our oceans and is salted water, and the rest 3% is freshwater found in lakes and in glacier and polar caps. But where did all this water come from? Remnants of an old star Scientists believe that some of the […]Read More Where did the water on Earth come from?
Our sun was formed in a period of 30-50 million years, with the materials of a dead star. Most stars are formed inside a nebula, but through what does a star go before becoming a star? Stage 1: Protostar No nebulae have a uniform density. There always exist knots that are denser than other parts […]Read More How is a star born?
