Riddles of the Universe
It's no secret that outer space is full of unexplained mysteries and unsolved mysteries that continue to disturb the minds of scientists trying to find logical answers to them. From the mysterious dark matter to the multiverse, the truth behind these mysteries may turn out to be more surprising than the most incredible fiction!
There is so much gold in the bowels of our planet that it can cover the entire surface of the globe Facts about the Earth such as this one will interest lovers of precious metals. So, gold. Most of the gold is hidden at the bottom of the oceans. If you get it, without exception, every person can become the proud owner of 5 kg of precious metal. However, by that time it will cease to be so! By the way, tons of gold are contained in sea water, alas, in dissolved form.
Earth is the third planet from the Sun in the solar system. The densest, fifth in diameter and mass among all the planets and the largest among the terrestrial planets, which also includes Mercury, Venus and Mars. The only body currently known to man in the universe, inhabited by living organisms.
Saturn has a distinct change of seasons. One season lasts more than seven Earth years. The planet is not exactly spherical. The speed of its rotation is so great that it flattens itself. Until now, there is no unified theory of the formation of Saturn's rings. Saturn has a powerful magnetic field that extends for about a million kilometers. It does not have a solid surface. The wind speed on this planet can reach 1800 kilometers per hour. There are northern lights on Saturn.
A day on Uranus lasts 17 Earth hours, and a year is 84 Earth years. Uranus appears visually blue-green due to the presence of a small amount of methane in the atmosphere. Monstrous storms periodically rage on the surface of Uranus, covering an area the size of the North American continent. The atmosphere of Uranus is the coldest known, at around -224 degrees Celsius. Uranus is the least explored planet in the solar system.
The Moon is 384,000 kilometers from Earth and has a diameter of 3,476 kilometers, four times smaller than the diameter of the Earth. But not only the Earth attracts the Moon, but the Moon, in accordance with all the laws of physics, attracts the Earth. It turns out that the Moon circles around us, and we around it, and both planets are inextricably linked. And although the presence of the Moon is a necessary condition for keeping the Earth in the solar system, the price for this “service” may be the murder of all life on Earth, which this dwarf planet will someday commit. And the murder weapon will be ... the insignificant force of gravity of the Moon!
The volume of Jupiter is 1300 times the volume of the Earth, and gravity is two and a half times greater than the Earth's. The mass of Jupiter is two and a half times that of all the other planets in our system combined. Jupiter has the most powerful magnetic field in the solar system. A day on Jupiter is 10 Earth hours and a year is 12 Earth years.
Pluto has an atmosphere composed of nitrogen mixed with carbon monoxide and methane. Of all the currently known dwarf planets, by the way, only Pluto has an atmosphere. One year on Pluto is equal to two hundred and forty-eight Earth years. A day here lasts a little less than an Earth week.
