Some universal facts.......



The earth is over 330,000 times smaller than the sun.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
The Earth is 4.5 billion years old.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
71% of the Earth√Ęs surface is covered with water.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
Jupiter is a planet made entirely of gases.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
Pluto is the smallest planet in our solar system, and the farthest of the planets away from the sun.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
There are over six billion people living on Earth!
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
The first animal sent up to outer space was a dog.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
The Earth is 93 million miles away from the sun.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
97% of the earth's water is undrinkable!
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
A giant game of cosmic pool was played when the solar system was first formed billions of years ago. Neptune was hit by an asteroid so big it was knocked sideways on its axis. It orbits with one pole pointed at the sun. 
Venus was hit so hard it is almost upside down and is the only planet to spin backwards on its axis. 
And most astronomers believe the Moon was formed when an asteroid almost the size of Mars hit Earth and shot debris into orbit. I wonder who won the game and when is the next tournament?

When you think you're standing still remember this fact. Even though you don't feel it, our entire local group of galaxies is moving at about one million miles per hour toward another galaxy group called the Virgo Cluster.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
Scientist believe that diamond rains occur on Neptune and Uranus. The heart of these planets may be a layer of diamonds hundreds of miles thick.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
Jupiter's giant red spot is like a tornado and it is 3 times bigger than the earth.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
The largest crater on the moon measures 183 miles across.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
Astronomers know Mars is a backwards planet. Once a year, for several days, it appears to move backwards in its orbit. This is actually an optical illusion when the faster orbit of Earth races past Mars.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
The farthest you can see with the naked eye is 2.4 million light years away! (140,000,000, 000,000,000, 000 miles.) That's the distance to the giant Andromeda Galaxy. You can see it easily as a dim, large gray "cloud" almost directly overhead in a clear night sky.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
Australia is the only continent on earth without an active volcano.
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- -----
If you could live on the planet Mercury, a year would only last 88 days.
