Q: What is the fourth planet from the sun? Q: What is the fifth planet from the sun? Q: What is the seventh planet from the sun?

Why are there no green stars?

There are no green stars because the 'black-body spectrum' of stars, which describes the amount of light at each wavelength and depends on temperature, doesn't produce the same spectrum of colours as, for example, a rainbow.

What's inside a black hole?

What is at the center of a black hole? At the center of a black hole, it is often postulated there is something called a gravitational singularity, or singularity. This is where gravity and density are infinite and space-time extends into infinity.

What does space smell like?

A succession of astronauts have described the smell as '… a rather pleasant metallic sensation [like] sweet-smelling welding fumes', 'burning metal', 'a distinct odour of ozone, an acrid smell', 'walnuts and brake pads', 'gunpowder' and even 'burnt almond cookie'.

How are galaxies named?

Some galaxies are given descriptive names (e.g. "Andromeda", "Whirlpool") if they are particularly distinctive in location or appearance. But most galaxies are known from their designation in a catalogue. One of the earliest catalogues of objects in the sky was made by Charles Messier.

Which of the planets have no moons?

Of the terrestrial (rocky) planets of the inner solar system, neither Mercury nor Venus have any moons at all, Earth has one and Mars has its two small moons. In the outer solar system, the gas giants Jupiter and Saturn and the ice giants Uranus and Neptune have dozens of moons.

What are some fun facts about space?

10 Crazy Facts You Didn't Know About Space. SPACE IS COMPLETELY SILENT. THE HOTTEST PLANET IN OUR SOLAR SYSTEM IS 450° C. A FULL NASA SPACE SUIT COSTS $12,000,000. THE SUN'S MASS TAKES UP 99.86% OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM. ONE MILLION EARTHS CAN FIT INSIDE THE SUN. THERE ARE MORE TREES ON EARTH THAN STARS IN THE MILKY WAY.

What is the coldest place in the universe?

At a chilly –459.67 degrees Fahrenheit (–273.15 degrees Celsius), the Boomerang Nebula is the coldest place in the universe (Image credit: ESA/NASA) The nebula gets its name thanks to its shape. The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) confirmed the temperature of the coldest place in the universe. (

Is Saturn the only planet with a ring?

Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second-largest planet in our solar system. Like fellow gas giant Jupiter, Saturn is a massive ball made mostly of hydrogen and helium. Saturn is not the only planet to have rings, but none are as spectacular or as complex as Saturn's. Saturn also has dozens of moons.

Which planet is known as Morning Star?

Mercury Facts Mercury is one of the five planets known to the ancients. They called these planets "wandering stars." Mercury may be seen as an evening "star" near where the sun has set, or as a morning "star" near where the sun will rise.

Who is the first person to go in space?

Yuri Gagarin Yuri Gagarin from the Soviet Union was the first human in space. His vehicle, Vostok 1 circled Earth at a speed of 27,400 kilometers per hour with the flight lasting 108 minutes. Vostok's reentry was controlled by a computer. Unlike the early U.S. human spaceflight programs, Gagarin did not land inside of capsule.

What planet has rings around it?

Saturn's No other planet in our solar system has rings as splendid as Saturn's. They are so expansive and bright that they were discovered as soon as humans began pointing telescopes at the night sky.

Are there pink stars?

The largest, R136a1, is approximately 260 times the Sun's mass; the light from these hot, new, bright stars is predominantly blue, however. At first glance, it's surprising, since there are no pink stars, and the majority of young starlight is preferentially blue.

Are there black stars?

Dark stars only exist at high redshifts, making them an observing challenge. The infrared Ultra Deep Field images taken by Hubble were used to look for dark stars, but none were found. This doesn't necessarily mean they don't exist, as there could be less luminous dark stars lurking beyond Hubble's vision.

Are there purple stars?

Green and purple stars do exist. The color of stars depends on their temperatures, and they emit radiation throughout the visible spectrum. But when a star emits peak radiation at a wavelength we define as green, it also emits radiation over the rest of the spectrum.

Is there a white hole?

The short answer, unfortunately, is no. White holes are really just something scientists have imagined — they could exist, but we've never seen one, or even seen clues that one may exist. For now, they are an idea. To put it simply, you can imagine a white hole as being a black hole in reverse.

Do wormholes exist?

Einstein's theory of general relativity mathematically predicts the existence of wormholes, but none have been discovered to date. A negative mass wormhole might be spotted by the way its gravity affects light that passes by.
