Random Facts About Space...

--248 Earth years = ONE Pluto year. The United States hasn't even been a country for one Pluto year yet. 

--The moon is 3500 km in diameter, and the USA is 4200 km across. AKA: we're about the same size. 

--41% of the moon is not visible from earth at any time.

--There are more stars in the universe than there are grains of sands on all Earth's beaches and deserts. 

--If you put Saturn in water it would float.

--The light hitting the earth right now is 30 thousand years old.

--The Big Dipper is not a constellation. WHAT.

--The Milky Way is currently absorbing a smaller galazy known as the Sagittarius dwarf elliptical galaxy. In turn Andromeda will absorb the Milky Way in two billion years.
