Although space has been around for millions of years, it is impossible to uncover every new discovery. However, scientists are working day and night to solve these riddles.
Work in space
It has become possible to “live” in space since the year 2000. It is mainly the astronauts from the International Space Station (ISS) who do this. USS is a space station that orbits Earth. Various countries are involved in this, and studies are mainly done.
Absolute silence in space
There is no way in space to hear anything, because it is completely silent. The sound is caused by the vibrations of the air striking the eardrum. But there is no air in space, so the vibrations cannot propagate. This ensures that nothing is heard in the room.
The moon does not have a dark side
You may have heard it, some say the back of the moon is always dark. Unfortunately, this turns out to be incorrect: both sides of the moon receive the same amount of sunlight. The moon needs the same amount of time to circle the Earth once and on its axis. This is why we always see the same side of the Moon from Earth.
