Neutron stars are the densal object known in the universe. They are created inside large stars during a supernova explosion. When the core of the star collapses, electron and proton pairs get crushed down into neutrons.They are heavier than many stars.It weighs around 100million tons.Thats more than  a large mountain.

Human beings are literally made out of stars stuff.Almost all the chemical elements that make up a person come from the stars.Any element heavier than hydrogen originated in the stars and we are definitely composed of more than hydrogen.

6.One Million Earths Could Fit Inside The Sun

The image is a combination of data from two satellites. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument aboard NASA’s Terra satellite collected the land surface data over 16 days, while NOAA’s Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) produced a snapshot of the Earth’s clouds. Image created by Reto Stöckli, Nazmi El Saleous, and Marit Jentoft-Nilsen, NASA GSFC Credit: NASA Earth Observatory NASA Goddard Space Flight Center enables NASA’s mission through four scientific endeavors: Earth Science, Heliophysics, Solar System Exploration, and Astrophysics. Goddard plays a leading role in NASA’s accomplishments by contributing compelling scientific knowledge to advance the Agency’s mission. Follow us on Twitter Like us on Facebook Find us on Instagram

Even though there are lots of star none is more important than sun.When compared to other stars it is fairly small.Approximately one million Earth could fit inside the dwarf sun.

7.The Higgs Boson Particle Gives Form to the Universe

The Higgs boson the heaviest element in existence.This cosmic soup “molasses” weighs down the tiny particles that make up atoms giving them substance without the Higgs boson,the universe would most likely be a land of cosmic “soup” where particles Zip around,absent any substantial.

The  Milky Way Galaxy, which is to say our very own galaxy, is on a collision course with our nearest neighbor, the Andromeda Galaxy. Even though these two conglomerations of stars are destined to smash together, you shouldn’t lose any sleep over the incident. The impending impact won’t happen for another 3 billion years.

10.The Earth Is Billions of Years Old
