1. Mars’s volcano Olympus Mons is the biggest in the solar system. It covers the same area as Ireland and is three times higher than our Mount Everest.

 

2. Life is known to exist only on Earth, but in 1986 NASA found what they thought might be fossils of microscopic living things in a rock from Mars.

 

3. Most scientists say life’s basic chemicals formed on the Earth. The astronomer Fred Hoyle said they came from space.

 

4. Oxygen is circulated around the helmet in space suits in order to prevent the visor from misting.

 

5. The middle layers of space suits are blown up like a balloon to press against the astronaut’s body. Without this pressure, the astronaut’s body would boil!

 

6. The gloves included in the spacesuit have silicon rubber fingertips that allow the astronaut some sense of touch.

 

7. The full cost of a spacesuit is about $11 million.

 

9. Glowing nebulae are named so because they give off a dim, red light, as the hydrogen gas in them is heated by radiation from the nearby stars.

 

 

10. The Drake Equation was proposed by astronomer Frank Drake to work out how many civilizations there could be in our galaxy – and the figure is in millions.

 

11. SETI is the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence – the program that analyzes radio signals from space for signs of intelligent life.

 

12. The Milky Way galaxy we live in: is one among the BILLIONS in space.

 

13. The Milky Way galaxy is whirling rapidly, spinning our sun and all its other stars at around 100 million km per hour.

 

14. The Sun travels around the galaxy once every 200 million years – a journey of 100,000 light-years.

 

15. There may be a huge black hole in the very middle of the most of the galaxies.

 

16. The Universe is probably about 15 billion years old, but the estimations vary.

 

17. One problem with working out the age of the Universe is that there are stars in our galaxy which are thought to be 14 to 18 billion years old – older than the estimated age of the Universe. So, either the stars must be younger, or the Universe older.

 

18. A day in Mercury lasts approximately as long as 59 days on earth.

 

19. As the earth turns, the stars come back to the same place in the night sky every 23 hours, 56 minutes and 4.09 seconds. This is a sidereal day (star day).

 

20. From the moon, astronauts brought back 380 kg of Moonrock

9/11 ATTACKS 

On September 11, 2001, 19 Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C.,Image result for 9/11 ATTACKS and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Two of the planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. A total of 2,996 people were killed in the 9/11 attacks.

The twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City

On September 11, 2001, at 8:45 a.m. on a clear Tuesday morning, an American Airlines Boeing 767 loaded with 20,000 gallons of jet fuel crashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. The impact left a gaping, burning hole near the 80th floor of the 110-story skyscraper, instantly killing hundreds of people and trapping hundreds more in higher floors. As the evacuation of the tower and its twin got underway, television cameras broadcasted live images of what initially appeared to be a freak accident. Then, 18 minutes after the first plane hit, a second Boeing 767—United Airlines Flight 175—appeared out of the sky, turned sharply toward the World Trade Center and sliced into the south tower near the 60th floor.The collision caused a massive explosion that showered burning debris over surrounding buildings and onto the streets below. It immediately became clear that America was under attack. Less than 15 minutes after the terrorists struck the nerve center of the U.S. military, the horror in New York took a catastrophic turn when the south tower of the World Trade Center collapsed in a massive cloud of dust and smoke.The structural steel of the skyscraper, built to withstand winds in excess of 200 miles per hour and a large conventional fire, could not withstand the tremendous heat generated by the burning jet fuel.American Photography At 10:30 a.m., the north building of the twin towers collapsed. Only six people in the World Trade Center towers at the time of their collapse survived. Almost 10,000 others were treated for injuries.

 

As millions watched the events unfolding in New York, American Airlines Flight 77 circled over downtown Washington, D.C., before crashing into the west side of the Pentagon military headquarters at 9:45 a.m. Jet fuel from the Boeing 757 caused a devastating inferno that led to the structural collapse of a portion of the giant concrete building, which is the headquarters of the U.S. Image result for The pentagon crash 9/11Department of Defense. All told, 125 military personnel and civilians were killed in the Pentagon, along with all 64 people aboard the airliner.

United Flight 93

Meanwhile, a fourth California-bound plane—United Flight 93—was hijacked about 40 minutes after leaving Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey. Because the plane had been delayed in taking off, passengers on board learned of events in New York and Washington via cell phone and Airfone calls to the ground. Knowing that the aircraft was not returning to an airport as the hijackers claimed, a group of passengers and flight attendants planned an insurrection .The plane then flipped over and sped toward the ground at upwards of 500 miles per hour, crashing in a rural field near Shanksville in western Pennsylvania at 10:10 a.m. All 44 people aboard were killed. Its intended target is not known, but theories include the White House, the U.S. Capitol.Image result for The flight 93 9/11

20 Interesting Facts About Burj Khalifa

Fact About Building Burj Khalifa

Over 12,000 professionals and skilled workers from more than 100 countries were on site every day. Over 45,000 cubic metres 1.59 million cubic feet of concrete, weighing more than 110,000 tonnes, were used to construct the concrete and steel foundations. 330,000 cubic. 11.6 million cubic feet of concrete 39,000  of reinforced steel; 103,000 sq m 1.1 million square feet of glass; 15,500 square 166,800 square feet  of embossed stainless steel and the tower took 22 million man hours to build.  The concrete used is equivalent to a sidewalk 1,900 kilometres 1,200 miles in length, and the weight of 100,000 elephants.

Foundation

The superstructure is supported by a large reinforced concrete mat, which is in turn supported by bored reinforced concrete piles. The mat is 3.7 metres thick, and was constructed in four separate pours totalling 12,500 cubic metres of concrete

MAINTENANCE

  WATER

The tower’s water system supplies an average of 946,000 litres 250,000 gallons of water daily. At peak cooling, Burj Khalifa will require about 10,000 tonnes of cooling  This water is collected and drained in a separate piping system to a holding tank in the basement car park. The condensate collection system provides about 15 million gallons of supplement water per year, equal to about 20 Olympic-sized swimming pools

ELECTRICAL

 

The tower’s peak electrical demand is 36mW, equal to about 360,000 bulbs of 100 watts operating.

Fire Safety & Security

Fire safety and speed of evacuation were prime consideration in the design of Burj Khalifa. Concrete surrounds all stairwells and the building service and fireman’s elevator has a capacity of 5,500 kg and is the world’s tallest service elevator. There are pressurized, air-conditioned refuge areas located approximately every 25 floors.

The view of the stars from space is similar to the experience you’d have if you went to Colorado, climbed a mountain, and didn’t have any lights

The ISS crews have eaten about 25,000 meals since 2000. That’s a staggering “seven tons of supplies per three astronauts for six months.”That’s 32,558 Big Macs.

Astronauts on the International Space Station see 16 more sunrises and sunsets each day.

That’s because the station travels at about 17,500 miles per hour, completing a full orbit of Earth every 90 minutes (1 hour 30 minutes).

On the space station, there was a part of Asia where we would always see the pollution.

 

The best view aboard the station is froImage result for iss diagramm the seven-window.

In order to move from one part of the space station to another, astronauts need to push off structures which are almost always reachable to propel themselves in the direction they need to go.

After about 5 or 10 minutes, the air currents would move you enough that you’d be able to grab onto the side.”

While astronauts don’t need to sit down in order to relax and watch a movie floating in place would work just as well they tend to do it anyway.

We would all strap ourselves down to the floor with our bungees so that we were sitting or lying back.

There’s just something uncomfortable about watching a movie in an upright position  they still don’t eat popcorn in space and that would be a disaster.

The first module launched was back on Nov. 20, 1998 at 1:40am.

The ISS travels an equivalent distance to the Moon and back in about a day.  Image result for ISS .

The ISS has 32,333 cubic feet of pressurized volume and weighs 930,000 pounds.

The U.S. solar array surface area is 38,400 square feet (.88 acre) – large enough to cover eight basketball courts (94 ft x 50 ft x 8 = 37,600 sq ft).

Inside the ISS, there are 2 bathrooms, a gym and 360-degree view bay window.

The International Space Station can be seen from Earth with the naked eye, and is the largest artificial satellite that has ever orbited Earth.
