Interesting facts of the amazing Universe
We follow suit from last week’s podcast on the Griffith Observatory and venture deeper into the universe as we know it. Our quest starts with considering the vast age of the universe, its origins, and its construct. The gravitational pull takes us into the specifics of Jupiter, Saturn, the Sun, and our Moon. With some fascinating structures such as black holes, galaxies, pulsars, comets, and moons, there is so many interesting facts and figures that can be shared with your friends and family members. How much debris is circulating in space? Is the Moon really moving away from mother Earth? And, how dense really is a black hole? All the answers to the questions and so many more are here in this week’s Flash Past. Sit back, enjoy, and let your mind venture into the world of the universe as we know it.
