15. So where are my brothers in Merry making, beer things has arrived ooo. grin Where are my Viking religionists or Muslims expecting pure booze in heaven, well your hopes should be tickled by this.

Alcohol in space shocked

Astronomers has found there is a massive cosmic cloud of mostly pure ethanol (same thing we drink here) in space.. the alcohol cloud is so massive that it could make more than 400trillion earth pints of beer, that'd be a rain of booze grin the whole cloud is rotating around a young star in the middle just like a cosmic cloud from whence planets form

who knows maybe we just found heaven cheesy

16. Water is one of the most common components of the universe being made from two of the most common elements in the cosmos. Hydrogen and oxygen.

even though countless planets out there has much water liquid or frozen, There is a huge cloud of water discovered afloat in space.

The water is 140trillion times all the waters on earth and surrounds a blackhole.

17. This is a hubble ultra deep field image. it is gotten when the hubble telescope is faced to one pitch dark point of space and left focused on that one spot for days or even weeks.

the results show that the universe was one hell of a large whole. . . Every dot of light you see in the picture is a galaxy.

(Imagine this, just like you see the earth is very big but when compared to the sun the earth becomes very tiny but when compared to the milky way galaxy (our home galaxy) the entire solar system becomes too tiny.

if the solar system was scaled down to the size of an atom, the entire milky way galaxy would be the size of the whole united states of America.

and there are up to 200billion galaxies in the observable universe... imagine how remarkably miniscule we are)

21. A dead star sad the death of massive stars are the most violent explosions known to man, leaves a sad but beautiful enduring view and all the elements produced during their life time scattered in space making it possible for planets like earth to have them (helium, oxygen, hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen, iron) remarkably humans are predominantly made of the top 4 of these elements oxygen, hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen and these elements along side helium are the most commonly distrubuted elements in the cosmos.
