Fun Facts That Will Amaze You

I’m so glad you are enjoying Fun Facts. I learn something new each week, even if it’s weird. I love hearing your comments! 

Contrary to popular belief, it’s really, really hard to see the Great Wall of China from space, particularly with the naked eye. (

The first footprints on the moon will remain there for a million years. (

Days on Venus are longer than years. Due to its slow axis rotation, it takes 243 Earth days to spin once; but it only takes 225 Earth days to go around the sun. (

Humans could never “land” on Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus or Neptune because they are made of gas and have no solid surface. (

  1. I love these little tidbits of interesting info. I knew there was a lot gas on Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune, but thought there was some kind of solid core. I just read that Jupiter also contains liquid. So strange and fascinatingly different! “Footprints on the moon will remain there for a million years.” I hope no one messed them up.
