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. (nasa.gov)

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

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. (nasa.gov

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

But you could ice skate on one of Jupiter’s moons, Europa, which is covered in ice. An Axel jump would take you 22 feet in the air! (nasa.gov)

Our modern interpretation of Santa Claus with a red outfit and white beard is due in large part to holiday Coca-Cola ads that began in 1931. (coca-cola.com)

 

Enjoy!

  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.
