“When you dream, one portion of your brain creates the story, while another part witnesses the events and is really shocked by the plot twists.”

“Voyager 1 has been traveling >30,000 mph for 43 years and it’s only 20 light-hours away.”

“Dinosaurs lived on the other side of the galaxy from where we are now”

“The time period in which dinosaurs lived is so vast, there were dinosaur fossils when dinosaurs were still alive.”

“If you put 1 of every animal in a bag and then pick one out you have a 1/5 chance in picking a beetle”

“Approximately 99.85% of all the mass in the solar system is concentrated in The Sun.”

“There are 8 times as many atoms in a teaspoonful of water as there are teaspoonfuls of water in the Atlantic ocean”

“How much empty space there is in atoms. Like how the f@#k I’m a solid object, I’ll never understand.”

“Slime molds don’t have brains or nervous systems but somehow retain information and use it to make decisions. Even more crazy is that they can fuse with another individual and share the information.”

“You can fit all the planets (Pluto included) between the Earth & Moon”

“The size of animals still blows my mind. You can read about how a manta ray is 23 feet long and 3 tons but it doesn’t really hit you until you realize that’s heavier than most cars”

“The human body has at least 150 billion neurons.”

“If the distance between the earth and the sun were the thickness of a dime, the next closest star would be ten miles away.”

The experiment shows that both halves can answer questions independently of each other, have separate opinions/preferences, form memories independently. Basically suggesting that there are two minds in the brain. That just blows my mind(s).”

“Without the development of genuinely sci-fi travel technology like wormholes or hyperspace (which may not even be possible) 99.99+% of the universe will be forever locked off from us.

Because of cosmic expansion, the various galactic clusters are moving away from our local cluster faster than we could ever catch up to them.”

“The wow signal came from a planet/bit in space 17,000 light-years away. It emitted a signal 30x stronger than anything we can make today.

It lasted for an entire 71 seconds, was on 1444Hz (frequency of hydrogen, most abundant thing in the universe) and we couldn’t find the signal again after pointing to the same spot.”
