Space

In Prose on June 22, 2012 at 11:37 am

Space is a vacuum. Space is vast compared to our world Earth. In space there is no oxygen and there are no G-forces and there are no air molecules, which means there’s no sound. Space is so vast that the space between galaxies is light years apart. In other words, space is measured by distance and time. When you observe the nighttime sky, some of the stars that you see actually died out millions of light years ago – the light from the star that has previously died is still traveling. So by the time you see the light of a perished star, it’s million of light years later. Believe it or not you’re actually looking into the past, and that’s just one dimension of space.
