A Anti-matter is the evil twin of matter. Whenever matter and anti-matter come together a giant explosion occurs bigger than one billion nuclear bombs.
B Black Holes are giant vacuums made of anti- matter. When anything enters a black hole it gets stretched six miles, super heated, and finally explodes.
C Copernicus was the scientist that proved that the earth is not the center of the universe. Also because of his deep belief in science, not religion as their royal rulers did he was killed.
D Dark energy takes up 23% of our universe. It is the force that is expanding our universe today and theoretically in fifty billion years destroy it in the big crunch or the big rip.
E Extrosolar planets are planets that are found beyond our solar system. There have been three hundred extrosolar planets yet discovered, most of which are a lot like Earth!
F Force is an invisible power that is infinite throughout our universe. It was discovered in 1666 by Isaac Newton, force causes anything and everything to happen.
G Galileo Galilei is considered the father of modern astronomy, he invented the first modern telescope in the 1610’s. But for this belief in science which everyone thought was nothing but lies in his time, his people deeply to wanted to kill him. So he gave up science so he wouldn't get slaughtered.
H Halleys comet is the most famous comet. It comes around every 60-61 years. So live up to 2060 or 2061 if you want to see it!
I The International Space Station is the most expensive thing ever built, it cost more than a billion dollars and believe it or not hosted the first space wedding in 2003
J Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system. In fact 1331 earths could fit inside Jupiter. Even if you put all the planets in the solar system together Jupiter will still be bigger.
K The Kuiper Belt is an extremely distant expanse of ice cold space rock some parts of The Kuiper Belt are beyond Pluto's orbit.
L Constellations and many other cosmic objects have Latin names. Latin is an ancient language that was used by Greeks, Romans, many ancient astronomers, and many scientists today use Latin.
M Magellanic clouds are vast expanses of gasses, mostly hydrogen and helium. These clouds weighs much as ten billion suns and shine as bright as two billion suns.
N Neutron stars are extremely dense stars. In fact one TEASPOON of a Neutron Star would weigh ONE BILLION TONS!! They are formed when a large star “dies”. One Neutron star cane have as much matter as our sun, but be only 1000 th of its size. That’s 4 - 6 miles!
O The Oort cloud is the birth place of comets. It is found beyond The Kuiper Belt it is bordering our solar system and has been for billions of years. And any second some comet could come out and strike us, so be careful!
P A Pulsar is a spinning Neutron Star. It spins as fast as a bike tire spun by a hand. While a pulsar spins it admits bursts of radiation a few times a second.
Q A Quasar is the energetic core of an active galaxy. I gets activated when galaxies collide. Quasar is also known as a quasi-stellar object.
R Red shift is the stretching of light from an object such as a galaxy. Because the universe is expanding there a higher level of red shift.
S Space-time is the very fabric of our universe. It consists of the 3 dimensions and one of time. So you could say we have a 4-D universe.
T Titan is one of Saturn’s moons, in fact the biggest. It has a thick atmosphere made of nitrogen & methane and liquid methane on the surface.
U Ultraviolet radiation is electromagnetic radiation. Ultraviolet radiation often comes from stars and Quasars. Its wavelengths are shorter than the blue end of the visible spectrum.
V The Virgo super cluster is the largest cluster of galaxies for millions of light years around. It contains thousands and thousands of galaxies and is going to add on 10,000 in a few billion years because The Local Group is heading there right now.
W White Dwarf stars are tiny, immensely dense stars that are left over after stars like our sun die. Most white dwarfs are Earth’s size but some can be even smaller! Only one teaspoon of white dwarf would weigh like train locomotive!
X X-rays are electromagnetic wavelengths of radiation. X-rays were discovered in 1895 by Wilhelm Rontgen. And if you ever come close to a Quasar you might just see your bones stick out.
Y Yuri Gagarin was a Russian cosmonaut. On April 12 th 1961 he became the first person to go into outer space. (GO RUSSIA!) Russia even made April 12 th a holiday because of this accomplishment!
Z The Zodiac is 12 constellations that always pass the sun. the ancient Greeks made this to mark what symbol you were what constellation was touching the sun at your birth is your symbol. Also the Zodiac constellations don’t exactly mark the months but they're pretty close!
