Space and Science BS Thread

For anyone that is fascinated by science or space.

Any cool facts to share, news stories, just BS of the sort?

Thought it would be a cool idea for anybody on this site that actually cares about or is interested in space and science

Trailer Truck-Size Asteroid to Buzz Earth Inside Moon's Orbit Today

Quote:
A space rock the size of a tractor-trailer is set to fly harmlessly by Earth today (Oct. 29), zipping between our planet and the moon.

...

The space rock was first observed just a few days ago, on Oct. 25, according to data from JPL. The asteroid's path, illustrated in this video animation, will bring it inside the orbit of the moon, which typically circles Earth from a distance of about 239,000 miles (384,600 kilometers).

...

When it makes its closest approach today at 5:44 p.m. EDT (2144 GMT), asteroid 2013 UV3 will pass 0.7 lunar distances from Earth, or 176,000 miles (283,000 km) away.

1000 exoplanets have been discovered, 12 could be habitable
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-24549384

Quote:
The number of observed exoplanets - worlds circling distant stars - has passed 1,000.

Of these, 12 could be habitable - orbiting at a distance where it is neither "too hot" nor "too cold" for water to be liquid on the surface.

and fun fact:

if you took the most acidic acid in the history of ever, tetrofluoroantimonic acid,
an acid a quintillion times more acidic than battery acid,

and fucked with it by dropping something into it to watch it sizzle

you'd die
everyone around you would die
everyone in the room you're in would die
everyone around the room you're in would die

but it probably wouldnt happen because if brought out into open air, it would explode instantaneously.

also, nobody has this shit in real life

Wondering if anyone has seen the commercials for the upcoming space shuttle challenger TV movie. It has actor William Hurt playing as Feynman. I saw a clip of it and the guy has Feynman down pretty good.

Normally if you want to join two pieces of metal together, you use heat, or some sort of chemical process to do it. However, when metal is in a vacuum (like in space), two different pieces of metal will weld together with no other external force present

Footprints last forever on the surface of the moon. Because the moon does not have wind or water like the Earth, the footprints left by astronauts on its surface will remain unchanged for millions of years

The American flag on the moon is now solid white, due to radiation.

Anyone watch Wonders of the Universe with Brian Cox? Great show!
