10 mind-bending facts about the universe

From neutron stars to multiple dimensions to life on other planets, here are cool facts about the universe that might make your brain hurt.

1. The universe contains around 50,000,000,000 galaxies, each of which has between 100,000,000,000 and 1,000,000,000,000 stars.

2. At the speed of light, time stops.

3. Dark matter makes up 83 percent of the matter in the universe, but we can’t see it and we don’t know what it is.

4. Time passes more slowly in orbit around the earth meaning returning astronauts arrive home slightly younger than if they had spent the same amount of time on earth.

5. Atoms are 99.9999999999999999% empty space meaning all the matter making up the entire human race could fit into a sugar cube…

Others Out There?

So many people wonder
if others are out there

With every peal of thunder
into the sky they stare

Just hoping they might see
a space ship from somewhere

Whether or not it be
I really do not care


But it does seem too
conceited for us to say

That God would not do
more creations along the way

Would only two He mold
from little bits of clay

Throughout the universe untold
to walk with Him each day?


Either way’s alright with me
for it’s His choice alone

If He said, “Let it be!”
to some other bits of stone

It still remains a speculation
that the years have grown

But whatever your expectation
God left it as unknown.
