Since the beginning of Conscious Life, our Cosmos, Stars, Universe – have been the object of deep, reflective questions. What are does shiny points? How far away does our Sky extend to? Many curious humans, philosophers, researchers have tried to grasp the deeper meaning of our Universe.
Now that we have access to Ancient Wisdom and thanks to advanced technology, we now understand the physics and spirituality of our Universe deeper.
Facts about our Universe
Universe means Uni – One & Verse- Song. One Song.
Space is silent – as there is no atmosphere in space, sound has no medium or way to travel. However, certain waves can travel through neutral atmosphere, thus are used to stay in communication while in space.
Light travels at around 300,000 kilometers per second, one light-year is approx. 9.5 trillion kilometers.
Scientists and astronomers estimate between 200-400 billion stars in our Galaxy, the Milky Way. Researches assess that are billions, trillions galaxies in our Universe, and each galaxies account for billions, trillions of stars – so, there are truly an infinite number of stars in our Universe. Modern science also has the theory of multiverse-s.
Scientist estimate that our Solar system is 4.6 billion years old.
The Andromeda Galaxy and our galaxy are going to collide at one point – estimated 3.75 billion years from Now – from this encounter, a giant elliptical galaxy will take form.
Science proves that Every body (from a small particle to the greatest stars) attracts every other body in proportion to its mass, and inversely in accordance with the distance. Thus, celestial movements affect every living and non-living things on Earth, including us humans. Although that effect is on a minor scale to be physically felt and measured, it remains a a fact.
Astronomers have found a massive water vapor cloud which approximately contains 140 trillion times the mass of water in the Earth’s oceans – location around 10 billion light years from where we are – making it the largest discovery of water ever found.
Earth is the third planet distanced from Our Sun and was formed approximately 4.54 billion years ago. As of today’s Modern Science it is the only known planet to support sentient life. As of Ancient Wisdom, it is one of the infinity of planets that creates and support Life.
|Equatorial Diameter:||12,756 km|
|Polar Diameter:||12,714 km|
|Mass:||5.97 x 10^24 kg|
Our Sun is the star at the center of our solar system and is responsible for the Earth’s and planets climate and weather. The Sun is an almost perfect sphere with a difference of just 10km in diameter between the poles and the equator.
Our Sun is composed of three quarters hydrogen – and – helium for most of its remaining mass. Our Sun accounts for 99.86% of the mass in our solar system (mass of around 330,000 times that of our Earth).
The light from our Sun takes just over eight minutes to reach Earth. When we look at the Sun.
Our Sun gives Earth more energy in an hour than all our planet’s use in a year hence one of the reasons to use solar energy.
|Age:||4.6 Billion Years|
|Type:||Yellow Dwarf (G2V)|
|Equatorial Circumference||4,370,005.6 km|
|Mass:||1.99 × 10^30 kg (333,060 Earths)|
|Surface Temperature:||5,500 °C|
- Outer Truth doesn’t always correspond to Inner the Truth : The temperature on the surface of the Sun is close to 5,600 degrees Celsius, whereas at it’s core, temperature reaches 15,000,000 degrees Celsius.
- What gave us Life, has also the potential to take it away from us :
When all the Hydrogen in our Sun has been burned, our Sun will burn Helium for about 130 million more years, during which time it will expand and engulf Mercury, Venus and our Earth. By then, our Sun would become a red giant.
- Light is in constant movement :
With an average distance of 150 million kilometers from Earth and with light travelling at 300,000 kilometers per second, dividing one by the other gives us an approximate time of 500 seconds – 8 minutes and 20 seconds.
- Everything Physical is bond to Transformation – Life and Death : Our Sun is middle-aged – approximately 4.5 billion years old, our Sun has already burned off about half of its store of Hydrogen. It has enough left to continue to burn Hydrogen for approximately another 5 billion years.
Our Moon is the Earth’s only natural satellite and was formed 4.6 billion years ago around some 30–50 million years after the formation of the solar sys tem. The Moon is in synchronous rotation with Earth meaning the same side is always facing the Earth.
|Mass:||7.35 × 10^22 kg (0.01 Earths)|
|Orbit Distance:||384,400 km|
|Orbit Period:||27.3 days|
|Surface Temperature:||-233 to 123 °C|
- The Moon has no atmosphere.
This means that the surface of the Moon is unprotected from cosmic rays, meteorites and solar winds, and has huge temperature variations. The lack of atmosphere means no sound can be heard on the Moon, and the sky always appears black.
- Water on Earth is affected by gravity pulls of our Earth, Moon and Sun.
The Moon has gravity of its own, which pulls the oceans (and us) towards it. The Moon’s gravitational pull on us is much weaker than Earth’s, so we don’t really notice it, but we can see the Moon’s effect on the liquid water of the oceans. The oceans are pulled towards the Moon’s gravity slightly, causing a bulge or high tide on the side of the Earth closest to the Moon. The Moon has the most effect on the tides, but it’s not the only factor that affects them. The Sun and the Earth can also affect the tides. There are two bulges in the Earth due to the gravitational pull that the Moon exerts; one on the side facing the Moon, and the other on the opposite side that faces away from the Moon, The bulges move around the oceans as the Earth rotates, causing high and low tides around the globe.
- All cosmic bodies (planets), as they have a mass therefore a gravitational pull towards them, affects everything on Earth. The bigger we are, the more easily this effect can be detected. There is really only one thing large enough on the Earth where this effect can be detected with the naked eye: the oceans.
A constellation is a group of stars that form a symbolic shape when viewed from Earth. These pattern often represents animals, mythological creatures, humans, gods, objects and much more.H
There are 88 officially recognized constellations in our sky. This includes 48 ancient constellations listed by the Greek astronomer Ptolemy as well as 40 new constellations.
Orion constellation is one of the brightest, best & oldest known constellations in our sky. It lies on the celestial equator.
Orion has been known since ancient times and represents
the mythical hunter Orion, son of the sea god Poseidon and the Cretan princess Euryale. It is one of the oldest constellations known, also associated with the Sumerian myth of Gilgamesh.
The constellation Orion contains two of the ten brightest stars in the sky – Rigel (Beta Orionis) and Betelgeuse (Alpha Orionis.
Orion’s Belt: Alnitak, Alnilam, and Mintaka, are the stars from east to west (left to right). These three blue supergiant stars are hotter and greater than our Sun. They lie about 1,500 light-years away.
The Pleiades is an open cluster consisting of hundreds, if not thousands of stars at a distance of around 400 light-years from Earth, in the constellation Taurus. They are also known as “The Seven Sisters”, or the astronomical designations M45.
The Pleiades have fascinated many Ancient cultures around our World, and is mentioned in the Iliad, the Odyssey, the Bible the Quran as well as other texts. The Aztecs and Maoris based their calendars and years thanks to them :
for Aztecs : the Pleiades’ rising in the east before dawn marked the beginning of their year. — for Maoris : The heliacal rising of the cluster in June marked the beginning of the year.
Southern Cross :
The Southern Cross is one of the most familiar star pattern in the southern hemisphere.
It is composed of five stars forming the shape of a cross, and is notable for containing two bright stars, Acrux and Gacrux, which point the way to the Southern Celestial Pole.
The Southern Cross has significance in a number of cultures in the southern latitudes, notably Egyptian, Incan, Aborigines,..
Andromeda is one of the Greek constellations. It was named after Andromeda, the daughter of Cassiopeia and Cepheus in Greek mythology, who was chained and left for the sea monster Cetus to eat, and then saved by Perseus.
Cassiopeia constellation represents the boastful queen Cassiopeia, wife of Cepheus and mother of Andromeda in Greek mythology.
Hercules constellation was named after Heracles, the legendary hero from Greek mythology. It is one of the oldest constellations in the sky, dating back to Sumerian times.
Pegasus represents the white winged horse from Greek mythology.
Centaurus constellation represents the half-man, half-horse hybrid creature from Greek mythology. It is usually associated with Chiron, the wise centaur who mentored Heracles, Achilles, Theseus, Jason, and other Heroes.
Other Cosmos Facts :
Venus is the hottest planet in our solar system and has an average surface temperature of 450° C .
We can fit 108 Earth’s linearly across our Sun. The distance between Earth and Sun is 108 Earths.
We can fit 108 moon across our Earth.
