Science is everything. In this world, unbelievable things are happening around us. Behind everything, there is a role of science. And, everyone is willing to know about the role of science behind those unbelievable things. In this article, we have listed the top 10 science facts with an explanation. If you have any doubt about the top 10 science facts just comment below.

In this post, you will find different random facts related to diamond rain, the journey duration of photon light rays, trapping the laser, the smell of space, and many more interesting science facts mentioned below. Let’s dive into the top 10 science facts that nobody knows. For more content go visit our website intofacts

1. Weight Of The Clouds

top 10 science facts-intofacts

The average weight of the clouds is equal to the weight of 100 elephants. The volume of the cloud is bigger than the weight of the cloud. Initially, millions of small water particles are stored in the clouds, and the total weight is distributed among small water particles. Millions of water particles need together to form a fine raindrop. So, the gravitation pull is neglected until those particles formed as raindrops.

2. Does Light Take 40,000 Years To Travel…? 

top 10 science facts-intofacts

A photon takes 40,000 years to travel from the sun’s core to its surface and light takes 8 minutes to travel from the sun to earth. How???.

Because The density at the core of the sun is very high. Due to the higher denser property, the photon cannot travel in a particular fixed path. The photon at the sun’s core travels by rebounding process which means one photon gets absorbed by another photon and emits a new one. This emitting process continued repeatedly till the photon reached the less dense photosphere and it takes 40,000 years. The photon traveling path is irregular. When a photon reaches a less dense photosphere photon accelerates its speed rapidly and travels with a fixed path. After reaching into a vacuum, the density at the vacuum is very low and the photon gets light speed and takes 8 mins to reach the earth.

shortly, the distance between the core of the sun to its surface is 432474.35 miles and light takes 40,000 years to cover it. And, the distance between the sun and earth is 91.40 million miles and light takes 8 minutes to reach.

3. 1 Day On Venus

top 10 science facts-intofacts

One day on earth is equal to 24 hours. One day on planet venus equals 243 earth days, meaning a day on venus consists of 5832 hours. And, The year on venus takes 225 earth days, wondering how…?

A day on planet venus is longer than a year on venus, because of its slow self-orbit rotation the day duration takes longer.

4. Glass Or Plastic Which Will Decompose First…?

top 10 science facts-intofacts

Plastic takes 450 years and glass takes 4000-5000 years to decompose. The decomposers spend more time decomposing plastic and glass. Because glass and plastic contain carbon, the decomposing process takes more time for carbon-made elements.

5. Shrinking The Sun

top 10 science facts-intofacts

If we shrink our sun to 1 inch the distance between our nearest star would decrease. If it happens, are you willing to know what is the distance between our nearest star system to our solar system after shrinking our sun to 1 inch? Alright, let’s do some math.

Our nearest star system is Alpha Centauri which is 4.22 light-years (24984092897978.723 miles) far from our star system. The diameter of our sun is 864938 miles.

Let. Distance/Diameter=24984092897978.723/864938=28885414.8 times

Consider the size of the sun is 1 inch

therefore.. 1×28885414.8=28885414.8 inches

=455 Miles or 735 KM

If we shrink the size of the sun to 1 inch then our nearest star system Alpha Centauri is 735 km far from us.

6. Could We Trap The Laser…? 

top 10 science facts-intofacts

We all knew a laser can pass through reflective mediums like glass and water. But, did you know that laser would get trapped in a particular medium? We can trap the laser in water, want to know how?

Whenever a laser passes through water each light ray touches the boundary of the medium and reflects back into the medium. This reflection process runs continuously. This phenomenon is called total internal reflection.

7. The Odor Of The Space

smell of space

Astronauts who had spacewalks said about the odor of space. During removal, they felt a stinky smell coming out from space suits. Most of the astronauts said odor from their suits after having spacewalks it’s very stinky and gross.

8. Diamond Rain In Gas Giant Planets

diamond rain

Do you love soaking in rain? But, on this planet, you can shower with diamonds. Our beloved scientists said, the planets Uranus and Neptune have the probability that shall have diamond rains. If it is true then how it works??

Well, the planets Uranus and Neptune are gas giants, meaning there is no land covered with gasses.

Gasses like Hydrogen and Carbon are present in the planet’s atmosphere and get squeezed by huge pressure. Many of you know that diamonds come from carbon under high pressure. This atmosphere is present in Uranus and Neptune planets. As result, The diamond Shower. What are you waiting for, get ready with your spacecraft we are going to have a shower:).

9. Tongue Prints

tongue prints

Have you ever heard about tongue prints? We all know fingerprints are not similar to anyone around the world we consider it is unique. But, a case study said tongue has unique prints compared to fingerprints and we can easily identify a person by using tongue prints. I think this would very helpful for forensics.

10. A Hole To Earth

a hole to earthWhen I was a child I had a thought what if we dig a hole straight into the earth and jump into it, how long it takes to reach another side? Did you have the same doubt as me?

If we made a hole straight into the earth and jump into it to say hi to our friend who is at another end of the hole, It takes 42 minutes and 12 seconds. Your friend needs to wait for a long time lol.
