Space trivia for kids
I really like learning about space, and I watch Dr. Binocs on YouTube to learn more. Here are some fascinating space facts that I want to share with you.
1) Stars are formed from clouds of gas and dust called nebulae.
2) The largest known black hole is Ton 618. It’s about 11 times larger than our entire solar system
3) The largest star we know of in our solar system is UY Scuti. It’s so big that it could potentially engulf about half of the distance between the Earth and Mars if it were placed at the center of our solar system.
4) Earth is estimated to be around 4.5 billion years old. Scientists use radiometric dating of rocks and minerals to determine this age, studying Earth’s geological history to understand its formation and evolution over billions of years.
