Space Coloring Pages
What's your space favorite movie? For me, the one that never gets old is the masterpiece of Steven Spielberg, Armageddon. Some of you may disagree with me, but that movie left a deep impression for me. It teaches me that mankind will always have a hope as long as they're united and that sacrifices are always required to achieve big results. Aside from Armageddon, there are also many space movies worth watching like The Martian, Interstellar, and of course Star Wars movie franchise. I've watched all of them. The Martian is awesome, featuring an astronaut left alone in the red planet. Still Interstellar is even more awesome.

Space Fun Facts
- All of space is completely silent. Sound waves need a medium to travel through. Since there is no atmosphere in space, space will always be eerily silent. You may be asking how astronauts can talk to each other in space. Lucky for them, radio waves can travel through space. No problem there, Houston.
- Venus is the hottest planet in our solar system with a surface temperature of over 450 degrees celcius. Saturn isn't the only ringed planet, other gas giants such as Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune also have rings, they are just less obvious. The only planet that rotates on its side like a barrel is Uranus. The only planet that spins backwards relative to the others is Venus.
- Space junk is any human-made object orbiting Earth that no longer serves a useful purpose. Scientists estimate there are about 500,000 pieces of space junk today, including fragments from rockets and satellites, and everyday items like spanners dropped during construction of the International Space Station!
- We basically have no idea how many stars there are in the universe. Right now we use our estimate of how many stars there are in our own galaxy, the Milky Way. We then multiply that number by the best guesstimate of the number of galaxies in the universe. After all that math, NASA can only confidently say that say there all zillions of uncountable stars. A zillion is any uncountable amount.
- The Moon appears to have more craters and scars than Earth because it has a lot less natural activity going on, the Earth is constantly reforming its surface through earthquakes, erosion, rain, wind and plants growing on the surface, while the moon has very little weather to alter its appearance.
- Ancient astronomers once believed the Earth was at the centre of the Universe but now we know that the Sun is at the center of our Solar System and our planets orbit the Sun. The Sun makes up 99.8% of the entire mass of the whole Solar System. One million Earths would be needed to be the same size as the Sun.
