Where Does The Sun Rise And Set?
As seasons change and the days go by, one phenomenon remains consistent: the sun’s rising and falling. As the Earth rotates, the sun rises in the east of the sky and sets in the west. The time in which it rises and sets depends on one’s geographic location. People in the Eastern hemisphere will experience the sun rising and setting before people in the Western hemisphere, which results in the world's differing time zones.

How Hot Is The Sun?
The great ball of fire in the sky (or rather, plasma, to be exact) holds the solar system together and provides the heat, energy, and illumination necessary to sustain life on Earth. And yet, the Sun itself is the most overwhelmingly inhospitable environment imaginable. Its core burns hot enough to sustain nuclear fusion, and its "surface," though relatively cool, is still capable of boiling diamonds.

How Many Planets Are In The Milky Way?
The pale blue dot on which we reside is a humble speck within the vast Milky Way - never mind the entire universe! This barred spiral galaxy is a whopping 100,000 light-years across and 1,000 light-years thick. That's a lot of space to survey.

Is The Milky Way Galaxy A Different Shape Than We Thought?
The Milky Way has been an object of fascination for thousands of years. The name of the Milky Way dates back to ancient Greece with a tale between Hera, Zeus and Heracles. While naming the galaxy was easy, getting an idea of its shape has been a challenge. Since our solar system is in the galaxy, scientists cannot get a view outside the galaxy to see its shape properly. However, technology has allowed humans to get a better idea of what the galaxy looks like.

How Many Planets Are There In The Solar System?
Locally, our system that orbits around the Sun is 4.571 billion years old, and the universe itself is 13.7 billion years old; in comparison, Earth is 4.543 billion years old. Each of the planets in our solar system has a unique background, so read on to gain a clearer understanding of their histories and compositions.

Why Isn't Earth Perfectly Round?
Today, we know from satellite photos that the Earth is round. While we might not realize it, this idea is relatively old. Before Columbus's travels, the idea that the Earth is round dates to ancient Greek times. Scholars such as Aristotle believed the Earth was round.

Can We Explain The Beginning Of The Universe?
The study of our universe has fascinated millions of people across human history. Ever since humans first walked the Earth, we have been dwelling on one big question: how did this all come to be? For much of our history, this was explained through various mythological, supernatural, or religious contexts.

Discover the Fascinating Mysteries of How Long a Year is on Each Planet
From the innermost planet, Mercury, to the outermost gas giant, Neptune, one of the most telling characteristics of the planets in our solar system is the differences in their length of years. Depending on how the length of the year is defined, each planet's year varies due to its orbital speed and distance from the sun. Through this article, we will discover just how long a year lasts on each planet in the solar system.
