Hi<3 I'm currently doing a design project, basically I wanna design a object to inspire user to think more about space exploration! So may I ask , why are you interested in exploring space? How important do you think space exploration is? If you don't like these questions you can just express anything you want lol. Your thought is really valuable to me so thanks A LOT! And of course I'll drop down your blog link as my source. THANKS AGAIN, for being a space lover! x

Wow! :o

Well… I can’t say exactly why I’m interested… My curiosity began when I was 8. I just read something about planets of the Solar System in my school book. I was amazed! But I can’t tell you why. D: Maybe because it was something totally deferent of my young reality, hahaha.

But, now, I think space exploration is important because we can learn a lot. Not just learn science itself, but how to be better humans. Space shows us how small we are, but we are part of this infinity. We are inside the Universe, and the Universe is inside us.

Understanding space is understand ourselves. :)

I hope this helps you. Anything else, just ask. And good lucky with your job!

why do black holes have sizes if theyre all just a singularity???

Nice question!

The size of a black hole does not work like the size of a planet, or a common sphere. This size is defined by its event horizon (“the point of no return”). If something crosses this limit, it will never come back, even light.

The horizon’s radius depends of the black hole’s mass. The more massive the black hole, the larger its radius.

I have a very weird question. If I got it right, Jupiter is gas. But imagine that I can get to Jupiter and stuff and breathe there, can I stand on the planet or not? What would happen? (If the climate and stuff isn't a problem neither)

Hello, friend! Be welcome! And don’t worry, weird questions are important too. :D

Unfortunately, we can’t send probes to Jupiter and confirm that, because they would be destroyed. But, we have evidences, like magnetic field and chemical properties.

Look this:

The atmosphere (beige) liquid hydrogen (green) metallic hydrogen (gray). In the center there may be a solid core (brown) made of heavier elements, like metal and rocks, where, supposedly, you could stand.

Hope this answers your question. :)
