Four things you (probably) didn’t know about space

Whether it’s in our own backyard or millions of light-years away, the universe can get pretty weird.

Earth

Earth is usually identified from space as being a pale blue dot, but considering that the number of trees on our planet outnumber the amount of stars in the Milky Way, perhaps we should become the pale blue-green dot. Credit: NASA Earth Observatory/Joshua Stevens; NOAA National

The cosmic microwave background (CMB) is a snapshot of the early universe; it is the oldest light we can see. This light has been Doppler shifted into the microwave portion of the spectrum, outside the realm of naked-eye observing. In this image, generated with data from the Planck satellite, different colors represent tiny temperature fluctuations in the universe. Credit: ESA and the Planck Collaboration
