The virgin galactic spacecraft is a shuttle that allows people to be able to feel no gravity from outer space. For one ride, it would cost around about 200,000 to 250,000 dollars. Virgin Galactic actually started out as Virgin airlines, owned by Richard Branson. He then started thinking about Making a spaceship to go in to outer space.



There are more than 50,000 people working for virgin galactic company. There are more than 50 countries that have a virgin galactic airport in it.
SOME PEOPLE HAVE SAID THAT ALIENS EXIST. FOR THERE TO BE ALIENS (IF THEY ARE OUT THERE) THERE HAS TO BE PLANETS AND SUNS (STARS.) PEOPLE HAVE SEEN A LOT OF DIFFERENT STARS WITH THE HUBBLE AND SUPER-GIGANTIC TELESCOPES. OUR SUN IS ABOUT 696,000 KM IN DIAMETER. WE ARE ABOUT 6371 KM IN DIAMETER. THAT MEANS THAT WE GO INTO THE SUN AROUND ABOUT 102 TIMES. WE HAVE RECORDED STARS, LIKE SIRIUS A, POLLUX AND HEAPS MORE. BUT THE BIGGEST STAR THAT WE HAVE RECORDED IS THE VY CANIS MAJORIS, WHICH HAS A DIAMETER OF 2,800,000,000 KM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HERE IS A LINK FOR THE PLANET SIZE COMPARISON.
THE SUN TO VY CANIS MAJORIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And that is only a tiny, tiny dot to the universe. all the other dots you see in the sky are either stars or suns. quite impressive!

The Hubble space telescope is the best man-made telescope to mankind.  It can  track to up to 2 billion miles into the universe. When It was first launched into space, the  photos that were coming back were all blurry, and the scientists didn't know what was happening. After a while, they found that the lens were a 1/50th of a millimeter out of alignment, and that was why  they were all blurry. Astronausts went up there too fix it and it has been up there ever since 1950's

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and most powerful particle collider, the largest, most complex experiment ever built, and the largest single machine in the world. It was built by the European Organisation for nuclear research (CERN) between 1998 and 2008 in collaboration with over 10,000 scientists and engineers from over 100 countries, as well as hundreds of universities and laboratories. It lies in a tunnel 27 kilometers (17 mi) in circumference, as deep as 175  meters (574 ft) beneath the France-Switzerland border near Geneva, Switzerland. Its first research run took place from 30 March 2010 to 13 February 2013.

They are trying to replicate the big bang by spinning particles around the tube at around 299.8 million meters per second completing 11,245 laps of this ring every second. This is equivalent to travelling around the circumference of the Earth seven and a half times in one second. Wow!

A plant first starts of as a seed, which then fall's to the ground. After sunlight, food and water, the seed then becomes a flower, making pollen for the bees, and is a beautiful gift or a nice thing to put on your ledge. the flower then drops its seeds in it and they fall to the ground. The plant eventually dies, but the seeds, with sunlight, food and water, creating a new flower, starts the whole cycle again.
