Space. Everything in space is very far away from each other. It's not like it's all super close, Nawh! Man, if you try to travel to the nearest star, you will never make it! like, Even if you started as a tiny baby, you still would never make it to the nearest star.
You look up at night and you see one speck; its not just one star, it might be 1200000 billions of stars! Like, a galaxy! Also, when you look up in the sky, you might just being looking straight at a lot of planets!
Did you know, everything in space is made up of the same atoms as we are?
So, Here something cool. Have you heard of the star named Polaris? Well it's our North star. Get it? North Pole, Polaris, Pole? Well, in about 12000 years, Polaris wont be our north star. it'll be The star Vega! But don't worry, again, that's in about 12000 years. So i wouldn't stand waiting.
The speed of light is super fast. And when i mean fast, i mean hardcore, Rock-hard FAST. When you turn on any source of light like hmmm maybe a flash light, phone, computer Name anything. as soon as you see it touch any surface, it actually takes time traveling there! So, if you look up at night and you see a star, it might actually not be there! it might have died last year and you still see it right? that's cause the light of the star's light you used to see, is still dying out! amazing right??
