Space Science

What is Space??

Before discussing Space we must be familiar with what Space is all about. space is everything in the universe beyond the top of the Earth’s atmosphere – the Moon, where the GPS satellites orbit, Mars, other stars, the Milky Way, black holes, and distant quasars.   In Astronomical Science Space we mean Universe. The universe is the name that we use to describe the collection of all the things that exist in space. The Universe contains billions of galaxies, each containing millions or billions of stars. The space between the stars and galaxies is largely empty. However, even places far from stars and planets contain scattered particles of dust or a few hydrogen atoms per cubic centimeter.
