A Water Reservoir
With 140 trillion times the amount of water held in the Earth’s oceans, this cloud of H2O gas is over 12 billion light years away near a black hole.

The Diamond Planet
55 Cancri e is an entire planet made out of diamond. Take that Bill Gates.


2 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

The Planet of Burning Ice
Although it’s 439 degrees celcius on Gliese 436 b, it’s watery surface doesn’t evaporate. Instead, the molecules pull together to form something known as “hot ice”.


3 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Sagittarius
Consisting of ethyl formate, this is the same gas that gives raspberries their taste and rum its smell. Just in case you were wondering what the center of our galaxy smells like…


4 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Castor System
With six stars orbiting around a central mass, this system is over 54 times as bright as our sun.


5 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Gliese 581 c
Remember the planet of burning ice? Well this one is its neighbor and scientists say that it is the most likely candidate for future colonization. It doesn’t spin so the bright side is super hot and the dark side is freezing cold but in between there is a small strip of temperate territory.




6 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Hypervelocity Stars
Yes, there are actually stars pummeling through space at trillions of miles per hour.


7 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

A Massive Electric Current
Emanating from a nearby black hole, this current is over 1.5 times the size of the Milky Way.


8 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Himiko Cloud
Supposedly one of the largest objects in the known universe, it’s over half the size of the Milky Way.


9 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Large Quasar Group
Although Himiki is huge, the LGQ is ever bigger. It’s forty thousand times larger than our galaxy and even breaks some standard laws of physics.


10 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Gravitational Lensing
What you are looking at is actually a blue star directly behind a yellow star. Light is just being bent so the blue star gets warped.


11 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

A Unicorn
Ok, not really, but the Trifid Nebula certainly bares a resemblance.


12 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Mickey Mouse
And that would be the mouse carved into the side of Mercury.


13 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

A Cold Star
Although we’re used to stars being blazing hot, scientists recently found a star that is only 89 degrees fahrenheit.


14 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

A Star 1,500 Times The Size Of The Sun
If you thought the sun was big, allow us to introduce VY Canis Majoris.


15 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

New Found Blob
At 200 million light years across this blob from the other side of the universe gives the Large Quasar Group a run for its money.


16 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Pillars of Creation
It’s basically a huge nursery for stars that’s hundreds of millions of light years across.


17 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Magnetars
Spinning out of control these stars could destroy your credit card with their magnetic field from hundreds of millions of miles aways.


18 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Neutrinos
If you were to hold up a dime for a second, that would be long enough for about 150 billion tiny, massless neutrinos to go plummeting through it.


19 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Dark Matter
If you piled up all the visible universe it would account for only 5% of the total mass. At least 27% more consists of invisible “dark matter”


20 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Dark Energy
To really make things interesting, the remaining 68% is something known as dark energy, and whatever it is it’s pushing the universe apart at top speed.


21 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Planets
Although it may sound weird because we live on one, there is currently no theory that can fully explain how a bunch of gas and dust surrounding a star comes together to form a planet, especially a rocky one.


22 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Gravity
The weakest and most pervasive force in the universe still has scientists guessing as to its origin.


23 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

Black Hole
Beyond a black hole’s event horizon, or gravitational border, nothing can escape. Not light, not matter, nothing.


24 Unbelievable Things in Space That Actually Exist (25 pics)

White Holes
Supposedly the opposite of black holes, they only exist in theory. The matter goes in one end and out the other. Some say they could be the key to crazy things like time travel.

You'll need to find your science elsewhere. A lot of these aren't true. I.e. #7, "trillions of miles per hour" is faster than the speed of light. #17 - the Pillars of Creation can't be "hundreds of millions of light years across." They are inside the Milky Way galaxy which is only about 100,000 light years across, and there is certainly room left over in here for other things, like us.

#17 Show us a couple of 'new born stars', will you?
#23 Easy - out of nothing it created itself.

And so on . . . .

and on . . . .
