in Mask of Light, Onua is the only Toa to not use his tools.

 

Also, in the credits, it says, "No Rahi were harmed in the making of this film." in the Matoran Language.

Space facts are the best kind of facts .

 

A black hole with the same mass and gravity as Earth would be under 2 inches across.

Every second the sun converts 700 million tons of hydrogen into helium.

Corot 7-B is an exoplanet that rains rocks. At 2000 degrees, the silicon, iron+titanium vaporizes, cools down and rains.

There is also an exoplanet 4000 light years away (called PSR J1719-1438 A )with a surface made of diamond.

 

Maybe I could afford the platinum mask with that planet. :D

Space facts? I got a few.

 

Black holes actually shine. "Virtual particles" (particles that constantly pop in and out of existence) are created at the event horizon, and before the two counterparts can destroy each other, the black hole consumes one while the other escapes. This is called Hawking Radiation, and the smaller the black hole is, the more it emits.

 

"Spaghettification" Is the process in which a black hole, or other massive body, uses tidal forces to stretch out anything that comes near it. It can also be called the "noodle effect."

 

The sun is powered by quantum tunneling. Classically, the sun should not have the energy it takes to fuse two atoms together. However, every now and then, an atom randomly shows up in a place it shouldn't be able to get to, allowing it to fuse. Thank quantum mechanics for the stars!

Hyper velocity stars are stars shooting at 2 million miles per hour through space.

According to some models of cosmology, there an infinite number of universes.

Over 500 planets have been found that aren't part of a solar system.

There is a planet called Wasp-12B that only has a 1 day orbit around it's parent star. It is so close that matter is burned off the planet by the star.

Even though we have a very small understanding of dark matter and dark energy, we know that they make up the majority of out universe. The part of our universe made of the matter and energy we know well (atoms, light, etc.) only contributes to 5% of all the matter and energy in the universe.

The leading contender for what dark matter is made of is the "WIMP", or "weakly interacting massive particle".

While the multiverse theory states that there are an infinite number of universes, the most widely accepted theory, supersymmetry, does not. The multiverse theory claims that the world is chaotic by nature, and supersymmetry claims that it is orderly by nature.

If the multiverse theory is true, there is a parallel universe where it isn't.

Not true. The only thing that would vary from universe to universe are constants such as the cosmological constant. These universes exist collectively in one large "multiverse," hence the name.

If the multiverse theory is correct, then yes. The multiverse theory says that anything that can happen, does happen. But the majority of the multiverse would just be chaotic and lethal gibberish.

Richard Wagner, despite composing multiple groundbreaking operas in the late Romantic era and thus setting the stage for the avant-garde classical music of the early twentieth century, was a real jerk. He was so awful that even Nietzsche had a problem with him. When Friedrich Nietzsche -- the man who believed that if you were in a position to dominate and assert your will over others, you had not only the right, but the obligation, to do so -- thinks you've gone too far. you know you've gone too far.

This is similar to the part in Mass Effect 3 in which Tali removes her mask. There is another mask underneath it.

 

The use of the phrase "mad as a hatter" to describe someone as being insane comes from the use of mercury in the making of felt hats in the 18th and 19th centuries. People who worked in hat factories were often exposed to mercury, and over time, they would develop a case of mercury poisoning. This caused dementia (called mad hatter's disease or mad hatter's syndrome).

Tres 2-B is a planet blacker than coal. Reflecting less than 1% of the light that hits it, it is the darkest exoplanet known.

NASA's spacesuit costs about $12 million to make. Without one you would die within 2 minutes exposed to the vacuum of space.

NASA has also packed duck tape on every shuttle mission since 1981.

In 4 billion years the Milky Way galaxy will collide with the Andromeda galaxy. At this same time, the Sun will have entered the red giant phase of it's life, destroying the inner solar system.

Light warps around heavy objects. During a solar eclipse, you can actually see the stars behind the Sun.

 

Because of Einstein’s theory of general relativity, time moves slower for things near heavy objects. This means that the clocks inside GPS satellites tick slightly faster than clocks do here on Earth.

 

Rods, a type of photoreceptor in your eyes, work well in low light but do not respond to color. This is why we can only see in black and white when we are in the dark.

 

There is an unbarred spiral galaxy 28 million light-years away named the Sombrero Galaxy.

 

Dark matter is an invisible yet massive form of matter that holds galaxies together. What dark matter exactly is, however, is unknown.

 

Nothing can travel through space faster than the speed of light. However, space itself can stretch and expand with no set speed limit.

IC-1101 is an elliptical galaxy. It is the largest galaxy known. 

It would take us about 19,000 years with our current tech to reach Alpha Centauri, about 4.37 light years away.

If 2 pieces of the same type of metal touch each other in space, they will become permanently fused together.

The surface of Mars is red because it is covered in iron oxide (rust).
