View physicsintheuniverse's Instagram It is common knowledge that the sun is much larger than Earth...but how much larger? 
The Sun is 846,400mi in diameter, compared to the Earth that’s about 109 time’s larger. Weighing about 333,000 times that of planet Earth, when it comes down to it approximately 1,300,000 Earth’s can fit inside the sun.

View physicsintheuniverse's Instagram Pulsars are spherical, compact objects that are about the size of a large city but contain more mass than the sun. Scientists are using pulsars to study extreme states of matter, search for planets beyond Earth's solar system and measure cosmic distances. 
Pulsars radiate two steady, narrow beams of light in opposite directions. Although the light from the beam is steady, pulsars appear to flicker because they also spin. It's the same reason a lighthouse appears to blink when seen by a sailor on the ocean: As the pulsar rotates, the beam of light may sweep across the Earth, then swing out of view, then swing back around again. To an astronomer on the ground, the light goes in and out of view, giving the impression that the pulsar is blinking on and off. The reason a pulsar's light beam spins around like a lighthouse beam is that the pulsar's beam of light is typically not aligned with the pulsar's axis of rotation.
Although most pulsars should have enough self-gravity to spin as fast as 3000 times per second before they split apart, all of the previously discovered millisecond pulsars, of which there are 150 or so, spin slower than 700 Hz.

View physicsintheuniverse's Instagram Neutron stars are one of my favorite things in the universe. They are the byproduct of stars that've gone supernova, with the outer layers stripped away from the explosion, leaving only the core. This core can potentially become a neutron star. They are one of the densest objects in the universe. The stars are generally around the size of a city, however most are 1.4 times the mass of the sun.

View physicsintheuniverse's Instagram Ever heard of a Magnetar? Well you should have!
Magnetars are the byproduct of stars that have gone supernova, generally the core will turn into a neutron star. However, on some occasions, the core can become a Magnetar. 
You may guess from the name that they're especially magnetic: up to 1 quadrillion gauss. That's 1,000 trillion times stronger than the magnetic field you're sitting in right now. That puts magnetars in the No. 1 spot, reigning champions in the universal Strongest Magnetic Field competition. The numbers are there, but it's hard to wrap our brains around them. 
Those fields are strong enough to wreak havoc on their local environments. You know how atoms are made of a positively charged nucleus surrounded by negatively charged electrons? Those charges respond to magnetic fields. Not very much under normal conditions, but this ain't Kansas anymore, is it, Toto? Any unlucky atoms stretch into pencil-thin rods near these magnetars.

It doesn't stop there. With the atoms all screwed up, normal molecular chemistry is just a no-go. Covalent bonds? Ha! And the magnetic fields can drive enormous bursts of high-intensity radiation. So, generally bad business. 
Get too close to one (say, within 1,000 kilometers, or about 600 miles), and the magnetic fields are strong enough to upset not just your bioelectricity — rendering your nerve impulses hilariously useless — but your very molecular structure. In a magnetar's field, you just kind of…dissolve.

View physicsintheuniverse's Instagram Many other planets throughout the universe probably hosted intelligent life long before Earth did. The probability of a civilization developing on a potentially habitable alien planet would have to be less than one in 10 billion trillion — or one part in 10 to the 22nd power — for humanity to be the first technologically advanced species the cosmos has ever known. 
Think of it this way: you’d be considered a pessimist if you imagined the probability of evolving a civilization on a habitable planet was, say, one in a trillion, But even that guess — one chance in a trillion — implies that what has happened here on Earth with humanity has in fact happened about 10 billion other times over cosmic history.

View physicsintheuniverse's Instagram The Theia Collision that occurred when Earth was very young is the reason that the Rotational axis of the earth is not perfectly vertical. 
This in turn, has caused the Earth to develop seasons as the angle of tilt toward the sun alters.

View physicsintheuniverse's Instagram Isn't this a beautiful sunset? Would you believe me if I told you that in this photo the sun is beneath the horizon? 
Since the density of the atmosphere varies at different altitudes, light, and other electromagnetic waves, are refracted (denser air has a higher refractive index). In fact, at the horizon, light is bent about 0.5 degrees, which also happens to be very slightly more than the size of the sun in the sky. So, when you see the sun just ‘touching’ the horizon, it is actually already completely below it.
Atmospheric refraction is zero at the zenith, and increases towards the horizon.

Based on the curvature of spacetime discovered by Einstein in the 1910s, the Spacetime Model extends General Relativity to all components of the universe. It solves up to 50 enigmas of Modern Physics. Therefore, the Spacetime Model may be labelled "Theory of Everything". Moreover, this Theory of Everything is fully compatible with the most recent experimentations.
