Space is an absolutely crazy place. The cosmos is a lot stranger than we give it credit for. And some of the most exciting things were found right in our own solar system. These are 10 Extraordinary Things ever discovered in space!!!

1. The Unicorn

In 1764, Charles Messier first discovered the Trifid Nebula, located in the sagittarius constellation. The Hubble telescope was recently able to take close-up images of the Nebula, a part of which strikingly resembles a Unicorn. This phenomena can partly be attribute to the psychological process of pareidolia. A horn and a streaming mane can also be spotted which brings to mind an image of a floating unicorn in space. 

2. Hidden Mickey

The Hidden Mickey Mouse image has been one of the most outlandish sightings in space that was spotted on the surface of Mercury. Two smaller craters sit atop a larger crater rendering an appearance of the famous image. It is located on the South right side of the planet to the Northwest end. The Mickey symbol is typically used by Disney’s animators and imagineers to watermark movies and many random spots in their theme parks.

3. A Cloud of Booze

The Sagittarius B2 nebulus floating near the center of our galaxy is known to be composed of alcohol in an order of billion litres. Its detected chemical composition indicates that it possess a rum-like odor. Since alcohol is an organic compound, its presence in the discovered nebulus may give clues to life in other galaxies.

4. White Hole

A white hole is deemed to be converse of a black hole. A black hole is an invisible region in space that pulls in light and everything in its periphery. White holes are considered to have the reverse properties where “mass is squeezed into a point of infinite density” where light escapes from but never go back to. Quoted as “the invisible point of no return” by the German Physicist Karl Schwarzchild in 1916. A black hole may follow the analogy of a one-way entrance; for a white hole, it’s an exit-only.

5. The Diamond Planet

A planet named 55 Cancri e, is twice the size of Earth but has eight times its mass. Estimated to be 40 light-years away, it is located in the northern constellation Cancer. Its primary composition is graphite and other silicates with a third of the planet made of Diamond.

6. A Cold Star

The concept of stars usually invokes an image of burning hot spheres but a recently discovered brown dwarf, a star that doesn’t radiate light and may resemble a planet, appears to be the coldest of its kind to be discovered. While these star types are not traceable in the visible spectrum, infrared telescopes like WISE can pick up its faint glow. It’s temperature is recorded to be around (-48C to -13C/ -54F to 9F). It may also be one of the least massive brown dwarfs ever found, its mass being at 3-10 times that of Jupiter. 

7. Magnifying Glasses

One of the least understood of the four fundamental forces is gravity, which can be used as a powerful tool capable of even bending light. This phenomena is called gravitational lensing which can turn light into large magnifying glasses. This lens would enable researchers to better investigate other parts of the galaxy. 

8. Burning Ice

This is truly a case of stranger than fiction where an ice planet that exists over a temperature of 439 degree Celsius. The strange planet is named gliese 432B belonging to the gliese solar system. Many have hypothesized as to the possible causes for its form and structure.

9. Pillars of Creation

The Iconic Pillars of Creation contains three gigantic pillars of cold gas radiating in sharp ultraviolet light from a cluster of young, massive stars in a small region of the Eagle Nebula, located about 7000 light years from Earth. The Hubble telescope had revisited these famous pillars providing a sharper view which was photographed in near-infrared and visible light.

10. Giant Blob

This primordial blob named Himiko, was one of the many massive objects found in the early universe. It is believed to be created about 800 million years ago, and is estimated to be located about 12.9 billion light years away. It mostly consists of gases and its study has given researchers some insights into the early years of the universe.
