    Thats pretty interesting, so hes like a doctor who guy? How does it work, does he give you astronomy facts/other types of facts in return?

    Heres some facts then

    -closet black hole to earth is 1600 light years away
    -The Sun burns 600 million tons of Hydrogen every second
    -Only 55% of all Americans knows that the Sun is a star.
    -The largest structure found in the universe is the Sloan Great Wall, a super cluster of galaxies 1.37 billion light-years wide.
    -The odds of being killed by falling space debris is 1 in 5 billion.
    -The star Lucy in the constellation Centaurus is a huge cosmic diamond of 10 billion trillion trillion carats.
    -Space is not a complete vacuum, there are about 3 atoms per cubic meter of space
    -Neutron stars are so dense that a teaspoon of them would be equal to the weight of the entire Earth’s population.

    Thank you so much! I'm trying to get him into doctor who, but we randomly decided to sleep under the stars one night at a party and I think we may do the same on Sunday

    There's a nebula called Gomez's Hamburger because it's shaped like a burger (google it)
    not a particularly scientific fact but still interesting.
