Wonders of the Universe

Wine us. Dine us.
Delight us with a sense of awe.
Delight us with a sense of awe
As we take time to notice
The wonders of the universe.
Wine us. Dine us.
Delight us with a sense of awe.
Delight us with a sense of awe
As we take time to notice
The wonders of the universe.


[Gee whiz facts: better yet, collect your own favorites]

Flight #1
Octopuses have three hearts.
Butterflies can taste with their feet.
A group of parrots is known as a pandemonium.
Polar bears have black skin.

Flight#2
The sun makes up more than 99% of the mass of the solar system.
Almost every element in your body was made in an exploding star.
Each of a tarsier’s eyeballs is as big as its brain.

Flight #3
Beaked whales can hold their breath for over two hours.
The universe might be a hologram.
Dung beetles can use the Milky Way to navigate.
If you cry in space the tears just stick to your face.
Scientists have discovered a planet where it rains glass, sideways.
The world’s oceans contain 20 million tons of gold.
If you multiply the number 111,111,111 by itself, you get the number: 12345678987654321.
You can use a blue whale’s wax earplug to work out its life history.
