President, teacher, racing driver or astronaut. These are the most common children's answers to the question about their dream profession.

For example, you shouldn't be older than 50 years old, you need a technical degree, you must be in great shape, able to swim well and fit into a spacesuit, which, by the way, costs about $ 12 million.
Even if you don't become an astronaut, thanks to almost six hundred people who have had the opportunity to visit space so far, and advanced photography, you can at least peek into space virtually - through the screen of your TV or tablet. So if you are tempted to explore the infinite universe, pay attention.

You will learn all the details and interesting facts about how an airplane, a car, a rocket, a smartphone, a telescope or a robot were created. Also that beneath them, there are thoughts that trace back to more than thousands of years ago.
Diamond planet, or enormous alcohol cloud
In these documentaries, you'll learn a lot of interesting things. For example, the fact that you can find literally anything in space. For example: Did you know that there's a planet full of diamonds called 55 Cancri e, which has an incalculable value and is twice the diameter of the planet Earth? Or that the Sun is so immensely huge that it can hold a little over a million Earths?
It is also interesting to learn that there is absolute silence in the universe and that the sound has no way to spread there, because there is no atmosphere. All those explosions or shooting sounds in sci-fi movies are just for the effect, in reality you wouldn't hear anything.
Another non-traditional discovery, which you will learn in these documentaries and series, is that after returning from space, you are likely to get a craving for a grilled steak. Several astronauts said that their spacesuit smelled of grilled meat when they returned from space. This is due to the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon, which is formed during the decay of stars, but also when grilling meat on charcoal.
In space, well at the ISS space station anyway, alcohol is not allowed. However, there are more than enough supplies in the surrounding universe. While studying the cosmos, scientists came across an enormous gas cloud made of alcohol, which would be enough to produce 400 quadrillion (quadrillion = 24 zero's) beers. You could also make rum or raspberry schnapps, as ethyl formate has also been found in space, which is responsible for the taste of raspberries and rum.
And last but not least, in the universe you can also find various bizarre things that are unthinkable on planet Earth. Like hot ice, for example. An unusual phenomenon occurs on the exoplanet called Gliese 436 b, which consists of various water elements. The pressure on the planet causes the ice to remain in a solid state. Due to the high surface temperature (approximately 300 ̊C), steam escapes from it and it melts at the same time.
