    Today we're going to focus on education and learn more about space and space facts that you probably didn't know about! As has been famously said, space is the final frontier. The greatest of unknowns, space is far vaster than we can comprehend, and filled with phenomenon we barely understand. While we've been watching the heavens in awe for millennia, space exploration and discovery only began in earnest in the mid 20th century. Yet even what are no doubt our primitive findings still point at a universe more incredible than we ever thought. Hello and welcome to another episode of The Infographics Show - today we're taking a look at 50 incredible facts about space!

                                                        This video is 100% bullcrap. It is based on pseudoscience, misinterpretation, faulty conclusions, and outright fraud. It was proven in 1887 via precision scientific instrumentation that the earth does not move. This finding prompted a quarter century of hand-wringing within the scientific community regarding this most disturbing finding. It was not until a low-level clerk who was unable to find employment in a real scientific field came up with the most astounding insult to reason and common sense ever foisted upon the human race; the theories of general and special relativity. His theories, drawn from Kabbalistic dogma and therefore also from ancient Babylonian mysticism, has never been proven and actually defies actual science by simply asserting that its basic laws of physics are not laws. His entire house of cards is nothing but mathematical calculations completely devoid of scientific proof. Math is not science, its a language, and as with all language, it can and routinely is used to LIE. It's fine with me if you choose to believe this load of pig dung and substitute it for bona fide science, but you will rue the day you ignored these words and lost everything in exchange for nothing. Cryptic? Yah but if you meat heads can't even trust your own science to discover laws that are laws then how can I explain the real weighty concepts to you?
