Herscal tried to have his discovery named Georgian Sidus after King George III. The name Uranus was suggested by astronomer Johann Bode. The name comes from the ancient Greek deity Ouranos.

  6. Did you know if you get sucked into a black hole you will be stretched out like a strand of spaghetti. And also, when a light gets sucked in the light disappears. And any thing gets sucked into turns into the black hole dust.
