Space Clouds

Clouds...........................from space

What is a space cloud?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

A molecular (space) cloud is basically a cloud up in the space, and is composed mainly of molecular hydrogen and helium. And a Giant Molecular Cloud is a molecular cloud that is a hundred times the mass of our sun. It’s like about 100,000 suns can fit in. They are so large they reach up to 300 light years in diameter. So the word giant there is an understatement.

What do they do!?

Since this massive cloud has gravity, it will attract meteors, and cosmic rocks from all over the solar system. So it will cause huge chunks of rock and ice to hit the Earth. if they explode it could cause smoke to block the sun which would cause an Ice Age and oxygen shortage.

How is it harmful???!!!?!?!?!?!?

This interstellar cloud could reduce the sun’s orbit until most of the outer planets are sitting alone in space. Dust and gas will penetrate the Earth’s orbit and begin destroying away at the oxygen in our upper atmosphere. The solar wind will no longer provide useful protection from the high-speed electrons and ions going through space and the life on Earth will slowly deteriorate.
