    Good app but I have read many incorrect facts. One of the worst said our galaxy was a few hundred million light years in diameter, its really 100,000. Physics and astrophysics are my hobbies, you can't sneak numerous incorrect facts past me. Granted they're prob just typos but it needs a more dedicated editor. Hire me and you'll gain a vast library of correct and interesting facts lol.
