What comes to your mind when you hear the word “Space”?

The Sun, the moon, the planets? The vast universe with its stars and galaxies? Nasa?

Shrouded in intrigue and mystery, the dark expanses of space have always enthralled humanity. However, the more we learn about space, the more we explore, the more we unravel, the less we know.

In spite of all the technological advances, our minds are still filled with umpteen apprehensions. Every single time, the very mention of the word “space” evokes awe, amazement, and truckloads of questions.

So, what are those space-related questions that still have us humans in thrall? Which space-related questions are asked the most often?

We ventured to answer this question by using our Free Keyword Research Tool.

Within a few seconds and in a matter of few clicks, we had with us a list of more than 350 most asked space-related questions on Google, which we are happy to share with our fellow humans.

Just note that the values under the ‘Global Monthly Search’ column are monthly averages calculated using the data collected over the last 6 months.
