Earth, our home planet, is unlike any other place on the planet. Earth, the third planet from the sun, is the only location in the known universe where existence has been confirmed. It is our solar system’s fifth-largest planet, and the only one confirmed to have liquid water on its surface.
We believe we know everything there is to know about our homeworld, but we are completely incorrect. Scientists have gained a lot of knowledge about the Universe so far, but they say there is still a lot to learn about the earth.
– Swedish scientists believe that Earth collided with the supposed planetary-mass object Theia 4.36 billion years ago, resulting in the creation of Earth’s only permanent natural satellite.
– Mauna Kea is 33,475 feet tall, which is 4,445 feet higher than Mount Everest when measured from base to summit.
– Scientists expect that the continents will coalesce again in 250 to 300 million years, forming Pangaea Ultima, a single supercontinent.
– It hasn’t rained in Antarctica’s McMurdo Dry Valleys in nearly 2 million years. Winds can exceed 200 miles per hour in this region.
– Massachusetts Institute of Technology scientists propose a hypothesis to describe the mass extinction that wiped out nearly 90% of all living species on the planet.
– Despite the fact that American Samoa is just 1,240 miles away from Kiribati’s Line Islands, the two neighbors have a time difference of 25 hours.
– The World Ocean covers 71% of our planet’s surface area. The depth of sunlight-exposed water is no more than 655 feet, leaving the rest of the water permanently dark.
– The oceans and seas contain 97 percent of the world’s water, but it’s salty ocean water that can’t be drunk.
– Researchers say the carvings on the pillars show that a meteor strike approximately 11,000 years ago caused a sudden temperature drop on our planet.
– The Kármán line, which is 62 miles above sea level, is a globally recognized line.
