INTERESTING INFORMATION ABOUT EARTH

  • The deepest place on Earth is in the Pacific Ocean. Earth’s largest ocean Pacific so that all of the world continents could fit into the Pacific. In Earth it containing more than half of the free water on Earth. The challenger deep in the Mariana Trench is the deepest known point in the earth ocean. In 2010 United States Centre for coastal and ocean mapping measure the depth off the challenge death at 10,994 meters below sea level with an estimated vertical accuracy of 40 meters.

DISTANCE  BETWEEN THE EARTH AND SUN

  • The earth is approximately 93 million miles (150 million kilometers) from the sun at this distance it takes about 8 minutes and 19 seconds from sunlight to reach our planet.

  • The only one planet is not named after a God is Earth. Roman gods or goddess are named other 7 planets in our solar system. During ancient times, only Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn were named because these planets are visible to the naked eye. In Roman method of naming planet was retained after the discovery of Uranus and Neptune.

  • Because of the presence of nickel iron core Earth has a strong magnetic field. This magnetic field is also responsible for preventing heavy solar winds from blowing on the earth causing damage to various life forms.

  • The speed of the rotation of the Earth is gradually slowing down, meaning that in some 140 million years from now the length of the day on earth would be 25 hours.

  • We have the 3rd rock from the sun our home, Earth, the third planet from the sun, they only world knows to support an atmosphere free oxygen, oceans of liquid water on the surface big one life. Earth is one of the four terrestrial planets like Mercury, Venus and Mars it is rocky at the surface.

DENSITY OF EARTH

  • The density of Earth mantle rock is 5.5 grams centimeter cube. Liquid core It contains of rock and half metal the density of earth of solid core approximately 12 grams per centimeter cube rotation of inner core difference 1% per year.

  • It is the hottest spot in Libya. Yet it does not melt the iron remains in the solid crystal form. The inner core has a temperature between 5400 to 6000 degree Celsius. The fiery awards for Earth’s hotspot go to El Azizia, Libya, where temperature records from weather stations reveal it hit 136 degrees Fahrenheit on 13th September 1992 according to NASA Earth observatory. They have likely been located on the network of weather station.

  • The Earth receives between 100 and 300 metric tons of cosmic dust everyday which exists in outer surface as well as over the planet.

  • Earth is the planet with plate tectonics. Earth consists of seven large plates which more in different directions at a speed up to 4 inches per year. According to the theory when they collide one with other mountains are formed. valleys are formed also if we consider the negative side of this plate and their collision are the cause earthquakes volcanic eruptions.

  • Auroras occur when charged particles from the sun funneled toward Earth by the planet’s magnetic field and collide with the upper atmosphere near the poles.

  • The deepest spot on Earth is the Atacama Desert of Chile and Peru. In the center of these desert there are places where rain has never been recorded.

THEIA

  • The earth used to have a twin planet called “Theia”. This theory, which state that once we were not alone in orbit around the sun. The Earth used to have a twin planet of Mars size called “Theia” till one day the planet crashed into the Earth. The major part of this planet was absorbed while a big part of it combined with material of the Earth from the moon.

  • There are about 6000 lightning flashes around the Earth every minute.

DEAD SEA
  • The lowest part of the Earth is Dead sea, which is between Jordan, Israel and the West Bank. The surface of the super salty lake is 1388 feet (420 M) below sea level

  • The Earth’s surface is covered with 70% water. The first when astronauts went into space, they look back at the Earth with human eyes for the first time on the blue planet 70% of our planet is covered with ocean the remaining 30% is the solid ground rising above sea level.

  • Most species per unit area of any of the planets ecosystems is supporting the Coral reefs

  • The Earth’s coldest place is in Antarctica. A scientist at the nation show and ice data center used satellites to measure the lowest recorded temperature ever at minus 92 degrees Celsius. In winter the temperature can drop below minus 100F (-73 C)

  • 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen are composed on Earth’s atmosphere. The highest point found on the Earth is Mount Everest, which reaches the height of 8.8 km. The gravity between the Earth and the moon causes the tide on Earth. The Earth has an Ozone layer which protects us from harmful solar radiation. The shell is a special type of oxygen that absorbs most of the sun’s powerful UV rays.

  • The Earth was a center of the universe. Due to the apparent movement of the sun and planets in relation to their viewer. Ancient scientist insists that remain static whilst other celestial bodies travelled in circular orbit around it.

  • Earth is not a perfect sphere because of its rotation the shape of an Earth oblate spheroid, a sphere that is slightly squashed at its poles and slightly swollen at the equator
