Earth  facts

10 Amazing facts about our planet earth that many people don't know about so breathe in the oxygen and let's discover the mysterious, unbelievable and interesting facts about our planet earth.

Fact Number 1: 

Earth is among the smaller planets around but do you know that it is the most dense of all of the celestial bodies orbiting our Sun. It is a strange fact about the earth.

The terrestrial planets the 4 rocky planets mercury, venus, earth and mars orbiting closest to the Sun are all denser than the 4 outer planet Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus.

You must know that mercury much smaller in measurement than Earth but yet it is the second most dense planet within the system. Because of Mercury's proximity to the Sun. Gravitational Pull performs a significant role in planet's density uncompressed mercury can be denser than Earth on account of its large core of iron and nickel these two components play a vital half in shaping our density as well our interior and outer cores are composed of them and it is believed that our outer core spins in an opposing course to the earth rotation producing our planet's magnetosphere

Fact Number 2 :

we are travelling at 67,000 miles per hour around the Sun. Considering how rapidly earth is spinning and revolving it's amazing that we can still survive safely through the cosmos out there. In past, we had major impacts with comets and asteroids but the earth is still going great. 

Fact Number 3 :

Here is a fact about the earth's rotation. No matter how fast earth is moving if you are at the North or the South Pole you wouldn't spin at all the access is on the hinge in which our world turns on the equator though your body is stuffed by gravity to a part of the earth that is turning at a rate of about 1,000 miles per hour.

Fact Number 4 :

Our whole solar system is rotating around the Milky Way galaxy at 490 thousand miles per hour and the Milky way along with all the other galaxies around us is rushing away from the Big Bang's origin point at a rate of 621.4 miles per second, this is known as expanding universe. And scientist says that we are heading towards a mysterious place called the Great Attractor that's about 150 million light-years away. 

Fact Number 5 :

Earth spins around the geographic North and South Poles which more or less stay in the same general location but the exact coordinates of our magnetic north and south poles are changing every day. This is because of many factors like the rotation of our planet's core, the radiation and energy in the magnetosphere and ionosphere. On average, the pole will move 10 kilometres per year.

Fact Number 6 :

Most of the freshwater of the world is concentrated at one place Antarctica. our southernmost continent contains a huge 70% of freshwater and 90% of Earth's total ice content the other 10% is in the north in Greenland's ice sheet.  The Ice thickness is generally 5000 feet deep but that's just the average some places and can go up to a depth of up to14,000 feet. Overall 1.7 per cent of all water on earth is frozen in ice but that 1.7 per cent accounts for nearly three-fourths of all the world's freshwater content.

Fact Number 7 :

All this concern about our planet's water and but we barely know our own oceans although 70% of the earth is covered in the water. we've only really explored a small portion of it.  

A very high percentage of the depths of the Atlantic, Pacific, Indian and Arctic oceans remain undiscovered. but that doesn't mean we haven't looked at the big picture, with satellite imaging. we have managed to map all features of the ocean floor that are five kilometres or more.

Basically we know the location of major geological features and that's it since satellite radio waves were obstructed by ocean water our best bet for detailed mapping of the rocky surfaces at the bottom of the sea is to rely on the sonar of ships, unfortunately, this method only gives us a more intricate view of the strip of land directly under the moving boat and has allowed us to get detailed views of only about 10 to 15% of the ocean floor in that respect we have more knowledge about the surface of Mars and Venus than our own Ocean.

Fact Number 8 :

There is enough gold down in the ocean to fill the pockets of every single person on earth with $21,000. Initial mining endeavours would be handled by remotely operated vehicles but eventually floating platforms would be placed above mining sites with conveyor belts transfer learning materials from the ocean floor to the surface.

If this gets too complicated maybe they will find a way to extract the material directly from the seawater, in fact, each drop of water is a tiny tiny goldmine outside of what embedded on the ocean floor.  There is one gram gold for every 100 billion litre water in the Atlantic and North Pacific ocean.

Fact Number 9 :

Moving on to one of Earth's drier climate a mystery in Death Valley has confounded scientists for several generations in the dried-up lakebed of this desert terrain rocks weighing up to 600 pounds have been found to move overnight leaving tracks in the dirt behind them what could cause such movement dust devils gale force winds, alien brothers and fellow scientists Richard and James Norris discovered that ice frozen to the surface following a rare night of rainfall would eventually breakup cling to the bottom of the rocks catch the wind and act as sails pushing the rocks along a desert floor at an average of 15 feet per minute it's a rare event that requires several factors rainfall freezing temperatures and appearance by the Sun to break up the frozen ice in a thin layer of remaining rainwater on which the ice can act as a sail moving the rocks even though the rocks float across the desert very slowly they bring some much-needed liveliness to Death valley.

Fact Number 10 :

Our own planet is full of infinite wonders we may eventually run out of natural resources forced to transition from space exploration to space migration. we will want to settle on a place like Earth although NASA assumed we'd eventually come across planets outside of our solar system.

It was looking like a never happening dream until 1995, that the first exoplanet was discovered beyond that we had to wait until earlier this year before NASA could confirm the discovery of the largest group of potentially earth-like satellites orbiting an ultra-cool dwarf star referred to as Trappist.

one three of the seven newly located planets are in the just right zone where life could thrive, the difference between our solar system's habitable zone and the Trappists that their star is much smaller and cooler than our own allowing the potential for organisms to survive in a location much closer to their Sun over the next 10 years NASA experts coupled with satellite analysis will research the atmospheres climates and gravitational signatures of these planets to learn if they're suitable for life at only 40 light-years away we may be able to visit this place say 3017 stay healthy so you can tell all the beings on Trappist about the beauty of a small blue planet in a solar system not too far away that has wide oceans deep forests.
