Alien worlds may be all the rage, with their mysticism and promise, but the orb we call home, planet Earth, has all the features of a jaw-blockbuster movie: from the drama of explosive volcanoes, past meteor crashes and catastrophic collisions between rocky plates to the apparent fantasy of the deep abysses of the ocean swirling with strange life and the tales of the coldest, hottest, deepest, highest. Here are some more interesting facts regarding the world.

Did you know that Earth really is not a sphere? That we are rocketing 67,000 mph around the sun? The most fresh water on Earth is being bottled up in Antarctica?

Here Are Some More Interesting Facts About The World

We’re the third rock from the sun

Our home, Earth, is the third planet from the sun and the only world known to support an atmosphere of free oxygen, oceans of liquid water on the surface, and the great one life. Earth is one of the four planets on earth: like Mercury, Venus and Mars, on the surface it is rocky.

Keep on reading to find out why Earth isn’t a circle, although it’s sometimes claimed to be.

Planet is a squashed sphere

No complete sphere is Planet. As Earth spins, gravity points towards the center of our planet (assuming that Earth is a perfect sphere for the sake of explanation), and a centrifugal force pushes outward. But because this gravity-opposing force acts perpendicular to the Earth’s axis and the Earth’s axis is rotated, centrifugal force is not necessarily opposed to gravity at the equator. This imbalance adds up at the equator, where gravity pushes extra water and earth masses into a bulge, or “spare tire” around our planet.

Continue to find out how high the waistline on Earth is.

The earth has a waistline

Mother Earth has a generous waistline: The globe’s diameter at the equator is 40,075 kilometers (24,901 miles). Bonus fact: You’d weigh less at the equator than if you were standing on one of the poles.

Start traveling. You’ll be shocked to know just how fast you’re going right now.

Earth is on the move

You can believe you are still standing, but you are actually going quickly. You may be speeding across space at just over 1,000 miles an hour, depending on where you are on the globe. Humans travel the fastest on the equator, while someone standing on the north or south pole will still be fine. (Imagine a basketball spinning on your finger. A random point on the equator of the ball has further to go as a point near your finger in a single turn.

Hence, the point on the equator is going faster.) And as you’ll see on the next slide, we’re still speeding around the sun at an amazing pace.

The globe moves around the sun

Oh yes, and the World is not only spinning: at 107,826 km (67,000 miles) per hour, it even moves around the sun.

Planet is Ancient

interesting facts about the world

Scientists measure the Earth’s age by dating both the planet’s oldest rocks and the meteorites found on Earth (meteorites and Earth formed simultaneously as the solar system was forming). Earth is around 4.54 billion years old according to their results.

The world is recycled

The land on which you walk is recycled. The rock process of Earth turns igneous rocks into sedimentary rocks into metamorphic rocks, and then once again.

The process is not a full loop, but the basics work like this: Magma rises from deep within the Earth and becomes rock (that is the igneous part). Tectonic processes uplift the rock to the surface where pieces are shaken off by erosion. These tiny fragments are deposited and buried, and compacted into sedimentary rocks such as sandstone by the pressure from above. When sedimentary rocks are buried much deeper they “cook” under lots of pressure and heat into metamorphic rocks.

Sedimentary rocks may of course be re-eroded along the way orre-upliftedby metamorphic rocks. Yet if metamorphic rocks are trapped in a subduction zone where one piece of crust moves under another, they can be transformed back into magma.

Our moon quakes

Earth’s moon appears quiet and very dead. Yet moonquakes, or “earthquakes” on the moon, simply leave things just a little shaken up. Moon quakes are less frequent and less powerful than the ones shaking the Earth.

Moonquakes tend to be linked to tidal stresses associated with the varying distance between the Earth and the moon, according to USGS scientists. Moonquakes also appear to occur at great depths, roughly halfway between the lunar surface and its centre.

Keep discovering what the biggest earthquake ever was.

Alaska had the biggest earthquake

The’ worst earthquake’ to shake the United States as of March 2016 was a 9.2-magnitude temblor that struck Prince William Sound, Alaska, on Good Friday, March 28, 1964. (Photographs of the Four Seasons Apartments in Anchorage, a six-story reinforced concrete lift-slab building that collapsed to the ground during the quake.) And, according to the United States, the world’s biggest earthquake was 9.5 in Chile on May 22, 1960. Geological Research (USGS).

The hottest spot is in Libya

The fiery award for the hottest spot on Earth goes to El Azizia, Libya, where weather station temperature records reveal it hit 136 degrees Fahrenheit (57.8 degrees Celsius) on September 13, 1922, according to NASA Earth Observatory. There were probably hotter locations beyond the Weather Stations network. (The image was taken from data obtained on NASA’s Aqua satellite by the High Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS)))
