15 CRAZY FACTS ABOUT OUR MOTHER EARTH
|1. Earth is not a perfect sphere.|
The centrifugal force pushes the
Earth outwards at the equator
giving it a slightly bulged.
|2. While standing on the equator|
we would be spinning around
the Earth’ center at 1000 miles/hr,
but at the poles we would be
relatively standing still and turning
just in circles.
|3. We are constantly moving|
around in space at 67,000
|4. The hottest temperature|
ever recorded on the surface
of the Earth is 1360 F or
57.80 C in El Azizia, Libya, in 1922.
|5. Likewise the coldest temperature|
every recorded was a bone chilling
-128.60 F or -89.20 C at
Antarctica’s Vostok station.
|6. Antarctica has 70%|
of Earth’s fresh
water and 90%
of it is ice.
|9. There is a belief by the|
scientist that Earth may
have had two moons
at some point of time.
|10. But some seem to approve|
that Earth has two moon’s
because now and then there
is an asteroid that gets sucked
into our orbit and keeps sticking
around for a continuous 9 months.
|11. Earthquakes are not|
the only quakes that cause
changes in the Earth. The Moonquakes
also make a good difference by affecting
the tides of the oceans and seas.
|14. The oceans cover about 70%|
of our surface but we have
explored only 5% of them.
|13. The most active volcano in|
the world is the Stromboli Volcano
in Southern Italy because it has been
erupting almost continuously for the
past 2,000 years. It has been rightly
nicknamed as “The Lighthouse
of the Mediterranean.”
