Earth has a strong magnetic field, thanks to two important factors, its nickel iron core and a pretty fast. Axial, rotation. The magnetic field is vital for Earth because it protects the planet from the impact of solar winds. We think of it. Our planet’s magnetic field as something constant and stable, but the truth is that is changing researchers say that since the 19th century. The northern magnetic pole has shifted about six hundred eighty five miles moving North Westward across the Canadian Arctic. The southern magnetic pole is also constantly roaming scientists have actually known about the migration of the polls for a long time. James Ross, an Explorer and British Naval.
Medical for the first time in 1831. He discovered it, during his exhausting Voyage to the Arctic where his ship got trapped in the ice, forcing the crew to spend a harsh for years there. Maybe that’s why nobody went back to that place until the next Century. In 1904 Roald, amundsen a polar regions, Explorer from Norway, reach the north magnetic pole. Again and was surprised to find that it had shifted 31 miles. Since Ross has discovered. Every hey, you can’t keep a good pull down. You know what? I mean? He just got to let them wander. Number 8 gravity isn’t the same everywhere on the planet.
Earth. Despite common belief isn’t perfectly round. It’s more like a squashed sphere, kind of like how my head is shade. So, it’s mass is irregular, and differs in various places, which causes wobbles of gravity in different areas of the planet. One of these gravitational anomalies is found in Canada’s Hudson Bay where the gravity is much weaker than anywhere else on the planet.
A 2007 study found the reason for such a phenomenon is melted. Glaciers, that area was once covered with a thick layer of ice when that ice later. Melted the imprint of this Glacier partially pushed aside. Some of the Earth’s mass in that region, is precisely this slight deformation of the crust that can explain the 25 to 45 percent weaker gravity there, who they should open up a spa, sounds like a great place to lose some Heat and not have to work so hard, huh? As for the rest perhaps, it’s somehow connected with the movement of magma in the planets, mantle at least that’s what researchers have predicted in science journal.
Number seven, Earth had and still might have one more Moon. Some scientists believe that our planet used to have an additional satellite according to their research, a smaller Celestial body about 750 miles wide. Orbited the Earth just like a second moon. It most likely crashed into our main satellite later on such a collision. Could explain why the two sides of the Moon looks so different. From each other one, being heavily cratered and rough. Scientists. Also, don’t rule out the probability that one day Earth.
Get another satellite even today. There are tons of celestial bodies that follow the planet. They’re mostly temporary companion style. But scientists say that the gravitational field of our planet occasionally captures, even quite big asteroids that spin around the earth for several months or about three rotations after that. They move on in their journey across the expanses of the cosmos, kind of like hitchhikers. Number six, there are moonquakes on the moon. Earthquakes or rather moonquakes on the moon aren’t something from science fiction. They actually happen. They don’t occur as often as those on Earth, but they are much deeper and closer to the center of our satellite about halfway between the Surface and the core scientists believe this phenomenon has something to do with the gravitational force between the Earth and the Moon. So we can truthfully say to the Moon. Hey, your Quake is not our fault, get it fault. All right, let’s move on. Number five, our planet is covered in Gold, really. About 20 million tons of gold can be found inside our very own planet. And in the Seas, if all this precious metal could be extracted. It would be enough to cover the entire surface of the planet. In a two-foot layer of gold. And if we gave everyone an equal piece, each one of Earth’s inhabitants would get nine pounds of this treasure, but don’t rush out to dig up your backyard. Just yet. The metal is extremely diluted. You can only get a gram of gold for every 100 million tons of sea water, but can’t we at least try please. Number four, Earth used to be purple?
Dr. Scholl the Sarma, a microbial geneticist from the University of Maryland, hypothesize has, which is a ten-dollar scientific word for guesses that our planet was once purple. He thinks that ancient microbes probably didn’t use chlorophyll, but other molecules to process sunlight these molecules, most likely would have given a violet Hue to the microbes turning the entire planet. Purple, man. I was born a way too early. He wouldn’t. Dad, number three, the tallest mountain on the planet isn’t what you think. Now, this may seem shocking, but the title of the tallest mountain in the world might be stolen from Mount Everest. No doubt. This enormous Mountain reaches 29,029 feet above sea level and there’s no other mountain on Earth that stands so tall, but there is Mauna Kea a mountain in Hawaii. It stands proud with its peak. Just about 13,800 to feet above sea level. By the way. This makes Hawaii the second tallest island in the whole world.
So what are we getting at? You ask that’s much shorter than Mount Everest after all true. But the thing is that the largest part of this over 1 million year old mountain is underwater and if measured from the very bottom on the ocean floor to the peak, Mauna Kea is 33,000 feet, tall, making it technically the tallest mountain on the planet Aloha. Number two, Earth has Loading Lakes.
On the border of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Rwanda, as well as in Cameroon. There are three deadly explosive, Lakes Nya’s Mo, noun and Kevo are Crater Lakes that are located over volcanic Earth. This means that magma lurking below. The surface emits carbon dioxide into the Waters of the lake. This carbon dioxide gives way and it’s released in an explosion.
Now, it doesn’t happen often. But if anyone is unlucky enough to be passing by at that moment, they’ll be asphyxiated with the gasps. Oh my, so it’s really a farting leg that can kill you. If you get too close. Hey, I have a brother-in-law, kinda like that. And number one, Earth is home to the most powerful, volcanic eruption ever the most powerful eruption ever recorded happen in April 1815. The heart of the explosion was Mount Tambora in Indonesia. This eruption was ranked a seven or super colossal on the volcanic explosivity Index. This ranking is similar to the Richter, scale for earthquakes and goes from 1 to 8. The 1815 explosion was so loud.
Out that even people on some Mantra Island could hear it. And that’s about 1,200 miles away. Over 71,000 people died in this catastrophic disaster and dark clouds of wet ash-covered, distant Islands, scary.
So which Earthly fact shocked, you the most perhaps, you know some more information about our beautiful planet that we haven’t mentioned.
