Just A Reminder Of How Small We Are

This is the distribution of mass in the different planets, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Earth making up just 1%.

And this is a distribution of all the mass in the solar system, including the sun - all the planets make up that tiny line up the top, 0.14% left over after the sun…

Incredibly high speed photography shows how fast a fly can maneuver. This fly makes a 45 degree turn while moving at high speeds in a ridiculously small time span, much faster than any man made aircraft can perform.

earthstory:

Hidden away on the remote island of Iriomote in Okinawa Prefecture, Japan, you can find the small beach of Hoshizuna no Hama. The name translates to “star sand beach” accredited to the star shaped sand like formations that can be found there. The star shapes are the exoskeletons of a tiny one-celled organism, barely a millimetre across, called Baclogypsina sphaerulata. These protozoa have 5 or 6 pointed arms that help them move from place to place and accumulate some of the diatoms which they eat. The outer shell is made of calcium carbonate, and when they die, they leave their star shaped exoskeleton behind to be washed up on the beaches.-Jean

The deepest cave in the world, the Krubera-voronya cave, is the only known cave to exceed a depth of 2000 meters, and we still don’t know how deep it is!

In 2004 it was explored to a depth of 2080 meters which was as far as explorers could go as it was filled with water below, but then in 2012 a diver managed to extend the known depth of the cave to 2197 meters!

Yesterday I had the opportunity to hold a piece of the core of a planet blown up circa 4 billion years ago! it was heavier than I thought it was…
