- There are an estimated 10 million galaxies in the observable universe. The Milky Way, which contains our solar system, is just one of them.
- Earth isn’t actually round. It’s an oblate spheroid, meaning it’s flattened at the poles and bulges at the equator.
- The world’s oceans contain enough salt to cover all of Earth’s landmass with a layer approximately 500 feet (152 meters) thick.
- Only 1% of the water on Earth is fresh water that we can use; the rest is either salty ocean water or frozen in glaciers or ice caps. Of that 1%, almost 69% is used for agriculture irrigation and another 26% goes towards industrial uses like cooling power plants and manufacturing processes. That leaves less than 1% for domestic use by people like you and me!
- Every day, the Sun loses 360 million tons of material through what’s called “solar wind.” At this rate, it will completely exhaust itself in about 10 billion years .
- A single raindrop falling from the sky can travel up to 20 miles per hour.
- There are more than 60,000 miles of blood vessels in an adult human body. If you laid them out end-to-end, they would stretch around the world almost four times!
- Every day, your heart beats 100,000 times. That’s over 35 million times a year and more than 2.5 billion times in a lifetime!
