I thought this shouldn’t just go in the container so here’s a post that contains nothing but this picture and some facts. Left – all the water on Earth, right – all the air on Earth. And some quick facts to go with (wiki):
Water: it covers 71% of the Earth’s surface; 97,2% is in the oceans, 1,8% in the glaciers, ice caps and ice sheets, 0,9% groundwater, 0,02% of fresh water in inland sees, lakes and rivers, 0,001% is atmospheric water vapor at any given time.
Air: the average mass of the atmosphere is 5 quadrillion metric tons or 1/1.200.000 of the mass of Earth which makes the pictured sphere of water 16% of the Earth’s size.
I was wondering what that giant ball rolling over my back yard was the other day. See how it’s standing on Slovenia? But I understand, I do. You had to pick a beautiful piece of Earth to put the ball on and you went with Slo, that’s cool.
