Today we will going to describe some scientifically proven points about the earth that will surely going to surprise you all. Get ready for a roller coaster ride:
As cool as moon rocks are, on Earth rocks can walk. Or at least slide. In Death Valley rocks weighing hundreds of pounds slide across the desert floor leaving trails in their wake. Scientists believe wind and ice are the culprits.
The longest mountain range on Earth is actually underwater. It is called the mid ocean ridge system. It stretches for 80,000 km all around the world and is nearly 20 times longer than the longest range on the surface, the Andes Mountains. Not only that, the whole thing is completely volcanic.
Volcano’s aren't the only things that explode gas and magma. Lakes do that too. In Africa, on the borders of Cameroon, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo there are several lakes that sit above volcanic earth, which results in large pockets of dangerous gas being trapped beneath them. If they were to explode they would asphyxiate any passersby.
70 percent of the planet is covered in ocean but humans have only explored 5 percent of it.
Constructed from millions of tiny polyps, coral reefs are the largest living structures on Earth, some even visible from space.
There are a lot more other surprises that are totally hidden into the dark secret of EARTH.
