2 Unbelivable Facts about Earth

Earth, is the third planet from the sun. It is the only planet known to support an atmosphere with free oxygen, oceans of liquid water on the surface and  the big one — life. Earth is one of the four terrestrial planet like Mercury, Venus and Mars.

FACT 1 : Boat in the River of Lava

            Can you just imagine that you are on the plate which is floating on the Lava? But it is the reality.The  top surface of the Earth is broken up into regions known as tectonic plates. These are floating on top of the magma (i.e Lava) of the Earth and can move against one another. When two plates collide, one plate will go underneath another and when they pull apart, they will allow new crust to form. It is the reason why in some places we are experiencing geological activities like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, mountain-building, and oceanic trench formation. Everyone says these are natural diasters but the fact is that ourother earth is recycling on its own. That means it recycles the carbon which is the essential source for all living organisms. 
 

FACT 2 : Driest Place

              Which is the driest place on Earth?  the answers will be the name of any deserts in the world. But you know what, the answer is Antarctica. Shocking right. We know this is the icy continent in the world.In fact, the entire continent hasn’t received any rain for more than 2 million years. I know its unbelivable but it the truth.
