42 Interesting Fun Facts About Earth

Earth is the only known planet in the universe with life. Despite this, scientists continue to search for evidence of life on other planets and moons in the hopes of discovering new forms of life.

Earth is a unique planet in the universe and the only known planet to support life. While scientists continue to search for evidence of life on other planets, currently, Earth is the only known place where life exists. Here are some interesting facts about Earth that you didn’t know.

Interesting & Amazing Facts About Earth

  • Do you know, that if the Earth starts rotating 17 times more than its current angular speed, then the weight of any object placed on the equator will be zero?
  • Astronauts who travel into space may have the ability to grow a type of algae called Chlorella in their spacecraft’s cabin. This type of algae is found on Earth and can provide astronauts with essential resources such as protein-rich food, water, and oxygen. This way, astronauts will have access to the basic necessities they need to survive while they are in space. By growing Chlorella, astronauts can reduce the number of supplies they need to bring with them and make their space missions more sustainable.
  • You will be surprised to know that our Earth gets only 2 billionth part of the sunrise, even then it is so hot.
  • Around 4.5 billion years ago, the day on Earth was about 6 hours.
  • When an object is thrown from the Earth with a speed greater than 11.2 km/s in any direction, it will not come back to Earth again. This is because the object will have exceeded the pull of Earth’s gravitational force and will not be able to return to the planet’s surface.
  • At high altitudes or on mountains, the atmospheric pressure decreases as you rise above the surface of the earth. This can make cooking more difficult, because cooking times and temperatures may need to be adjusted to account for the change in atmospheric pressure. This is because atmospheric pressure affects the boiling point of water.
  • The Sun is so big that about 13 lahks Earth can be contained inside it.
  • The planet Jupiter is so big that about 1300 earth like ours can be contained inside it.
  • All of you must have seen the star falling in the sky, in our earth every year more than 30 thousand outer space objects enter the earth, which starts burning due to friction of the earth’s atmosphere, that is what we call a “falling star“.
  • Do you know, that the Earth’s orbit is not circular, but elliptical, we all know that the distance between the Earth and the Sun varies during the whole orbit. The minimum distance between the two is 14,71,66,462 km, which is called Perihelion and the maximum distance is 15,21,71,522 km, which is called Aphelion.
  • The Earth takes 365 days and 6 hours to orbit the Sun, which means every year, the Earth is 6 hours ahead of the calendar year. This extra time accumulates and every fourth year, the Earth has one extra day, making it a total of 366 days. This is known as a leap year and in February, there are 29 days instead of the usual 28 days.
  • Even after several crores of years of Earth, scientists have been able to search only 10% of the sea, still, scientists have to find out how much the sea is deep and what secret is hidden in it.
  • Humans have not set foot on any celestial body except for the moon, but in the future NASA is preparing to send humans to Mars.
  • In ancient times, people believed that the Earth is located at the centre of the universe and that stars, sun, planets and moon revolve around the Earth, which was totally wrong.
  • It is often thought that the only human-made object visible from space is the Great Wall of China, but this is not entirely accurate. Due to excessive pollution, it may not be visible, but other natural features on the Earth such as coastlines, rivers, and even large cities can be seen from space.
  • If the Earth did not have its own moon, the day on Earth would probably have increased for about 6 hours or more.

Unknown Fun Facts About Earth

  • Some of the sun’s energy hits the Earth and the ocean and turns into heat in the atmosphere.
  • Did you know that there is so much gold on Earth that it could cover the entire surface up to 1.5 feet?
  • The highest temperature ever recorded on Earth was 136°F (58°C) in the Libyan desert. The coldest temperature ever was -126°F (-88°C) at a place called Vostok Station in Antarctica.
  • About 90% of the world’s waste goes to sea.
  • Most of the Earth is covered in water, but only a small amount of it, about 1%, is clean and safe to drink.
  • Mausinram, located in Meghalaya, India, is known for being the rainiest place on Earth. This small town receives an incredible amount of rainfall each year, making it one of the wettest places in the world.
  • The Earth makes a complete rotation on its axis from west to east at a speed of 1610 km / h in 23 hours 56 minutes 4 seconds. This motion of the Earth is called rotation or daily motion.
  • The Earth’s daily rotation causes the alternation between day and night.
  • Every day on earth, 2 lakh people are born, and every second 2 people die.
  • Even though the temperature of the Earth seems normal to us, its core is equal to the temperature of the sun.
  • On 23 September and 21 March, day and night are equal on the whole earth.
  • Pythagoras was the first to suggest that the Earth was round. Later, Isaac Newton proved that the Earth was rounded, like an orange.
  • The highest elevation on Earth is Mount Everest (8,850 m) and the highest depth is the Mariana Trench (11,022 m). Thus, we can estimate that the difference between the maximum height and the maximum depth present on the Earth is about 2 km.
  • Do you know, to protect the Earth from environmental and other hazards, every year 22 April is celebrated as Earth Day in the world. It was first celebrated on 22 April 1970.
  • Earth appears blue when viewed from space due to the presence of excessive water, hence it is also known as a blue planet.
  • The gravitational force of the Moon is 1/6 of the gravitational force of the Earth, due to which 60 kg placed on Earth is 10 kg on the Moon.
  • The temperature of the Earth increases by 1 degree Celsius for every 32 meters you go down.
  • Earth is similar to Venus by size and shape; hence Venus is also called the ‘Sister of Earth‘.
  • The gravity acceleration (g) of the Earth is the lowest on the equator and the highest at the poles. This is why gravity is not found equal everywhere on Earth.

  • When life started on Earth millions of years ago, the first living beings were born in water and after that, life came on the earth.
  • The reason for tidal changes in the ocean on Earth is the gravitational force between the moon and Earth. When the moon is close to Earth, its gravity pulls seawater towards it, causing a high tide. Meanwhile, the Earth’s gravity pushes the water down, causing a low tide.
  • Scientists predict that after 5 billion years, the Earth and all life on it will come to an end. This is because, in 5 billion years, the sun will grow into a giant red star and consume the Earth, along with Venus and Mercury.
