7. If Earth were the size of a tennis ball, the Sun would be a sphere 24' across, approximately ½ mile away.

8. An amazing feature of the Earth is that it has almost 500 volcanoes worldwide. About 80% of the Earth, that which is found above and below the surface, are made of volcanic soil.

9. One of the most interesting facts about Earth is that it used to have a twin planet, named Theia. Some 4.5 billion years ago, a planetary body which was postulated to be large as the planet Mars, shared the same orbit with Earth. A collision between Earth and Theia transpired soon after, which resulted in the formation of the Moon.

10.Aside from the sun as Earth's main source of heat energy, humans could theoretically survive without the Sun's heat as the planet's inner core is hot enough to supply energy to its inhabitants.

11.It is estimated that the core temperature is between 5,000° to 7,000° Celsius. It is just as hot as the sun's surface.

12.Since the Earth is also several million miles closer to the Sun at that time of the year than in the summer, sunlight striking the moon was about 7% stronger making it brighter. Also, this was the closest perigee of the Moon of the year since the moon's orbit is constantly deforming. In places where the weather was clear and there was a snow cover, even car headlights were superfluous.

13.There are more trees on Earth than stars in this galaxy.

14.Located about 40 thousand light years away, there is a planet believed to be paved in large amounts of diamonds. This planet is named 55 Cancri E. Actually, its mantle is made of diamonds, not the surface, it's 2 times the size of Earth.

15.One day, Earth will have its last solar eclipse ever, due to our planet’s moon slowly moving further away from the sun as it orbits and will no longer appear large enough in the sky to block all sunlight.

16.The center of the Earth, its core, is molten. This core is 7,500°c, hotter than the surface of the Sun.

17.The oceans are over 90% unexplored.

18.The worlds oceans contain nearly 20 million tons of gold. If all the gold suspended in the world's seawater were mined, each person on Earth could have about 9 pounds of gold.

19.Earth is the only planet with plate tectonics, scientists believe the Earth is made up of 7 major plates of crust, which move in different directions up to 4" per year. When they crash into each other, the theory goes, mountains are born, where they pull apart we have valleys. On the scary side these also cause earthquakes and volcanoes. The good news is that all this activity allows for carbon, essential to our very existence, to be recycled and replenished, allowing life as we know it to continue.

20.Earth experiences about 44,000 thunderstorms every day, with approximately 1,800 storms in action at any given moment.

21.Highest point on Earth is not Mount Everest. True, it's one of the most famous mountains in the world, and at 29,035' above sea level it's pretty darn tall. However, considering we now know that the Earth is not round , anyone or anything along the equator is slightly closer to the stars. This means that although Mount Chimborazo in Ecuador is just 20,564' above sea level, because it is on this bump it is technically further away from the Earth's center, higher than Everest by 1½ miles.

22.At over 1,200 miles long The Great Barrier Reef is the largest living structure on Earth.

23.There are over 200 corpses on Mount Everest, and they are used as way points for climbers.

24.The Earth's rotation is slowing down - This deceleration is happening almost imperceptibly, at approximately 17 milliseconds per hundred years, although the rate at which it occurs is not perfectly uniform. This has the effect of lengthening our days, but it happens so slowly that it could be as much as 140 million years before the length of a day will have increased to 25 hours.

25.Although it is known that Venus is the brightest celestial body in the sky, Earth is comparatively brighter when observed from outer space. The factor which makes our planet the brightest among all the planets of the Solar System water.

26.The Earth has 8.6 million lightning strikes a day.

27.Standing on that equator you would be spinning around Earth's center at 1000 mph. At the poles, however, you would be standing still, and turning in a circle.

28.If you drill a tunnel through the Earth and jump into it it would take you about 42 minutes and 16 seconds to get to the other side.

29.Earth is the only place in the Solar System where water can be present in its 3 states: solid, liquid and vapor.

10.Olympus Mons on Mars is so large at its base that an observer on its peak wouldn't know they were standing on a mountain because its slope would be obscured by the curvature of the planet itself. It's the tallest known mountain in the solar system, which means it has some pretty impressive stats, Its base is the size of Arizona, the whole thing is 16 miles high, and it has 5 high cliffs at the bottom.

9. Saturn's moon Hyperion is the largest non spherical known moon in our Solar System.

10.In its composition, Hyperion is half as dense as water meaning that it would actually float if placed in water, hypothetically.

11.Researchers believe that Hyperion is actually a fragment of a much larger object that was broken up in the distant past thus obtaining its irregular shape.

12.Hyperions surface contains a large amount of deep, sharp craters that together with its irregular shape, give the moon the appearance of a giant sponge.
