This is all the water and atmosphere on Earth.

For more details, go inside the post.

 

This is a depiction of all the water on earth (ice + fresh water + sea water) and all the breathable atmosphere on earth, in relation to the volume of the earth itself.

This same volume of air and water has been used and re-used by all living creatures for billions of years.

    the pics (at least the water) is pretty accurate.
    the globe has about 1.260.000.000.000.000.000.000 of water - or V = 1.260.000.000.000.000.000 m^3 (1,26*10^18 m^3). the mathematical formula for a sphere tells us that its radius r = (3V/4pi)^(1/3) (look this up on any website). fill in V and you get r = 1,43*10^6 m - or 1430 km, roughly the size whats shown on the picture..
