Picture of the Day

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.

Hmmm, Greenland is still covered in ice.

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..
