Ten wonderful facts about our planet you’ve never heard before

We think we know everything bout our home planet, but we couldn’t be more wrong scientists have already discovered a lot about the Universe, but they believe there is still much more to learn about our planet. Did you know that the moon was once part of earth?
1.Mount Everest is not the tallest mountain in the world

Hawaiian Mauna kea has an altitude of 13,795 feet above sea level. However, the biggest part of the volcano rests below sea level. So, if measured from the base to the summit, Mauna kea is 33,475 feet high, which is 4445 feet taller than Mount Everest.
2.Neighbouring states can have a twenty four hour time difference

Despite the fact that America Samoa is only 1,240 miles away from, the line island that form part of Kiribati, the time difference between the two neighbours is 25 hours.
3.The most dry place on Earth is located in Antarctica

It’s commonly believed that the dries place on Earth is the Atacama desert in Chile that hasn’t had rainfall for thousands of years. But the McMurdo Dry valleys in Antarctica have seen no rain nearly two million years. The winds here can reach speeds of 200 miles per hour.
4.Fresh water represents only 3% of all water on Earth

The oceans and seas hold 97% of Earth’s water, but it’s salty ocean water not suitable for drinking. The reaming 3% of total fresh water is held in glaciers (70%) and lake Baikal(20%).
5.The world’s oldest temple is about twelve thousand years old

 Göbekli Tepe, the oldest known temple, is located in Southern Turkey. Researchers believed that the carving on the pillars prove that roughly eleven thousand years ago a comet strike caused a sudden temperature drop on our planet.
6.The moon was once part of earth.

The moons oxygen and titanium are very close to those on Earth. Swedish scientists suggest that some 4.36 billion years ago planet earth Collier with hypothesized planetary mass object Theia, leading to the formation of Earth’s only permanent natural satellite.
7.Countries will reunite in 250 million years

As we know, Pangea, a supercontinent that existed 335 to 175 million years ago, split into two different continents forming Laurasia and Gondwana. Later, the two split apart to form all seven continents. But scientist believed the continents will group together again in 250 to 300 million years from now, and will become a single supercontinent called Pangaea Ultima.
8. A single called organism caused the first mass extinction

Scientists from Massachusetts institute of technology suggest a theory explaining the mass extinction that wiped out almost 90% of all living creatures on earth. A bacteri named Methanosarcina suddenly bloomed in the oceans 252 million years ago, triggering the only mass extinction of insects known to Science. It also gave Archosaurus a unique opportunity to evolve. Crocodiles evolved from Archosaurus.
9.Most of our planet always lies in the dark 

As we know, the world’s ocean occupies 71% of our planet’s surface. The depth of the water exposed to sunlight is no more than 655 feet, so the rest of the water is permanently in the dark. Therefore, most of our planet rests in the dark at any time of day.
10. Earth’s atmosphere has borders

The kármán line is an internationally accepted line that lies at an altitude of 62 miles above sea level. Although the level of the Earth’s  atmosphere ends much higher, this very line was discovered by the world air sports federation as the boundary between the atmosphere and outer space.

Why Pluto is no more planet?। What are the requirements to be a planet? Updated

Why Pluto is no more planet?। What are the requirements to be a planet? Updated  Is Pluto a planet or not?, this is a common dilemma for us. If you were in elementary school before 2006, there’s a good chance you had to memorize something that the order of our solar system; Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and finally Neptune and Pluto. Now if you are currently in elementary school you might be saying, there were nine planets?. So what happened to Pluto?. It’s not like it’s gone anywhere. It’s still out there on the edge of the solar system, as cold and far away as ever, so what changed?. Pluto hasn’t, but our understanding of it has. We know way more about space than we did one hundred years ago. Pluto itself was only discovered in 1930, so it’s not like the planet lineup hasn’t been modified before. Still that doesn’t change the fact that there’s something inherently strange about a planet being demoted. When even knew that was a thing that could happen? Things mi

God Particle | At last scientists have found God particle. Is it really related to God?

At last scientists have found God particle. Is it really related to God? God particle which is also known as Higgs boson's story starts from the question of mass. So first we will see what is mass?. If we say technically it is a measurement of inertia of a body. In other wards if a body is in static or dynamic phase and anyone wants to change its phase he/she will fill a resistance, this resistance is called mass. If you didn’t understand mass yet, let’s see an another example. We know that any thing which doesn’t have mass, travels in vacuum with the speed of light such as photon. Or we can say which travels at the speed of light in vacuum doesn’t possess any mass. Before going forward you have to make it clear that mass and weight are not same thing. In case of weight there is a contribution of gravity. That’s why mass of a any certain thing is always same in every part of this universe but it’s weight may increase or decrease depending on the different gravity of the planet. We

How Great is Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj?|A complete tale of Maratha Empire aginst Mughal | NEXT DIMENTION

How Great is Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj?|A complete tale of Maratha Empire aginst Mughal The year is 1627 AD and almost all of Bharat is islamic occupation. In the North, there are the Mughals under Shah Jahan, In Bijapur, there is sultan Mohammad Adli Shah. And in Golconda, Sultan Abdulla Qutub Shah. The Deccan sultans always preferred to have Muslim officers in the army. But the Portuguese controlled ports and Mughals controlled the land routes. That’s why it was not possible to get Muslim officers from North Africa or central Asia. So the sultans of Deccan were forced to appoint Hindu officers. One such Adil Shahi  military commander was a Maratha named Shahaji Bhosale. Shahi was a top General in the Adil Shahi empire. In 1630 AD in the fort of Shuvneri near junnar in present day Maharashtra, a son was born to Sahajo and Jijabai. The son named after the local deity Shivai would grow up to be Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Shivaji's father was always away in his childhood, so his tw
