Planet Earth🌎 is this solid thing you are standing on right now. In your everyday life you don’t really waste a thought about how amazing this is. A giant, ancient, hot rock. How did it come into existence and how big is it really? You will be surprised. The ground you are standing on is just a very, very small part of the big picture.
Man-made objects can’t possibly compete with the sheer vastness of nature. For instance, the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, is still 1/10th the height of Mount Everest, and 1/5th the distance to the sea floor. These are the kind of facts that help us zoom out of our individual perspectives of Earth.
It shows how fascinating and unbelievable Earth is and makes you realize how seemingly impossible it is for us to be living here. But we’re still here! It captures the incredible circumstances holding together the world we don’t know deep within the Earth.
