Everything You Need to Know About Planet Earth

  • Published: 04 August 2014
  • 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.

                      How do you determine what's at the center of the earth down to the type of metals if the deepest humans have ever dug is only 12 km? Is it something we know for certain or is it just a theory?

                        Claire the Loon We think we know as the magnetic field is basically clue. Iron and nickel are magnetic, so that is how we assume what is at the centre of the earth.

                      Look, I love science more than anything, but how do they know so much about the mantle and core and what not when we haven't even observed it?

                      • Aariv Arora
                        Aariv Arora  2 days back

                        Anthony Wallace scientists study xenoliths, rocks brought from the mantle via eruptions. We know the outer core is liquid as S-waves are unable to travel through it. We assume the inner core is iron and nickel, as that is a theory for why we have a magnetic field. But remember that the distance of the layers is assumed, and may or may not be right.

                        I'm not a flatearther nor a denier of science. All I was wondering throughout this video was "how the hell do scientists know the earth's core is made up of this stuff?"

                        If somebody feels like explaining this to me I'd be very thankful.

                          Flo Mil We know this bc of the magnetic field. Iron and Nickel are magnetic, so we assume the core is made of them.

Of course micro-organisms will evolve to adapt to their environment, and eventually become completely different species through random mutation. It's really not that hard to understand that the Earth came before the organisms on it.

                                                Actually there was 2 moons formed because theres a theory that a super computer proved that when that Mars sized planet crashed into the earth there was too moons formed in the same orbit one smaller then the other and over a long period of time the smaller moon crashed into the bigger one creating are super moon that we have today also that's why the dark side of the moons crust is thicker then the side that we see
