Earth’s deepest point…..

     The mariana trench  is known as the deepest point on the earth. This deepest location is found in the western pacific ocean. It is having a length of   2550mtrs. Width of  69kms the deepest point is 10994mtrs deep from the sea level and can imagine that even mount everest will be submerged in that completely and will have still few hundred meters of water on it…. The pressure will be 1000times than that  at the sea level…   The temperature at that deep is around 1° to 5°…… And it have been  found that  few micro organisms exist at that level too…..

Earth’s Ugliest…..    The blob fish…..

The creature in the picture is the blob  fish. The one  which is found  deep under the ocean. It doesnt have any teeth and  completely it is bone less. It have been  observed that it feeds  on the shrimps and crabs aslo  sea shells. It is named as the ugliest  due to its outlook and the blob like shape. It sustains high water preasure since it is a creature living deep  under water.  It will not survive if the pressure variations occur that is if it is brought to the higher level of water. They are endangered since they will be caught by fisher nets sometimes  and will be dead by the time they will be put back into water…….  So sad 😦

Earth’s oldest creature…  Sea sponge…. 

According to the various  researches done….  The sea spong  is expected to be the first on earth, this was  done  by collecting  the fossils  and doing  various chemical and molecular tests on it.  So finally they  came to know that it matched with the  sea sponges which are still having the same characteristics….  They are expected  to be living  from 540million  years……

PLANET EARTH.. Our home to be known… And all we have on it… 

​Earth is the third planet from the Sun and is the largest of the terrestrial planets. The Earth is the only planet in our solar system not to be named after a Greek or Roman deity. The Earth was formed approximately 4.54 billion years ago and is the only known planet to support life.
Equatorial Diameter: 12,756 km
Polar Diameter: 12,714 km
Mass: 5.97 x 10^24 kg
Moons: 1 (The Moon)
Orbit Distance: 149,598,262 km (1 AU)
Orbit Period: 365.26 days
Earth’s formation and evolution:
Scientists think Earth was formed atroughly the same time as the sun and other planets some 4.6 billion years ago, when the solar system coalesced from a giant, rotating cloud of gas and dust known as the solar nebula. As the nebula collapsed because of its gravity, it spun faster and flattened into a disk. Most of the material was pulled toward the center to form the sun.and other particles within the disk collided  and stuck together to form ever-larger bodies, including Earth. The solar wind from the sun was so powerful that it swept away most of the lighter elements, such as hydrogen and helium, from the innermost worlds, rendering Earth and its siblings into small, rocky planets.
       Scientists think Earth started off as a waterless mass of rock. Radioactive materials in the rock and increasing pressure deep within the Earth generated enough heat to melt Earth’s interior, causing some chemicals to rise to the surface and form water, while others became the gases of the atmosphere. Recent evidence suggests that Earth’s crust and oceans may have formed within about 200 million years after the planet had taken shape…….
