Earth's oceans are so large and deep, humans have only explored 5% of them.
The Earth, seen from the moon, also goes through phases.
Earth is the densest planet in the Solar System.
In 1815, Mount Tambora in Indonesia erupted (believed to be the largest eruption of all time), creating a crater on its top 2,000 feet deep after it blew off 4,000 feet of the mountain.
One-third of Earth's land surface is partially or totally desert.
The most powerful earthquake ever recorded happened in 1960 when a 9.5 magnitude tremor shook Chile, destroying buildings, creating a series of tsunamis, and killing as many as 6,000 people.
Earth is the only place in the Solar System where water can be present in its three states: solid, liquid, and vapor.
Earth can be seen as a living, breathing organism: it regulates temperature, burns energy, continually renews its skin, and experiences changes to its face as it ages with time.
The Pacific Ocean is the largest and deepest body of water on Earth and contains half of all the non-frozen water in the world.
