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.

                      Two radically opposed thoughts come to me as I watch this video. Either the whole existence of human race is a tiny tiny speck in the timeline of the earth, insignificant in impact and bound to perish. Or the whole earth and its development to the present stage is a process that was bound to make human development possible for us to change the earth and universe.
