Everything You Need to Know About Planet Earth

  • Published on: 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.

    I just come here to learn and my homework is brilliant. This helps. I have a 96 in science and if I keep this up I might be able to get in honors high school then ap classes. And I already got world history and ELA in the bag.

    Hearing people say this video is better than school makes me sad. As an earth scientist, some parts of this video are cringe worthy.

    How do we know what is inside the Earth and what it's made of if we never dug past the crust?

    This would be hilarious if it wasn't being passed off as science. Science proves much of this to be false. The rest cannot be proven to be true.

    You said that the lithosphere is viscous and that the asthenosphere is solid. I am being taught the opposite by most college professor and I believe that they are correct.

    I love these space videos please talk more of these kind like about the multiverse and the Dyson sphere is one of my favourite vids on this channel and even wished for the poster on my birthday and got it too and its hanging in my room rn. tbh I started getting really interested in physics and astronomy since this channel and I'm 15 and constantly babbling my friends full of nerdy space stuff and probably going to study astrophysics tooRN I take my knowledge from mostly youtube crash course, this kurzgesagt channel ...Wikipedia a bit and books like star-maker(even if its a mostly sci-fi book and very fictional it's very inspiring) I'm working on gathering everything I learn about these kinds of things in a notebook with a bunch of little pictures or illustration with the text...IDK I just wanted to say thx for making such inspiring person cause if it weren't for this channel I probably still wouldn't know what to do with my life.

    I really get the feeling that the earth which is perfect to sustain life because of how it is made eg. magnetic field protecting us, breathable atmosphere, water, food, fertile land, placement from the sun and everything else that we don't understand but is said to have been by chance that all these complex systems came about, was really created and designed by ya know, a designer. Such as God. In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. - Genesis 1:1 KJV. It only makes sense. This phone I typed this on, we as humans understand it, and can recreate it. But yet we don't understand how all the naturally created things work. Eventually we may learn how but, if this phone, being simple enough to understand has an engineer, a designer behind it, then how would the earth and all its complex properties be an accident?

    This video is fake. The moon and the stars are located in side the firmament and not out side. Polaris prove the flat Earth. The only way the stars can retain a relative position to each other is if you are not moving and the Universe is a fixed sphere moving around you. All satellites images are CGI. Satellite are hoax, fakery and lies.
