Neomammalian Studios, a UK-based infographics agency, put together this infographic containing 50 facts about Earth that you probably won’t believe.
We had no idea that the largest meteor ever to fall to earth left no crater, that there is as much ice in Antarctica as there is water in the Atlantic Ocean, that bacteria have been found alive 1.7 miles below the Earth’s surface, and that only 14% of Earth’s species have been identified to date.
Did you know that 75 percent of Earth’s animal species could be extinct within the next three centuries? Or that up to a million species — most of them still unknown to humans — live in the world’s oceans?
