Fact : Do you know ? How long it takes to evaporate all water on earth.

Posted on Updated on

Do you know water on earth evaporates daily and again come back on surface in the form of rain. What if it doesn’t rain. How long will it take to evaporate whole of it from earth.

First of all let me explain you what is difference between evaporation and boiling.
Evaporation happens only at the surface of a liquid and occurs at any temperature (so long as the substance is a liquid at that temperature). However, as most people are aware, liquids evaporates faster at a higher temperature.

Boiling, on the other hand, happens throughout the bulk of a liquid, usually starting from some site on the inside of the container and rising in a bubble to the surface. It only happens when the temperature is above the boiling point of that substance.

In a recent study scientists found that there is 1332 million cubic kilometres of water on earth. Out of which 97% is saline water and not fit for drinking. Only 3% is potable.
And about 1400 cubic kilometres of water is evaporated each day on earth. To put this in perspective, this
is about 10,000 times the amount of water consumed by the United States per day.

It means it will take around 2607 years to evaporate even last drop of water from earth.

Fact : Do you know ? There is a place where it rains diamonds.

What if Hailstorm turns into Diamond Rain.

Now if you thinking that it is not possible. I would like to tell you that it is happening.
Just 588 million Kilometres away from your current location.

Yes I am talking about Jupiter.
Diamonds can form when elemental carbon, like graphite or soot created by huge lightning storms on Jupiter and Saturn, falls into the deep atmosphere of the planet where it is crushed into the gem.

Those solid diamonds then move farther into the depths of the planet, where they turn into a liquid near the core.
Scientists have known that stable diamonds may exist in the relatively chilly cores of Neptune and Uranus, but until now, Jupiter and Saturn were thought too hot to allow for solid, stable diamond formation.

So if you want ready to use diamonds in bulk. Start planning a trip to Neptune.
