Earth is a planet full of amazing things, whether it be a small creature or large objects. It always has something new, something strange for us to explore!
So here are 5 Strangest Things On Earth That Will Blow Your Mind…
Most Inaccessible Place In The World Is Called Point Nemo
Ever thought there can be a place on Earth that is near to space than land on Earth?
The Pacific pole of inaccessibility, also known as Point Nemo, is situated in the center of the triangle made by Ducie Island, Motu Nui (part of the Easter Island chain), and Maher Island near Antarctica.
Do you know Astronauts have the closest reach to this point? Yes, this is true. International Space Station(ISS) is at a distance of 415 kilometers from this point, while the closest human colony is at a distance of 1225 kilometers.
Cathedral Made Of Salt
We have many cathedrals globally but have you ever heard of a Cathedral that is made of salt?
The Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá is an underground Roman Catholic Church in Columbia situated 180m below ground.
The Church is completely made of salt and has a huge cross made of salt. It is not that popular because people don’t know about it that much! (That why it is on our list of Strangest things!)
Humongous Fungus: Largest Living Thing On Earth
Yes, you heard it right it is not the blue whale or the Rosewood tree it is a fungus!.
Armillaria genus fungus nicknamed Humongous Fungus is a mushroom that spread across 2,385 acres in the Malheur National Forest in Oregon.
This fungus grows by feeding off of tree roots which leads to tree decay, and what better place to find trees than in the forest. This is the main reason for its huge size.
The Voynich Manuscript: Manuscript That Cannot Be Translated
We come to know about our past with the help of manuscripts left by our ancestors, but do you know there is a manuscript that still cannot be translated properly?
The Voynich Manuscript is a 240-page script written in an unknown language. It is believed to have originated between 1404 and 1438. It is filled with illustrations and diagrams of different things.
In 2018 a group of Computer Scientist claimed that they have an AI which can translate this manuscript. But researchers then admitted that they need to do more research and refinement in their venture.
Vantablack: Darkest Known Substance In The Universe
Substance darkness is calculated by the amount of light it absorbs, and you will be shocked when you hear its percentage!
It absorbs 99.98% of the light hitting on its surface. Yes, it’s true!. Surrey Nanosystems developed Vantablack in 2015- it was said to be made up of vertical carbon tubes grown in the substrate.
This makes Vantablack the closest thing to staring into a black hole!.
Everyday our home planet amazes us with such types of facts. The more we explore the more we get to know about Earth.
I myself love to explore the unknown facts of Earth, the main reason for 5 Strangest Things on Earth is that we want our readers to know facts that only a few people know.
So, at last, I just want to say
The Earth is what we all have in common.
