That’s how long it needed to travel from the core of the Sun to its surface. After that it needs only eight minutes to reach the Earth.
  • One lightning bolt has enough electricity to service 200 000 homes.
  • Thunderstorms can generate gusts of wind that can develop additional thunderstorms 100 miles away.
  • Chemical Composition of the Earth: 34.6% Iron, 29.5% Oxygen, 15.2% Silicon, 12.7% Magnesium, 2.4% Nickel, 1.9% Sulfur, and 0.05% Titanium
  • The Greeks fenced off spots that had been struck by lightning so that man would not tred on ground touched by Gods.
  • There is NOT a law of nature that prohibits 2 snowflakes from being identical.
  • A government study showed that one small thunderstorm held more than 33 million gallons of water.
  • Earth can be seen as a living, breathing organism: it regulates temperature, burns energy, continually renews its skin, and experiences changes to its face as it ages with time
  • The biggest clouds are cumulonimbus, climbing up to 6 miles high and holding up to half a million tons of water.
  • A single snowstorm can drop 40 million tons of snow, carrying the energy equivalent to 120 atom bombs.
  • A government study showed that one small thunderstorm held more than 33 million gallons of water.

  • The oceans contain 99 percent of the living space on the planet.
  • Silence in space is endless, just like the space itself. On Earth the sound travels in waves that vibrate air molecules. But in the vacuum space there aren’t any molecules to conduct it, so the sound doesn’t exist out there. Even if a space ship explodes there will be just – silence.
  • In ten minutes, a hurricane releases more energy than all the world’s nuclear weapons combined!
  • Rain contains vitamin B12.
  • In 1973, Skylab 2 astronaut Jack Lousma told Time magazine that he’d accidentally smashed a bottle of aftershave in his first days back from a month-long sojourn in space. He’d let go of the bottle in mid-air, forgetting that it would crash to the ground rather than just float there.
