How Long Would It Actually Take To Fall Through The Earth?

Video: Obviously, in order to answer this super-silly thought exercise, you’d have to make it a little bit more manageable to calculate. That means in this scenario, the Earth is perfectly round, has the same density all throughout, and won’t, like, scorch your bum when you fall through the core. Life Noggin explains the maths behind how long it would take, giving consideration to all that gravity nonsense, and comes up with a shockingly small number.


Epic Timelapse Captures An Entire Year On Earth From 1.6 Million Kilometres Away

Video: A spacecraft parked in orbit at a distance of 1.6 million kilometres has captured the mother of all timelapse videos — an entire year on Earth. Enjoy.


Why North America Looks The Way It Does

Video: North America is a beautiful continent that’s home to the Rockies, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and many more natural wonders. How did that happen? How did North America get its shape? The answer is that it took millions and millions of years. Over the history of Earth, tectonic plates have smashed into each other and dove under one another to literally move continents and create everything we see above ground.


Right Before They Erupt, Volcanoes Become Ominously Silent

If an active volcano nearby suddenly kicks up its activity with steam, smoke and below-ground rumblings, it’s a good idea to get away very quickly. But now researchers have found an even more dangerous sign to watch volcanoes for: Sudden, total silence.


What Was Going On With Earth's Magnetic Field A Billion Years Ago?

We know about our North and South poles, but what about an East, West, or slightly-to-the-left pole? According to new research published in Geophysical Research Letters, around one billion years ago, that might have been a possibility.


Researchers' Attempt To Find Even One Pristine Spot On Earth Ends In Total Failure

An exhaustive attempt by researchers to find a single untouched space on planet Earth has yielded no results. Sorry, folks, everything is ruined now.


What Would Happen If Humans Disappeared From Earth?

Video: It’s an age old question that we love to entertain because we’re all obsessed with our own mortality and the future of the world: what would happen to the world if humans disappeared? With enough time, the Earth would be able to reset itself and erase any trace of our existence. Mind Warehouse goes deep into answering it by detailing the progression of what would happen when.


How Long Will It Take To Fall Through The Earth?

You might not want to check this out for yourself, but do you know how long it would take for a person to fall through the Earth? Around 42 minutes.


What Would Happen To Our Solar System If Jupiter Didn't Exist?

Video: Our solar system is weird. Not only because we’re unique little snowflakes on a blue marble called Earth, but because other stars usually have their giant arse planets (that is, their Jupiter) orbiting them at a much closer distance. This is really common in other systems! Our Jupiter, however, doesn’t work like that. Why?


Saturn's Moon Titan Is Looking Even More Earth-Like

The Cassini mission is sending us better and better data and images of just what’s happening on the surface of Saturn’s moon Titan. And it’s beginning to look awfully familiar…
