NASA Reveals How The Earth Would Look If The Oceans Were Drained
We know that Earth is coved by 71% water but have you ever wondered what lay beneath that water? We know thanks to science and technology what lies on the ocean floor but can you imagine how the world would’ve looked if there was no water coving it.
Thanks to science and technology once again we have a video that explains how the world would look if the water from all the major water bodies were drained out. This is really insightful as we finally get to see what the continents would truly look like.
1Our planet Earth
We were all taught in school that about 71% of Earth’s surface is covered with water. There is around three-fifths of the Earth’s surface that is underwater. Over the years we have discovered everything on land and in the oceans. But, what if that water was removed from the planet?This is something science has always been asking.
There has been a long debate on how the world would look if the oceans did not exist. How would the planet look if the current percentage of land and water were reversed? Many have tried to answer this question but NASA has brought out a video that shows exactly how the world would look without water.
3Who made the video?
The video was created by planetary scientist James O’Donoghue of Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). In the video, he showed how the planet would look if we kept draining the oceans. This is not the first video he had made. His first video on the subject was released in 2008.
4How was it made?
The first video that was made in 2008 was made with the help of NASA. But the most recent one was not an original make but instead a remake of the original video. The new video is of better quality and is slowed down to show more details and overall gives a better idea about the topic.
5What did the video show?
The video shows what would happen if the world began to slowly lose water. According to the video, the first thing that would emerge would be the continental shelves which are the edges of the continents that are now underwater. These will be the first to be seen and will expand every continent by a little bit.
