Earth and everything on it formed approximately 4.5 billion years ago when interstellar dust was disturbed, possibly by a supernova, and began to collapse under the weight of gravity. Soon, the center of this spinning disk became our sun and the mounds of matter on its perimeter cooled, transforming into the planets we know today.
Given the incredible and anomalous circumstances that led to our climate, forests, mountains, and oceans it’s only natural that our planet is home to some seemingly alien phenomena. These are the events, landforms, and bodies of water that stand out as not only unique but as a testament to the wondrous world that lies beyond our fingertips. Beyond our lunch breaks, meetings, soccer practices, and our rush hour traffic jams. Beyond our sense of possibility. Beyond our understanding, even.
So go ahead and soak in what the Earth has to offer, there’s never a bad time to have your mind blown.
