Did you know?

Did you know that the Earth is not perfectly round?


When we look at photos, the Earth looks so round that astronauts call it the "Blue Marble".  However, appearances can be deceiving.  It's true. 

In fact, our plant isn't perfectly round. It is a little bit "fatter" at the equator. This is due to tidal patterns and the rotation on the axis... the Earth spins a lot faster than you would think!
