Our Amazing Earth back

Toasty!

  1. The Sun has enough energy to burn for about another 5 billion years, but if it suddenly stopped shining, it would take 8 minutes for people on Earth to be aware of it.
  2. The average raindrop falls at about 11kmh.
  3. Raindrops cannot form unless there are tiny particles such as dust, pollen or smoke to form around. If the air was perfectly clean, there would be no rain
  4. 16 million storms happen each year. At any given moment, there are 1800 thunderstorms occurring around the world. That’s nearly 100 storms for every single second.
  5. A bolt of lightning travels at about 116 million km/h and generates temperatures five times hotter than those found on the surface of the Sun. It has enough energy to toast 160,000 pieces of bread in 1 ten-thousandth of a second.
  6. The energy in one hurricane is equal to about 500,000 atomic bombs.
