What Earth would look like Without Oceans (3pics)


Over the past six years the Mars rovers Spirit and Discovery are still patrolling the surface of the red planet making amazing discoveries... with the latest discovery was water
Could the planet Mars have been a fruitful planet like Earth?

...This bring us to the question of what would Earth look like millions of years from now if-and-when our world becomes another 'dead' planet....like Mars

If you think the following images below are interesting, check out these artistic interpretations of what Mars may have looked like covered with water billions of years ago at this link
-enjoy :) 

If you like these, then you have to check out these renderings illustrating what Mars would have looked liked billions of years ago covered with water... Check 'em out at this link...!!


Perhaps in the distant future, explorers from neighboring distant worlds will send probes to the uninhabited Earth in search of life and water... I guess time will tell...


"...This picture shows the size of a sphere that would contain all of Earth's water in comparison to the size of the Earth. The blue sphere sitting on the United States, reaching from about Salt Lake City, Utah to Topeka, Kansas, has a diameter of about 860 miles (about 1,385 kilometers) , with a volume of about 332,500,000 cubic miles (1,386,000,000 cubic kilometers). The sphere includes all the water in the oceans, seas, ice caps, lakes and rivers as well as groundwater, atmospheric water, and even the water in you, your dog, and your tomato plant..."

Um, don't you think your "sphere" of water is a bit small? The earth has more water than land (above water) that doesn't "appear" correct for some reason...

Thanks for your comment :)
I agree that the water sphere pictured above appears small in comparison... but this photo and facts were taken from numerous reputable websites such as this one:

That ratio refers to how much of the surface is covered, not the actual amount of rock to water. therefore the above picture is correct, because water only amounts to about 0.05% of the makeup of earth.

If you take a close look at the above picture, it makes it even more plausible of how the moon may have formed; by a collision of earth and another large planatoid body. Perhaps that planatoid was composed mostly of water and ice; and after slamming into the earth, it blew away quite a bit of the earth's top surface, which was ejected into space and later formed the moon. During the collision, what was left of the ice/water planatoid melted due to to the intense heat, and settled into the craters created by the collision and became our planet's oceans, rivers, and lakes.

How only so little water, the Earth's interior water?
