    The earth being smooth doesn't make sense, what about all the coastal land that is above sea level as well as all the hills and small mountains?

    That's a very interesting infographic, I love these things. I can only wonder how such information has been acquired. How do they know what exactly is in the Earths core?

    lol..Well it's a little tricky, I found this little tidbit maybe it'll bring a bit of clarity to the matter


    Proof that the Earth is smoother than a billiard ball


    The World Pool-Billiard Association Tournament Table and Equipment Specifications (November 2001) state: "All balls must be composed of cast phenolic resin plastic and measure 2 ¼ (+.005) inches [5.715 cm (+ .127 mm)] in diameter and weigh 5 ½ to 6 oz [156 to 170 gms]." (Specification 16.)

    This means that balls with a diamenter of 2.25 inches cannot have any imperfections (bumps or dents) greater than 0.005 inches. In other words, the bump or dent to diameter ratio cannot exceed 0.005/2.25 = 0.0022222

    The Earth's diameter is approximately 12,756.2 kilometres or 12,756,200 metres.

    12,756,200 x 0.0022222 = 28,347.111

    So, if a billiard ball were enlarged to the size of Earth, the maximum allowable bump (mountain) or dent (trench) would be 28,347 meters.

    Earth's highest mountain, Mount Everest, is only 8,848 meters above sea level. Earth's deepest trench, the Mariana Trench, is only about 11 kilometers below sea level.

    So if the Earth were scaled down to the size of a billiard ball, all its mountains and trenches would fall well within the WPA's specifications for smoothness.

    However, it should be noted that if the Earth were reduced to the size of a billiard ball, it would not conform to the WPA specifications, due to its shape (as well as its composition). The Earth is not a perfect sphere. It is an oblate spheroid. The distance between its poles is shorter than its diameter at the equator by approximately 42km. As this is greater than the 28.347km stated above, it would not be deemed sufficiently spherical to pass the test.

    But wouldn't a % of imperfections be a better description?

    Cool infographic. That's definitely the type of thing that goes viral, putting it together must have been a huge task though.

    Wow the ozone is getting smaller!?? didn't know that! after looking it up it seems that because the ozone is getting smaller UV radiation will become higher (resulting in higher chance of skin cancer).

    A smaller ozone lowers the amount of uv radiation.
