All of the water on Earth as a planet

All Of Earth's Water In A Single Sphere 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 diameter would be roughly the distance from Salt Lake City, Utah to Topeka, Kansas.

Compared to Jupiter’s moon Europa, our planet is practically a desert, as this NASA image shows. It’s a computer visualization showing Europa and a dried-out Earth, with the volume of all their water represented by blue spheres.  (Details at APOD: 2012 May 24 - All the Water on Europa)

The Earth has variable gravity (as seen in the “lumpy” image above) that you and I can’t feel.

Earth’s Gravitational Field - The Potsdam Gravity Potato High areas on this map, colored red, indicate areas where gravity is slightly stronger than usual, while in blue areas gravity is slightly weaker.

All Known Planets by xkcd. "Planets are turning out to be so common that to show all the planets in our galaxy, this chart would have to be nested in itself--with each planet replaced by a copy of the chart--at least three levels deep.

Venus is one unique planet when it comes to rotational motion. It takes Venus 243 Earth days to completely rotate on its axis, but just 225 days to orbit the sun. Venus also is one of two planets that rotates in reverse, a phenomenon called retrograde motion, which according to most theories is due to an ancient planetary collision.

Venus - one day is longer than its entire year. It takes Venus 243 Earth days to completely rotate on its axis, but just 225 days to orbit the sun. Venus is one of two planets that rotates in reverse, called retrograde motion.
