Yes, that's right. The truth about the planet you call home is that it is more bizarre than you think. From dark matter to the endless universe, our world is made up of unseen external forces that humans are still not able to understand entirely. Thus, we have enough unsolved earth mysteries to discover for those who love to uncover strange mysteries!
So, in today's episode of the 'World of Amazing Facts', we are going to reveal some interesting yet strange mysteries about planet Earth that will thrill your mind.
Unexplained Mysteries of Earth
Spoiler: What if we tell you that our 4.543 billion-year-old planet isn't eternal and may celebrate its last birthday sooner or later? Well, the end of the world remains one of the biggest mysteries that are still unexplained.
The ‘Big Crunch’ theory suggests that the expansion of the universe which has been going on since the Big Bang existed will fall into the force of gravity.
As a result, everything – planets, universes, stars – will be pulled together into a sole, dense point of mass, to the point where everything is put to an end.
Don't be afraid though, all of this is at least a billion years away!
But what's more concerning is that the Big Crunch is not the only theory out there about our impending extinction. Other such theories include ‘the Big Freeze’, ‘the Big Bounce’ and ‘the Big Rip’.
The truth is nobody knows how the universe will end. Yet!
Ever noticed some dark shape-shifting clouds near the ground during the time of dusk? You won't believe this but as the clouds revolve and morph, they are positively alive. Weird? Well, that's what makes this planet rare.
Formed by hundreds of starlings gliding in duos, this phenomenon is known as a murmuration. Scientists believe that birds generally sit and rest on this mesmerizing display. But it’s still one of the unexplained mysteries of Earth as to how, exactly, they are alive!
