Pictures that cast new light on our planet
From space, the Earth is a water planet. Oceans cover more than 70 per cent of its surface and are around 13,000ft deep. Yet, as this image shows, if every drop of water in the world was collected in a sphere, it would be just 869 miles across - barely big enough to cover Eastern Europe. If the same exercise was done with the air - the nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide and other gases that blanket the Earth - the ball would be not much bigger, as the globe on the right shows.
The simplicity of the idea, but the impact of the result, made All the Water and Air in the World a clear winner of last year's Novartis/Daily Telegraph Visions of Science photographic awards.
The air I don't know. Air is what makes our atmosphere. Right. Oxygen levels are suceptable for change. I don't know if air is still air without the oxygen. Do you ?

That's an amazing reality check Kandinsky.
At first I thought it was about fresh water. But all water is not so much together as I thought.
Still all that water is part of a recycle system. Apperently this all the Earth needs.
