Paragraph? For some reason I don't even see a link to the site.

Great compilation of statistics, a bit worrisome that it's "Procuded" by a "Childcare and early learning" company.

I thought that the dryiest place on Earth was the Atacama desert and not the Antarctica.
"Up to 1 millon species live in the world's oceans and 2/3 have yet to be described" then 3 bubbles are showed with one with an interrogation mark instead of 2. :)

There is a town in Pennsylvania that was evacuated due to a coal mine being set on fire and has been burning for over 50 years, I'm surprised that they missed that.

I had read about the underground fire in Centralia Pennsylvania, it is one of the most dangerous toxic ghost towns in the world. http://io9.com/10-of-the-worlds-most...wns-1552144947

Btw, the earth magnetosphere I think should be included in the fact sheet about earth. And that auroras is dazzling, but it's a manifestation that the magnetosphere is failing some of the times to do what it is supposed to do.
