We cannot measure the diameter of Earth inch by inch using rulers, and must somehow estimate the distance on Earth, Does anyone have any suggestions on what approach they use to measure the diameter of Earth? and how does this approach apply to measure the diameter of other planets?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks in advance for any suggestions
