Yesterday, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) posted the following as the Astronomy Picture of the Day.
The official explanation is that this picture is an abstract conceptualization of the amount of water that’s spread over the surface of the Earth, showing what it would look like if all the water was gathered into a single gigantic ball of water, placed on top of the American midwest.
Of course, this is a wide-angle view from far away. Close up, here’s what it would really look like if all the water on Earth was gathered into a single giant ball, placed where the NASA image has indicated.
Enquiring minds want to know: Why is NASA devoting its resources to planning for the sucking of all the water on our planet into a giant ball that will go rolling across the Great Plains into St. Louis? It’s almost as if all those government scientists know something that we don’t know…
…or are planning something. Watch this space for more updates… at least until the giant rolling ball of water reaches us.
