All Of Earth's Water In A Single Sphere This picture shows the size of a sphere that would contain all of Earth's water in comparison to the size of the Earth. The diameter would be roughly the distance from Salt Lake City, Utah to Topeka, Kansas.
"Compared to Jupiter’s moon Europa, our planet is practically a desert, as this NASA image shows. It’s a computer visualization showing Europa and a dried-out Earth, with the volume of all their water represented by blue spheres.
Earth’s Gravitational Field - The Potsdam Gravity Potato High areas on this map, colored red, indicate areas where gravity is slightly stronger than usual, while in blue areas gravity is slightly weaker.
This graphic presents a view of Pluto and Charon as they would appear if placed slightly above Earth's surface and viewed from a great distance. Recent measurements obtained by New Horizons indicate that Pluto has a diameter of 2370 km,.

NASA has proclaimed this image the MOST amazing high definition image of Earth ever. This ‘Blue Marble’ image of the Earth was taken from the VIIRS instrument aboard NASA’s most recently launched Earth-observing satellite – Suomi NPP.
This magnificent image is a portrait of the Earth taken in one single shot. At 121 megapixels, it is the highest resolution image of the planet ever and was taken by the geostationary Russian weather satellite the Electro-L.
