The Earth without water or atmosphere … and Mauna Kea #TBT

Posted By on February 3, 2022


We rarely think about that which we cannot see … but saw a photo of the earth without water or the normal colors associated with having an atmosphere on social media and thought it was intriguing.


Another comment that was made was that “IF” you were to stand on Mauna Kea in Hawaii without water, "it would be the “tallest mountain in the world, from its undersea base” (and as an excuse to make this a Throwback Thursday #TBT post, we did see it: 1, 2, 3, 4). I think I want to go back to visit again.
