Water On Earth Did Not Form On Its Own. It Was Sucked From Space

A study published in the journal Nature has revealed that water on Earth did not form on its own but was instead acquired from outer space.

Scientists have made a surprising discovery that suggests the Earth might have formed more quickly than previously believed.

It appears that tiny millimeter-sized pebbles coming together could have led to the accumulation of Earth in just a few million years.

In contrast to long-standing theories proposing a formation time of over 50-100 million years, researchers estimate that the presence of water on Earth is a result of its formation.

The recent study challenges conventional ideas and introduces a mechanism where the Earth rapidly formed through the accumulation of small pebbles. This finding implies that water is a byproduct of Earth’s formation.

Martin Bizzarro, one of the researchers involved in the study, explains, “We show that the Earth formed by the very fast accumulation of small millimeter-sized pebbles. In this mechanism, the Earth was formed in just a few million years. Based on our findings, it appears that the presence of water on Earth is a byproduct of its formation.”

According to a study published in the journal Nature Geoscience, Earth once had just 19-hour-long days due to the presence of the Moon.

    Does that mean that our planet, that’s named after dirt, sucks?
