Highest, Tallest, and Closest to the Stars


Fans of planet Earth probably recognize its highest mountain, the Himalayan Mount Everest, on the left in this 3-panel skyscape of The World at Night. Shrouded in cloud Everest’s peak is at 8,848 meters (29,029 feet) elevation above sea level. In the middle panel, stars trail above volcanic Mauna Kea forming part of the island of Hawaii. Festooned with astronomical observatories, its summit lies a mere 4,168 meters above sea level. Still, measured from its base starting below the ocean’s surface, Mauna Kea is over 10,000 meters tall, making it Earth’s tallest mountain from base to summit. At right, beneath the arc of the Milky Way is the Andean mountain Chimborazo in Ecuador. The highest equatorial mountain, the Chimborazo volcano’s peak elevation is 6,268 meters above sea level. But rotating planet Earth is a flattened sphere (oblate spheroid) in shape, its equatorial diameter greater than its diameter measured pole to pole. Sitting nearly on top of Earth’s greatest equatorial bulge, Chimborazo’s peak is the farthest point on the planet’s surface from the center, over 2,000 meters farther from the center of the Earth than Everest’s peak. That makes Chimborazo’s summit the place on Earth’s surface closest to the stars.

One thought on “Highest, Tallest, and Closest to the Stars

  1. Bridget McCormack could possibly be thanking Facebook for her winning seat on the Michigan Supreme Court.
    To the end of her project, she invested majority of her advertising budget plan on Facebook.

    McCormack ran a “non-partisan” portion on the ballet, which often is overlooked by voters.
    With a week till surveys, she required to do something, so she relied on social media sites.

    There is really little that is truly complimentary and this is extremely true with webhosting
    business. You enter the door inexpensively however exactly what happens later?
    Your bandwidth is too limited; you encounter problems and cannot get support.
    Your site goes down. What is that worth? Lack of proper support,
    which is costly, is one way they make up for the lower price at the start.

    In most cases, the advertisement sales representative will be nervous to tell you
    the specials they have offered. Ask if they do not offer.
    You might feel unpleasant, however it’s OKAY to request a savings.
    That’s how advertisement agencies get excellent pricing for their clients.

    Video marketing – Video marketing is probably the most effective method of complimentary
    marketing on the web. There are actually hundreds of video sharing websites.
    If you shoot a video sharing valuable material and spread it throughout the internet you are visiting a source of never ending traffic
    to your website.
    Any individual with a web site can earn money with affiliate programs and advertisements.
    You do not need to have a big or especially renowneded internet site to obtain big name ads.
    But it is easier. You have to start with smaller sized marketers if you have a smaller sized site, but you can still begin developing advertising
    revenue, even when your website is still unidentified.

    Offer freebies that are branded with your company and submit those
    giveaways to the internet marketing sites that advertise those
    type of deals. For example, if it’s a wallpaper, send it
    to websites that offer free wallpapers. There
    are a lot of various sites out there that offer ebooks, short articles, and
    giveaways you can submit to.
    Anticipating immediate results with SEO will certainly lead you
    to making a great deal of unnecessary mistakes.
    Persistence is a has to for SEO. You will be rewarded with long term traffic.
    Are you ready to hit the very first page for keywords that get countless searches per
    month? You need to be ready to develop links, develop unique material and put in the time
    to have everything in place, then you can just forget getting ranked for any keyword.

    So what does this mean for the industry?
    Has the end finally come and the entire industry has now been shot
    to you understand exactly what as the standard tattoo artist would state?
    Or is this simply all terrific for company and we should just pocket the cash and run to the bank and not stress over the creative value of the piece or perhaps if the consumer should actually
    be getting a tattoo done or not?
