You might think you know everything there is to know about the awesome planet we live on but we bet we can blow your mind with some cool facts about Earth that you didn’t realize. Wait until you read some of these little known facts about the Earth that we came across in our research. We are almost positive that this list is going to leave you scratching your head and thinking that there is no way some of this stuff can be true. We had to double-check ourselves because some of these things simply don’t seem possible. Especially number 3 on the list.
10: Walking Rocks
Did you have any idea that rocks can walk? We didn’t until we came across research from Racetrack Playa in Death Valley. In this unusual place rocks are known to move from one spot to another. We aren’t just talking about pebbles either. Some of these rocks can weigh hundreds of pounds. How does this happen? The rocks are encrusted in ice and in combination with meltwater from the hills the rocks become ‘slick’ and when a strong breeze comes along the rock can move.
