Egypt – Will the Earth Swell or Shrink, and When Will It Lose Its Atmosphere?

(MENAFN– Yum 7)

Our blue planet is constantly undergoing tremendous changes, and although it has not been observed directly by humans since its inception, due to its very short lifespan compared to the age of the Earth, it can be scientifically evaluated.

According to the “Sputnik” website, our blue planet, like other planets in the solar system, is constantly receiving new objects from the solar system, such as dust or stones flying in space, small and large meteorites. Others, but the planet is losing gaseous gases from its atmosphere.

The journal Science ‘Live Science’ published a report in which this pin, which has occupied many scientists for decades, answered the question because this information would provide data on the future of the earth and the future of mankind.

The earth receives ‘gifts’ and the elements come out of it

According to a leading research scientist studying NASA’s gas leak at Langley, the continuous leakage of gases from our planet into space is reducing the size of the Earth, especially the atmosphere. Research Center in Virginia, World Guillaume Gronov, In this sense, the Earth does not ‘shrink too much’.

The planets, on the other hand, are formed by a continuous accumulation, i.e., when different types of space dust collide with the Earth, the size of the Earth increases further and further. After the formation of the Earth about 4.5 billion years ago, there was a small accumulation in the form of meteorites and asteroids that gathered the mass of the Earth, Kronov said.

But as soon as the planet is formed, another opposite process begins, called “escape from the atmosphere”, a process similar to Chrono’s evaporation, but on a different scale, and according to the world, oxygen, hydrogen and helium atoms absorb enough energy from the sun to escape from the atmosphere.

But by monitoring the rate at which meteorites fall, about 16,500 tons (15,000 metric tons) or about one and a half eiffel towers fall on the planet each year, increasing its mass, Kronov Live Science said.

Meanwhile, using satellite data, scientists have estimated the atmospheric leakage rate. “It’s like 82,700 tons (75,000 metric tons), which is 7.5 times the size of the Eiffel Tower,” Kronov said.

Scientists have estimated the amount of leaks from the atmosphere over the past 100 years, and according to Chrono, the Earth loses about 60,000 tons of atmosphere each year, meaning that the planet would lose its atmosphere about 5 billion years later. There is no way to update it.

However, on the other hand, other processes such as ocean and volcanic eruptions help to fill the Earth’s atmosphere. Thus, the total loss of the Earth’s atmosphere is about 3000 times more or about 15.4 trillion years earlier than it was before the Earth lost its atmosphere, “a hundred times more than the age of the universe”. To the scientist.
