The Earth is NOT round
…so it’s gravity ISN’T equal everywhere. The natural distributions of stuff in our planet aren’t even, despite what my damned lying calculus teachers claimed. However, the actual distribution is sorta pretty, so I thought I’d share. The different colours are indicative of local variations in our gravitational field due to all this lopsided stuff, which was measured pretty well by the GRACE satellite . Net result:
I know, right? SUPER HUGE LUMPY RAINBOW SPACE POTATO!
Science can be pretty fun, from time to time.
