Earth has some pretty severe weather — hurricanes, earthquakes, and tsunamis can be devastating — but we’re better off living here than on other planets.
Earth’s worst storms are nothing compared to the sulfuric acid rain on Venus, towering dust devils on Mars, or supersonic winds on Neptune.
Watch the video above to see how good we have it here on Earth.
The following is a transcript of the video.
Sulfuric acid raining from the sky. Epic dust storms raging for months on end. And giant hurricanes that could swallow Earth whole. If you think Earth has some bad weather, think again.
Now Mercury has little to no atmosphere, and therefore, no real weather to speak of. But you would feel the full brunt from the most powerful storms in our solar system called coronal mass ejections. These explosive storms form on the Sun and bathe Mercury’s surface in high-energy radiation. So if the lack of oxygen and extreme temperatures don’t kill you, the radiation certainly will.
This isn’t as much of a problem on Venus, however. After all, the entire planet is covered with clouds. Bad news is, they’re toxic. These clouds rain sulfuric acid …read more
