Facts About Water
We already know water is essential to all living things. In fact, it's so important that our Earth is covered in 70 percent of this liquid. Plus, our own blood is made up of 83 percent water.
Where In the World is All this Water?
Most of Earth's water is found in the three largest oceans. These are the Pacific Ocean (the largest), the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian Ocean (the smallest).
The Pacific alone covers around 30 percent of our planet and has the deepest point known to man. The Mariana Trench sinks below the surface to a depth of 11,000 meters (36,000 feet)!
The second largest ocean is the Atlantic, which covers about 21 percent of Earth's surface. It derives its name from "Atlas" of Greek mythology and is also home to the Bermuda Triangle (which is believed to have "taken" many ships and air planes).
The third largest ocean is the Indian Ocean. It covers around 14 percent of our planet's surface.
Freaky Factoid: If you could fill a cube with just the water from the oceans, that cube would have to be 1,000 meters (621 miles) in length.
