Analyzing data from GPS satellites, scientists say the Earth may be heavier than previously thought. Which raises several questions for me:
- You mean, somebody actually weighed the earth? How accurate can that be?
- Does the Earth need to go on a diet? How heavy is too heavy? Would Jupiter be considered obese?
- In light of the Earth’s additional weight, is there anything about my everyday life that I should change? Like pouring extra soda onto the ground?
