We might have learned in our school days in Science book that, Earth is Spherical in shape and flat at the poles. But this is not the fact how actually Earth is.
World news, articles and magazines describes our Earth is composed of water, ice, trees, buildings, vehicles and the surface. With all these composition, our living planet could not make its shape round or spherical. In fact, that would rarely be impossible.
Our scientist’s struggled lot to determine the actual shape of Earth and many predicted, recognized the size and shape with various inventions and discoveries associated with their laws and theories.
For simplicity and easier understanding, we visualized Earth as Sphere or Spherical in shape.
Scientists like Aristotle and other ancient Greek scholars in earlier days proposed that Earth was round in shape.
Later Sir Issac Newton proposed Earth was not round and it was spheroid (a sphere with squashed poles and bulged equator).
Studies went through and scientists from ESA, NASA, ISRO and others have proven its actual size and shape with recent techniques.
But, there are still people who think Earth is Sphere, because of its look as flat and curved surface. technique
However, Earth is neither spheroid nor round; its shape is uneven, since mass is distributed everywhere within the planet.
