What are 3 major seas?
The Seven Seas include the Arctic, North Atlantic, South Atlantic, North Pacific, South Pacific, Indian, and Southern Oceans. The exact origin of the phrase ‘Seven Seas’ is uncertain, although there are references in ancient literature that date back thousands of years.
Is the ocean surrounded by land?
In terms of geography, seas are smaller than oceans and are usually located where the land and ocean meet. Typically, seas are partially enclosed by land. Seas are found on the margins of the ocean and are partially enclosed by land.
Can you swim under an island?

Meanwhile, the population of Australia is ~25.5 million people (307.2 million more people live in United States).
Why is Australia upside down?
Originally Answered: Why is Australia upside down? Some people are really thick. On a Flat Earth there has to be an up side and a down side. Australia is located on the downside, making us upside down to the people on the top side of a place coined ‘Earth’.
Does Australia see the moon upside down?
In Australia, the Moon is “upside down” from the point of view of northern hemisphere viewers. We see a jolly man’s face in the full moon, while their guy looks a bit alarmed. The dark and light patches on the Moon’s surface are reminders of its hectic past.
Is Australia becoming hotter?
Australia is becoming hotter, and more prone to extreme heat, bushfires, droughts, floods and longer fire seasons because of climate change. Recent climate events such as extremely high temperatures and widespread drought have focused government and public attention on the impacts of climate change in Australia.
Can everyone see the moon at the same time?
Different countries see different phases of the Moon on the same day. Everyone sees the same phases of the Moon, but people south of the equator who face North to see the Moon when it is high in the sky will see the Moon upside down so that the reverse side is lit. The Moon goes around the Earth in a single day.
Why can you see the moon and sun at the same time?
The Moon moves around the Earth every month. The time it takes the Moon to rotate on its axis is the same time it takes to complete one trip (or “orbit”) around the Earth. This is why we always see the same side of the Moon. It also follows a similar path across the sky as the Sun.
Why can’t you see the moon every night?
When the moon is between the earth and the sun the side that is being lit is facing the Sun. We see its dark side, which means we are unable to see (or can barely detect) the moon in the night sky. This is called the “new moon cycle” and is considered the beginning of the moon’s phases.
Why does the moon not spin?
A changing orbit. Gravity from Earth pulls on the closest tidal bulge, trying to keep it aligned. This creates tidal friction that slows the moon’s rotation. Over time, the rotation was slowed enough that the moon’s orbit and rotation matched, and the same face became tidally locked, forever pointed toward Earth.
Why can the moon not support any form of life?
The moon does not have atmosphere like Earth to support life. Moreover there is no water and suitable temperature for sustaining life. 2. The gravitational pull of Moon is also very weak.
Can the earth’s core stop spinning?
It seems Earth’s core has stopped spinning! So much for fiction. The solid inner core turns only once every 120 years or so, relative to the rest of the planet. No one knows the real reason for field reversals.
