Who owns the most land on Earth? ...
The Queen of England legally owns about one-sixth of all of the land on Earth.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Queen Elizabeth II of England legally owns the most land on Earth—as leader of 32 countries, the Queen is owner of 6.6 billion acres of land, or about one-sixth of the entire land surface on Earth. The land ownership is the largest empire in history and dates back to the Norman Conquest of 1066. This established the feudal state, in which an inherited monarch retains ownership of land that is passed down generationally. Among the land that is owned by Queen Elizabeth II are the second and third largest countries in the world: Australia combined with its Antarctic territories, and Canada.

How deep is the ocean? ...
The Earth's oceans are among the most mysterious places
on the planet, but scientists now have at least figured out
how deep the oceans are and just how much water they hold.

A group of scientists used satellite measurements to get new estimates
of these values, which turned out to be 0.3 billion cubic miles
(1.332 billion cubic kilometers) for the volume of the oceans
and 12,080.7 feet (3,682.2 meters) for the average ocean depth.

U.S. Hiram Bingham, The real Indiana Jones, 1911 “Hiram Bingham (1875–1956) was an American academic, explorer and treasure hunter and politician. He obtained a B.A. from Yale University and a PhD from Harvard. Bingham was not a trained archaeologist, yet it was during Bingham’s time as a lecturer – later professor – at Yale that he discovered the largely forgotten Inca city of Machu Picchu.

How high can birds fly? ...

The highest flying bird recorded is a Ruppell's griffon vulture,
flying at commercial flight heights, close to 40,000 feet (11 km).
The bird collided with a plane in 1975 and did not survive.

Hi Tater! wave
Rüppell's vulture is named in honor of Eduard Rüppell,
a 19th-century German explorer, collector, and zoologist.

Wilhelm Peter Eduard Simon Rüppell (20 November 1794 - 10 December 1884) was a German naturalist and explorer. Rüppell is occasionally transliterated to "Rueppell" for the English alphabet.

Rüppell was born at Frankfurt-on-Main, the son of a very prosperous banker. He was originally destined to be a merchant, but after a visit to Sinai in 1817 he developed an interest in natural history. He attended lectures at the University of Pavia and University of Genoa in botany and zoology.

Rüppell set off on his first expedition in 1821, accompanied by surgeon Michael Hey as his assistant. They travelled through the Sinai desert, and in 1822 were the first European explorers to reach the Gulf of Aqaba. They then proceeded to Alexandria via Mount Sinai. In 1823 they travelled up the Nile to Nubia, collecting specimens in the area south of Ambukol, returning to Cairo in July 1825. A planned journey through Ethiopia only reached as far as Massawa, where the party suffered ill health.

Rüppell returned to Europe in 1827. During his absence Philipp Jakob Cretzschmar had used specimens sent back by Rüppell to produce the Atlas zu der Reise im nordlichen Afrika (Atlas of Travels in northern Africa) (1826).

In 1830 Rüppell returned to Africa, and became the first naturalist to traverse Ethiopia.
Rüppell also published an account of his travels, entitled, Travels in Abyssinia.

He was probably flying at 20 or 30 miles an hour. The plane was probably going at least several hundred miles an hour. Chances are the airplane hit him!
