The time when light reaches our eyes:
The light we see in our eyes is the result of photons from the sun. After these photon particles originate in the center of the Sun, it takes about 160,000 years for the surface of the Sun to reach the surface. And it takes only 6 minutes to come to our eyes from that surface. This means that the light we see now was created inside the sun more than 200,000 years ago. And now what is being created would have to wait another two hundred thousand years to reach the earth.

We have a total of 32 crore cubic miles of water in all the oceans of the world. This water occupies 81 percent of our world.

Now the way our Antarctica is covered under ice, everything will be covered under the wheels of deeper salt.
