If humans suddenly disappeared, what would happen to our planet?

What would happen to the world without us supposing we disappeared for non-destructive reason (Like a nuclear war or so) would be very similar I believe to the following:*Humans just magically faded away or everysingle one of them falls death to the ground* 2 days after humans disappear

What would be the next dominant species on Earth if humans were to disappear, would this next animal adapt to use our technology or create its own?

Evolution is wonderfully unpredictable. A million years ago, if you were plopped down in Africa and asked which animal would soon become the dominant species, I pretty much guarantee you wouldn't have selected the soft little hominid with the big head and funny gait. So any answer you get is going to be highly speculative.The reason

How might all humans suddenly disappeared?

No one really knows, unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) and we'll never truly know. There's a variety of ways we could vanish from existence, although I doubt we'd nuke ourselves into oblivion.No, if we go out, it'll be a whimper, not a lot of bang.Here's hopefully a plausible scenario:Increasing nationalism

How would the earth change if all humans suddenly disappeared from the planet?

That question is already answered at the local level. In the Chernobyl zone, where passage is prohibited except in special cases, Nature has reclaimed the land in a few years. Trees have grown on the streets and sports fields, and wild animals have multiplied.Nature has a great power of recovery:

If humans suddenly disappeared, what would happen to our planet?

Trust me, if human beings suddenly disappeared from Earth, the planet would become a better place for the rest of the species. Initially there will be catastrophic events because of lack of human control but then in a couple of

If the earth exploded while an astronaut was in space how long could they reasonably survive?

It depends on how far the astronaut is from Earth, and what kind of supplies they have. An explosion powerful enough to destroy the Earth would probably destroy the ISS too. All humans currently in space are aboard the ISS.For a hypothetical astronaut much farther away, it would depend on what kind of life support system they

What would be the next dominant species on Earth if humans were to disappear, would this next animal adapt to use our technology or create its own?

Evolution is wonderfully unpredictable. A million years ago, if you were plopped down in Africa and asked which animal would soon become the dominant species, I pretty much guarantee you wouldn't have selected the soft little hominid with the big head and funny gait.

What would happen if water disappeared from the earth? Would we be able to survive by making water?

Every living thing on earth would die, since water is a large component of all known living cells, every plant, animal, fungus, etc would all dessicate completely, and crumble to dust.  With all water vapor gone from the atmosphere, the sky might change color,

What would happen on Earth if all humans suddenly disappeared tomorrow?

Well, if it was sudden then such an apocalyptic event would also affect every living thing. If it was a monumental mass abduction the biggest effect would be on domestic animals, who rely on humans to care for their needs.Many would be trapped in buildings and die of starvation

What would happen to man-made satellites if humans suddenly disappeared?

Telecommunications satellites are generally built to be disposable in that no one is going up and doing mechanical repairs on them.Low-earth orbit -- which are a few hundred to a thousand-plus kilometers up -- often are designed to re-enter the atmosphere and burn up after a handful of years. They also occasionally

What would happen to the other planets if the Earth disappeared?

Almost nothing.The moon would most like replace the earth as the third planet, remaining in solar orbit in an orbit fairly similar to earth's current one.Venus and Mars may experience a small perturbation of their orbits. And alterations in NEO asteroids may change the collision rates on these two worlds slightly.None of the other planets are likely to

Which species would benefit Earth if it were to go extinct?

I would have to nominate (Human Beings).36 Extinct Animals Lost to History Due to Human Activity100 million sharks killed each year, say scientists73 Million Sharks are Killed for Fin Soup Every Year! Take Action to Ban the Shark Fin

If the earth is rotating at a high speed and we jump up, why doesn't the earth move below us at high speed?

Since other answers have correctly mentioned the atmosphere and such, let's take it out of the equation for the sake of argument and see what happens.In terms of the difference in the helicopter's path vs. the ground, let's look at what happens during one whole day as

What would be your first thought and first thing to do, if you found out you were the last human on the earth?

I would be relieved....and overjoyed, no more humans to trash the planet...and no more of their bullshit...i would then find my way to a place i want to be ..somewhere warm and beautiful countryside and i would take a few things with me like

If the earth were to suddenly disappear, what would happen to the moon? Would it be captured by a neighbouring planet?

The orbital velocity of the Moon around the Earth is about 1 km/s. This is much less, than the orbital velocity of the Earth-Moon system around the Sun (30 km/s). Therefore the orbit of the Moon around the Sun, in case of sudden disappearance of the Earth, would be somewhat different

Is moon coming closer to the earth? What will happen if it comes too close?

On the other hand, right now, the Moon is slowly receding from us.At present, the Moon is on average 385,000 kilometers away and has reached this point after a long and eventful journey.The  Moon was born around 4.5 billion years ago in a massive collision between our planet and a Mars-sized object,

What if planet Earth had rings like planet Saturn?

Planetary rings (the rings around planets) can form due to the following conditions:·From the material of the proto-planetary disk,within the Roche limit of the planet which could not coalesce to form moon/moons·From the debris of a

What if the earth had no moon? How will this affect the tides in the ocean?

Tides is the result of the rotation of the Earth and whirlpools.The opening was published in the Russian-German scientific peer-reviewed journal "Eastern European Scientific Journal" No. 3/2015. 64. JuneJournalA positive review was also received from the Institute of Geography of the Russian Academy of Sciences.Forum SPbSU Faculty

What would happen if every single human on earth fell asleep for the next month?

We would all die, our pets would all die (larger dogs might live a bit longer, since they can drink from the toilet), a very large proportion of livestock (all penned livestock) would die, all zoo animals would die, infrastructure would collapse, snow would fill all the roads if it happened in

What would happen if the Earth stops moving for five minutes?

By earth I assume you mean the solid crust that we live on and which is spinning on its axis at over 1000 km/h near the equator.Moving with the earth is the molten lava under the crust and the water in the sea and lakes as well as the air. These would all keep

What would happen if the Moon fell to Earth, both immediately and over the long run?

If it just stopped orbiting and fell out of the sky, then the impact would release about 10^20 gigaJoules of energy, or 10^13 megatonnes of TNT.That is 4000000000x the total yield of all the World's nuclear weaponsIt is 1000x the energy released by the Chicxulub impact that is credited with the K-T extinction event (that wiped out

What would happen to the Earth if it had three moons equivalent to the size of our moon?

Actually, there is evidence to suggest that Earth has more than the single, lone Moon that we know and love. Granted, the other theoretical moons are far smaller, if they exist at all. Also, from time to time, certain objects may temporarily orbit the Earth, only to leave again.See: Claimed moons of Earth
