The thickness of earth's crust is 30 - 40 km.
Orbit time 28 days.
Distance 356 000 to 407 000 km.
The moons radius is 1/4 of the earths and the mass 1/8.
The sun consists of hydrogen (82%) and helium (17%). Its radiator has increast by 30% the last 3 bilion years.
If the earth was situated in the center of the sun, the moon would orbit a little more than half way to suns surface - thats how big the sun is.

The salt content of the Baltic Sea is 0.8%.
A mixture of 78% nitrogen, 20.8% oxygen and 9% argon.
If air were like water it would only be 10 m deep.
The carbon dioxide content has increased from 0.088% in 1800, 0.029% in 1900, 0.031% in 1950 to 0.035% in 1990.
