What’s Stacked Up In A Pile In The Grand Canyon Is Seriously Crazy. How Is This Possible?


Think of everyone that is currently alive on Earth. That is 7.2 billion people. We have caused wars, climate change and countless other large-scale events. Now, what do you think 7.2 billion people would look like all in one place. (You would think a race capable of doing such important things would look pretty impressive.) The Vsauce video channel decided to do an experiment and estimate what the world’s population would look like all in one place like the Grand Canyon. The result was not what we expected.

The 7.2 BILLION people on Earth would only form this small pile in the Grand Canyon.

Billions of people don’t even come close to filling the Grand Canyon. In fact, the world’s population only creates a small pile. If you took all of humanity throughout history (an estimated 106 billion) and put them in the Grand Canyon, it would only make 15 piles across the landmark and wouldn’t even fill it completely. The graphic is based on data visualization blogger Eesmyal Santos-Brault ’s work. If this fun fact interested you, then watch How Many Things Are There on the Vsauce YouTube channel. Your brain will hurt after this.
