Earth vs its water and air

IFL Science has posted on their Facebook page a great image concept of Earth with its water and atmospheres depicted as spheres. The water and the air are tiny compared with Earth, but the scale couldn’t be better visualized.

Earth has a radius of 6371 km and a volume of 1,083×10^12 km^3. The water would have a volume of 1.332×10^9 km^3 and the air about 4×10^9 km^9.
