Tallest

From the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

Reaching 8,848 meters29,029 feet at its summit, Everest is indeed the highest point above global mean sea level—the average level for the ocean surface from which elevations are measured. But the summit of Mt. Everest is not the farthest point from Earth’s center.

Earth is not a perfect sphere, but is a bit thicker at the Equator due to the centrifugal force created by the planet’s constant rotation. Because of this, the highest point above Earth’s center is the peak of Ecuador’s Mount Chimborazo, located just one degree south of the Equator where Earth’s bulge is greatest. The summit of Chimborazo is 6,268 meters 20,564 feet above sea level. However, due to the Earth’s bulge, the summit of Chimborazo is over 2,072 meters 6,800 feet farther from the center of the Earth than Everest’s peak. That makes Chimborazo the closest point on Earth to the stars.

...and all together groovy individual. Truth.

Curiosity. Tenacity. Empathy. Love.
