How deep is the sahara? What's the physics behind sand sculptures? Do dunes move? Why are different sands different colours?

Is all life related?
All living organisms on earth are related. All of them. Every bacteria, tree, bird, snake, cat, dog, human.
LUA, or the last universal ancestor, lived between 3.5 and 3.8 billion years ago and, as far as we know, all life on earth descends from it. It was probably a very simple cell organism, with a cell membrane and a DNA ring. Side by side, it would not have looked much different to a current-day bacteria.
A study in 2010 by Walter Theobald of Brandeis University compared 23 proteins from 12 different species. Theobald took these proteins and, with the help of a computer simulation, determined that having a single common ancestor is 10 to the power of 2860 times more likely than having multiple ones. That’s not a typo. That’s a 1 with over 2000 zeroes after it. To put it in perspective, there are 10 to the power of 80 atoms in the universe (according to the latest estimates).

Fungi took 50 million years to evolve the ability to break down bark. During this period huge forests grew, lots of coal was formed (most of the coal we have today in fact) and the oxygen levels in the atmosphere reached 35%, which allowed the existence of giant arthropodes (like 10-foot long millipedes).
