All the Water and Air on Earth Gathered Into Spheres and Compared to Earth

Pretty cool image and what I'm being told is that its pretty accurate as well.

Left: All the water in the world (1.4087 billion cubic kilometres of it) including sea water, ice, lakes, rivers, ground water, clouds, etc.
Right: All the air in the atmosphere (5140 trillion tonnes of it) gathered into a ball at sea-level density. Shown on the same scale as the Earth.
