Mount Everest seems to have grown since the last time we measured it
No, mountains do not precisely have growth spurts, so if Mount Everest is taller now, it is probably due to the tools we are using. Changes in technology have allowed experts to determine its height more accurately, which accounts for the changes.
Surveyors from China and Nepal used cutting-edge GPS devices to determine the massive peak’s proper height. It now stands at a mind-blowing 29,031.69 feet. Previous measurements ranged from 29,002 to 20,029 feet above sea level.
