What is the heaviest object on earth?


Iím surprised that the answers are focusing on man-made objects. My first thought is Ayers rock in Australia - known by its Aboriginal name of Uluru. Itís a single object of a uniform geological type, a sandstone slab formed under the ocean and now in the center of Australia, with definite boundaries - so it might be the heaviest discrete rock in the world.


The upper bound of its mass cannot be given because of its huge and unknown depth. It does have an iceberg-type profile. Here are some stats:

348 meters (1,141 feet) high
863 meters (2,831 feet) above sea level
3.6 km long (2.2 miles)
1.9 km wide (1.2 miles)
9.4 km (5.8 miles) circumference around the base

It may also be one of the weightiest cultural sites on Earth. Because itís not just a rock. Itís a sacred site with a powerful energy that visitors attest to. The aboriginal tribes of the area believe that Uluru was formed by ancestral beings during the Dreamtime. The rockís many caves and fissures contain ancient rock paintings depicting that time.


P.S. Iíve had a couple of comments about ďwhy not Mt. Everest?Ē Typically, mountains are not monoliths. Mountains comprise multiple rock strata that have been pushed up by plate tectonics. A couple of other comments told me about Mount Augustus in Western Australia. Iím not a geologist. I donít know if Uluru really is the most massive. It is the most impressive.
