Some information about our planet

Our planet is the third farthest from the Sun and the fifth largest planet in the Solar System. It is the only world with liquid water on the surface, and also the only world in which life (known so far) exists.. The land is slightly larger than its neighbour Venus It is the largest of the four planets (all made of rock and metal) in the inner solar system. The planets, except Earth, bear the names of Greek and Roman gods. but, Earth is a Germanic wordWhich simply means “Earth” (it is at least 1000 years old). The vast oceans served as a “cradle” for the evolution of life about 3.8 billion years ago.

With a radius of 6,371 km, Earth is the largest of the terrestrial planets and the fifth largest in the solar system. Earth is exactly one astronomical unit (150 million km) away from us. Shoe This unit is defined exactly like the distance between the Earth and the Sun. It takes light from the Sun about eight minutes, traveling at about 300,000 kilometers per second, to reach our planet. When the solar system settled into its current configuration, about 4.5 billion years ago, Earth formed thanks to gravity collecting gas and dust. Like other terrestrial planets, our planet has… A central core, a rocky mantle, and a solid crust.
