Earth. Where life happens!

Get to know about Planet Earth.

EARTH

Earth is the planet of which humans, animals, plants, really any living organism, lives on earth. Earth is the 3rd planet from the sun, even though in the summer, it feels like were the closest! It is about 4.54 billion years old, so about as many followers Taylor Swift will have in 5 more years. It also weighs around 5.972E24 kg, but thanks to gravity we stay put. We also have a really cool night light, we call it a moon, and it appears when the sun goes away. It is our natural satellite. We get all of our oxygen from trees, that is also where we get our moneyy $$.

Seasons

On earth we have seasons like summer, winter, fall summer. We have seasons because of the tilt. What is a tilt you ask? The Earth's axis has a tilt of 23.5 degrees. This means that the Earth is always pointing to one side as it goes around the Sun, creating seasons.

Rotation and Revolution

It takes Earth 24 hours to make a complete rotation and takes 365 days to make a complete revolution around the sun.

Energy

In order for us to have all of our energy, we need carbohydrates. Which is fruits and vegetables. You can find these in, bananas, apples, honey, brown rice, etc.

Why are all the planets spherical?

Have you wondered why our Earth and all the other plants are spherical? Why aren't they pyramids? or a cube? It really is just because of gravity. All the atoms in an object pull towards a common center of gravity, and they’re resisted outwards by whatever force is holding them apart.
