04 Earth

Third from the sun, we call this planet our home. It orbits the sun at just the right distance to contain life as we know it. Earth is not too hot or too cold. It's just right.

NAMING

"Earth" comes from the Old English word eorthe and German word erde.

FUN FACTS

Different from any other planet, Earth is 70 percent covered in oceans.

 

Our atmosphere is made of 78 percent nitrogen, 21 percent oxygen, and 1 percent other ingredients.

 

Tilted at 23.45°, Earth's rotation on its axis causes our four seasons.
