Earth is the only planet so far to contain life. It has abundant oxygen and water. Right amount of greenhouse gases trap heat within the earth for the right temperature for life. The Earth’s geomagnetic field shields us from solar storms as well as cosmic waves. Earth’s partially molten iron core forms the geomagnetic field. The layers of atmospheric gases which stretch out to the great divide between Earth and space also act as a shield for earth by producing friction which burn out meteors and other space matter heading our way.
Earth is divided into the Lithosphere consisting of rocks, the Hydrosphere consisting of water, the Atmosphere, consisting of air, and the Biosphere, consisting of all the living organisms. Earth is also the only planet we know that has plate tectonics which act as a recycle bin for the Lithosphere. Occasionally, we see eclipses on Earth. It is actually due to the blocking of sunlight by the moon along its orbit around earth.
