Planet Earth is the third planet from the sun. The smallest distance
to the sun is 147.100.000 km. The mean distance is 149.597.870 km and
the biggest is 152.100.000 km. This is a result of the ellipsoid orbit
of the planet (as is the case for all other orbits in the solar system).Earth
travels around the sun in a year of 365,2418 days to be precise. It
spins around in one day of 23 hours and 56 minutes.(23,933 hr).

Ever seen a beautiful planet????
of the earth to the sun of 150 million km is important. It is the
reason that it is not to cold and not to hot to support life. On Mercury
for instance thrice as close to the sun it is far to hot; 400 degrees
Celsius. On Pluto, almost forty times further away in space it is
far to cold; minus 230 degrees Celsius. The
moderate conditions make it possible that liquid water is flowing
on our planet This could well be the main factor in our existence
Earth cam into being just like all the other planets. Big clouds of
dust and gas surrounding the young sun coagulated and shrunk into bigger
structures, the "planetesimalen" of tens to hundreds of km across. These
lumps collided as a result of the gravitational pull and in the end
it resulted in the nine planets we see today.
