We obviously know more about Earth than any of the other planets. Earth is the largest of the four terrestrial planets, the other terrestrial planets being Mercury, Venus, and Mars. By terrestrial planet, we mean that Earth has a hard rocky surface. The composition of the Earth is similar to other terrestrial planets in that it has an iron-core which is surrounded by a molten mantle which, in turn, is surrounded by an outer crust. We live on top of the crust.
Earth is Different, there are many things that make Earth unique among the Solar System’s planets. First, Earth is the only planet that we know of that contains life. Not only does earth contain life, but it supports millions of different forms of life. Another difference is that the Earth is mostly covered with water. Around 71% of the Earth is covered with salt water oceans. Earth is the only planet that has water in liquid form on its surface. Also, the Earth’s atmosphere is made up of mostly nitrogen and oxygen while Venus’ and Mars’ atmospheres are made up mostly of carbon dioxide.
The earth has seven large land masses called continents. The continents include Africa, Asia, North America, South America, Europe, Oceania, and Antarctica. It also has 5 major bodies of water called oceans including the Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Southern, and Arctic oceans. The highest point above sea level on Earth is Mount Everest and the lowest point is the Mariana Trench.
The Earth is composed of a number of layers. On the outside is a rocky layer called the Earth’s crust. Below this is the mantle followed by the outer core and the inner core. Planet Earth is made up of a number of elements. The central core of the Earth is made of mostly iron and nickel. The outer crust of the earth consists of a number of elements. The most abundant are oxygen (46%), silicon (27.7%), aluminium (8.1%), iron (5%), and calcium (3.6%)
When I was in England and going to school I had quite a lot of friends and one of my best friends was Ben. We haven’t really talked since I have left but that has changed. Two days ago George on of my other friends called me and we called for at least an hour and then he had to go and the ben phoned me. I answered and we talked for about an hour. We had kind of become close friends again so we said that we would call each other again the next day! So we did and from that day we have been calling each other every night and I am quite liking it. He is not going to the same high school as me though but we are still gonna meet up. I am really happy!
