Welcome to Earth

Description

We’ve reached our home – Earth! The only known planet to support life, 70% of Earth’s surface is covered in water which helps to sustain life here. If you think about the pale blue dot we live on, it’s pretty amazing! Our changing seasons, the life that existed in the past and all the wonderous discoveries still to be made. Our precious Earth is home to an incredible diversity of life and it’s the only home we know and so it is very important we all take steps to protect it, such as doing more walking like we are doing now!

Distance: Earth is 149.6 million km away from the sun!
