Our Home Planet
Our home planet, Earth, is one of the eight planets in the Solar System. It has many unique features, for example, other planets were named after Greek or Roman deities while ‘earth’ is only a Germanic word meaning ‘the ground’. Besides, more than 70 percent of Earth’s surface is covered in water. The water resembles the blue color from space that distinguishes Earth from the rest, and thus, Earth is also called the “Blue Planet.” Furthermore, Earth is the only known habitable planet. The water together with its unique features makes Earth a hospitable environment for life. Connect to the MMIS to find them out.
