Earth Day Special Edition: Earth as a planet


Today’s Video of the Day is a special Earth Day edition and comes thanks to the European Space Agency’s Euronews series. The clip takes a deep dive into the only planet we know as capable of supporting life: Earth.

Planet Earth sits 149.6 million kilometers away from the sun and is roughly 4.5 billion years old. Unlike Mars or Venus, Earth has the perfect atmospheric conditions that allow water to flow on its surface, which is vital to the existence of life.
