Far-Out Guide to Earth

Series: Far-Out Guide to the Solar System

By Mary Kay Carson

Earth is the only planet in our solar system that is suitable for life. It has liquid water, oxygen, and enough gravity to hold its own atmosphere. But did you know that Earth is always changing? Scientists have used spacecraft and satellites to learn more about our planet. They can better predict natural disasters like hurricanes, and monitor volcano eruptions and climate changes. Learn lots of far-out facts about our home planet.
