Earth is the third planet from the Sun and the only object in the Universe known to harbor life. According to radiometric dating and other sources of evidence, Earth formed over 4.5 billion years ago. Earth's gravity interacts with other objects in space, especially the Sun and the Moon, Earth's only natural satellite. Earth revolves around the Sun in 365.26 days, a period known as an Earth year. During this time, Earth rotates about its axis about 366.26 times.
For naught so vile that on the earth doth live,
But to the earth some special good doth give.
William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet (1597), Act II, scene iii.
Earth below us
drifting, falling.
Floating weightless
calling, calling home...
Peter Schilling, song Major Tom (Coming Home) (1983).
What have we done to the world, look what we've done
What about all the peace that that you pledge your only son?
What about flowering fields, is there a time?
What about all the dreams that you said were yours and mine?
Did you ever stop to notice all the children dead from war?
Did you ever stop to notice the crying Earth, the weeping shores?
Michael Jackson, "Earth Song" (1995).
