Earth is the third planet from the Sun and the only known inhabited planet in the observable universe. Earth is also the densest planet in our Solar system and the largest planet of all the rocky terrestrials. About 70% of Earth's surface is covered in liquid water, a trait deemed necessary for life as we know it.

In our model, Earth has been shrunk down to a mere half inch in diameter, just about the size of a dime. 

Earth is one of the four terrestrial planets and thus made up of hard, rocky materials.
