THE WORLD
(pronounced - wurld | wɜrld)
DEMONYMS Earthling, Terran, Terrestrial, Tellurian, Earthian, Earther, Earthican
The earth is the third planet from the sun, is the fifth-largest in our solar system and is believed to be over 4.8 billion years old. Around 29% of the earth’s surface is made up of land, while the rest is covered in water. It has a surface area of 509.6 million square kilometres or 197 million square miles.

The earth is the only planet in the solar system that is not named after a god. Instead, it is believed that the name is from the Anglo-Saxon word, erda, which means ground or soil. The earth is home to over 7 billion people, over 200 million LGBTQIA+ individuals, and seven continents.

  KEY FACTS

Some interesting facts about the earth:

  • The earth once had a supercontinent known as ‘Pangaea.’
  • The earth is spinning at 1 thousand miles (or1.6 thousand kilometres) per hour
  • The earth is electric, and there are about 6 thousand lightning flashes around the planet every minute
  • The seven continents in the world all start and end with the same letter, except Oceania
  • The Pacific Ocean is the largest in the world, followed by the Atlantic Ocean
