Celestial Buddy: Earth (lg): Our Precious Planet
Our Precious Planet is a larger (nine inch diameter) more detailed version of Earth.
Earth…is good natured and a true blue friend! Earth is our home and currently the only planet in the Universe where life is known to exist.
I am home to millions of different forms of life including bacteria, animals, plants and you humans. At present I am the only place in the Universe where any kind of life, simple or complex, is known to exist. About 71% of my surface is covered with water, giving me my characteristic blue appearance from space. This presence and abundance of liquid water makes me unique compared to my planetary neighbors. Liquid water is a fundamental element for life. as we know it, to exist.
