Earth is the third planet from the sun in our solar system. It formed 4.6 billion years ago when a spinning cloud of gas and dust condensed into multiple spheres due to gravity. One of them was Earth. At the center of this spinning disk, the Sun formed and the eight planets of our solar system followed quickly afterwards. Earth is currently the only planet known to support life. The entire history of Earth can be found on the page Geologic Time Scale.
