Earth is a pretty miraculous place. It’s just the right distance from our Sun to host a wide range of lifeforms. If it were farther away, we would freeze. If it were closer (like Venus or Mercury), it would be uninhabitable. As far as we know, life exists nowhere else in our solar system. And life doesn’t just exist here; it’s exploded into millions of amazing species that live on land, in the water, and even in the air.
