  39. 39. Similarities between Earth and Mars • Mars and Earth orbits the Sun. • Mars and Earth is in the same Solar System. • The both planets is a terrestrial planet which made up of rock and metal. • The both has the same internal structure. The both planets have an inner core of metal surrounded by a mantle of rock. A thin crust covers the mantle.
  40. 40. Conclusion • Why can we only live on Earth?, Why not on the other planets? We are living on Earth because Earth is the best planet to sustain human life. Why is Earth the best planet to sustain human life? Earth is the perfect planet to sustain human life because of some reasons. One of them is because of Earth’s atmosphere. Earth’s atmosphere contains enough oxygen (air) for humans to live, other planet’s atmosphere contains not as much oxygen as Our Earth’s atmosphere, it’s usually contains other gases such as methane, helium, hydrogen, carbon dioxide and many other gases. Second, The distance of Earth and the Sun, it isn’t too far or even too close and the distance between Earth and the Sun affects our surface temperature. Earth’s temperature is just right for humans to live, it’s not too hot or even too cold. Some of the other planets have extreme surface temperature either it’s too hot or it’s cold! Also, Earth contains a lot of water, 70% of Earth’s surface is water. Earth is often called the “Water Planet” because it’s the ONLY planet in our Solar System which has liquid water on its surface. “There’s no place like home”
