1.3 Million Earths
Think you know how big Earth is? If you guessed about 3,959 miles or 6,371 kilometers in radius, you’re right; but, relative to some of our outer space neighbors, what does that mean? Of the 9 commonly recognized planets, our home planet is 5th largest, only falling behind the massive Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune; but let’s look at El Sol for another comparison. It would take about 1.3 million Earths mushed together to recreate the size of the sun, which is approximately 108 times larger than Earth itself.
