Earth is just one planet in billions — but it's ours and there's no getting away from it (or not without a serious spacecraft).

We live on Earth and Earth lives in space. It's not a cosy little home — it goes on and on and on and on, but it's full of amazing things.

Our planet — we can't live without it. But sometimes it's a bit, well, boisterous. Or naughty. But planets will be planets. Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, floods, wildfires, extreme weather — it's all part of what you signed up for by being born on Earth rather than as some multi-pronged alien on a distant exoplanet.​

Much older than the other books on the site, but I've kept it here because I love it. Super CGI images of the insides of Earth and a huge poster to put on your wall!
