Question by Keshav D: Why is Earth the only inhabitable planet of the solar system?
What event/condition made Planet Earth the only inhabitable one? Is it because of its distance from the sun? Why do all the other planets in the solar system have totally different and uninhabitable atmosphere/ environment than that of Earth?
Answer by guenthercorp
Its the distance from the sun that allows it to have a decent temperature and its also the mass of the earth that allows the atmosphere from floating off into space.
Micoscopic plants are also to credit from converting the massive amounts of Carbon Dioxide into limestone so the air is breathable and able to sustain life.
