How Old is Earth?
Well no one keeps track of how old Earth is, but Earth's Birthday is every October 23, and every Earth Day is every April 22. Anyways, Earth is 4.54 billion years old?! Earth life came 3.7 billion years ago. Wow, I feel so old now. Earth has a name, surprisingly, It is a common misconception that “Terra” is the internationally recognized scientific name of the planet, but in reality, Earth does not have an official international name. The standard English name of the planet, including in science, is “Earth”.
How Earth was Made
Formation. When the solar system settled into its current layout about 4.5 billion years ago, Earth formed when gravity pulled swirling gas and dust in to become the third planet from the Sun. Like its fellow terrestrial planets, Earth has a central core, a rocky mantle, and a solid crust.
