Planet Earth
Catalog > Planet Earth

Third planet from the star, Sol. There is one moon, Luna.

There are 6 or 7 Billion people living on the planet, which has around 200 countries governed by 200 heads of state, with many types of governments. There are 6500 different languages.

Historical and recent suggestions and reports of sightings and other interactions from citizens and military with other worlds are explained away as natural phenomena or mental illusions.

The more powerful countries aspire to conquer space but then maintain that it is inconceivable that there is life on other planets around other stars.

As far as they were concerned, the people of Earth were the only intelligent beings in the universe.

They were wrong.

"All of human history has happened on that tiny pixel," shown here inside a blue circle, "which is our only home" (Carl Sagan, speech at Cornell University, October 13, 1994)

 

Reflections on a Pale Blue Dot - Carl Sagan:

From this distant vantage point, the Earth might not seem of any particular interest. But for us, it's different. Consider again that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity – in all this vastness – there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known, so far, to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment, the Earth is where we make our stand. It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.

 

 

Our story begins in the beautiful library of a university in northern Arizona.

Planet Earth, Sol Star System
Planet Earth, Sol Star System

Earth is the third planet of the star Sol. 

From the initial observations of planets now visited by the newly formed Planetary League of the Ancients, it seems apparent that sample groups of many of Earth major cultural groups are to be found on various planets of relatively nearby stars, perhaps to observe over the millennia how societies evolve without the contamination of other cultures and languages.

Earth, or Terra as it is called on the official records of the League, is the third of the five charter members, along with Arran, Daga, Mars, and Sukunka, of Cor (Procyon).

Most of the people of Earth, however, know nothing of the Planetary League and many scientists and government agencies continue to try to disprove the likelihood of interstellar travel.

The is the home world of all the men of Arran, including Oriana's father, Angus, as well as many other characters in the stories.
