Earth is shaped like a ball. It is not a flat land, as we see it, when we stand on the street or in the meadow. This ball is flying through space around the Sun. You might ask, “why don’t we fall into this dark space?” The answer is because of gravity. Gravity is a power which holds us on the Earth. “And what protects us from space?” – “It is the atmosphere”. Clouds form part of this atmosphere. And now, let’s leave the Earth by clicking on the space we are flying through to have a look at Our Solar System.
