Many things in the universe happen for a reason. Our planet has been around for 4 and a half billion years. The Earth spins around itself as well as around the sun. We’re talking about a speed of more than 100 000 km per hour! This greatly influences whether life on Earth is possible or not.

That is only the beginning! Watch this.
