How Much Does The Earth Cost?

Astronomy teacher and astrophysicist Greg Laughlin at the University of California successfully devised a formula to calculate the total cost of Earth.

Calculating the cost of the neighboring planets viz: Mars and Venus allowed the scientists to emphasize the importance of the Earth in comparison to all the other planets present in the Solar System.

According to Greg, the earth is very expensive. He has estimated the value of the earth at 5 quadrillion dollars. They have made these calculations keeping in mind the cost of trees, rivers, oceans, natural resources, and precious stones.

Who Calculated Earth’s Value?

In the year 2009, NASA launched the Kepler spacecraft in Cape Canaveral to start its three-and-a-half-year mission. The moto behind was to find Earth-like planets in the space.

Greg Laughlin was the astrophysics professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz, during that time. And he was “completely energized” by that mission.

So, he calculated the costs of the other terrestrial planets and exoplanets. After that he shared his formula over one of his blogs for calculating.
