Ever wondered how much the earth would go for if you could place it on a platter and sell it off?
Well, you don’t have to wonder anymore.
Treehugger recently shared a valuation of our planet and you’re going to want to sit down for this. The entire planet earth is said to be worth $5,000,000,000,000,000 or USD5 Quadrillion (RM20,940,000,000,000,000.00), making it among the most expensive planet in the solar system.
How was this calculated?
The valuation comes after assistant professor of astronomy and astrophysics from the University of California, Greg Laughlin, came up with a special formula to determine the value of the world.
The calculation is ‘less’ scientific but takes into account several factors including size, mass, temperature, age and other elements that relate to its ability to sustain life.
To showcase just how expensive earth is, Laughlin also estimated the value of Mars to be at $16,000 (RM67,024), whereas Venus is only worth 1 cent.
Though Laughlin shared that these numbers cannot be ‘applied’ in the real world, he hopes that it will inspire people to better appreciate the only ‘home’ we have.
So, let’s take care of it before someone tries to sell it off.
What would you do if you can sell off the planet for that much money? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
