What is the main source of energy for living things on Earth?

The sun, center of our planetary system and star of the milky way galaxy (our galaxy), is the source of the energy that is processed and consumed by living beings. Intense nuclear reactions in the sun liberate light and other energetic radiations into the surrounding space. Some of this energy reaches our planet

What is the three ways in which Earth moves in space?

Discounting Earth's rotation, and wobble in that rotation, there are at least 4 other known motions: 1. Earth's orbit around the sun - 30 kilometers per second ( 66,700 MPH) 2. The Solar System's orbit around the center of the Milky Way Galaxy - 210 km/ second ( 470,000 MPH) 3. The Milky Way's movement towards the Andromeda Galaxy ~ 450 km/ second (1 million MPH) 4. The Local Group of Galaxies (which includes both the Milky Way and Andromeda Galaxies) in the direction of the Constellation Virgo (towards an Unknown attractor) ~ 600 km/ second (1.3 million MPH)

If the earth did not rotate would there be day and night on earth?

yes there will but one side of the earth will have night forever and the other side will have day for ever.No because it impossible. it would only be seasons .I'm improving on your answer. . .actually we are a part of a galaxy called the milky way. The earth sits on a spiral arm as well as the sun in the galaxy. If you lookat a hurricane. . .it is the shape of a galaxy with the 'eye' in the center. The plane of the Milky Way is inclined by about 60° to the ecliptic. The center of course is described as a massive black hole. The fact that the Milky Way divides the night sky into two roughly equal hemispheres indicates that the Solar System lies close to the galactic plane. Hense, you have the galaxy itself giving you night and day and not the rotation of the earth itself. This information came from wikipedia org.So the question still is. . .does the earth rotate? I think we have seen it stop on a dime and it wobbles. . .but this wobble in and of itself hasn't proved that is rotatestoo. Although it's been described as a spinning top. Also if the sun is on a different galatic arm . . .it may mean that the earth doesn't circle exactly around the sun.

Describe characteristics of the universe in terms of time distance and organization?

Organization: The part of the universe closest to Earth is the solar system. This system compromises of Earth, the sun and other planets. But also smaller objects like dwarf planets, asteroids, and comets. The solar system is part of a galaxy (an assembly of stars dust and gases which are brought together by gravity). The galaxy where the solar system is, is the Milky Way galaxy. Past the Milky Way galaxy, there are many more galaxies. Time/Distance: The universe is mostly measured in astronomical units since the units used on Earth are too small to measure the universe. An astronomical unit ,Au, is the average distance between the Earth and the sun. This is about 149,597,870.691 km or 150 million km. They also use the speed of light to measure distance. Light moves at 300,000 km/s. In a year light travels 9.46 × 1012 km. The distance is a light-year.

Group of billions of stars is called what?

A galaxy. Our Milky Way galaxy is home to billions of stars, our sun being one of them. To make you feel even smaller, there are billions of galaxies of all shapes and sizes. It is said that a galaxy more than likely has to be shaped a certain way in order to sustain life. This could be a requirement due to the gravitational center all galaxies have called a Black Hole. Yes- even at the center of the Milky Way lies a hungry Black Hole. The forces of all the stars and planents and other bodies counter the effects of the Black Hole keeping us in our perfect spot near the edge. But NOT TOO close to the edge to be subject to stellar masses that could smash us apart. -- Yea this Earth is pretty special, and quite lucky!
