What is Earth worth?

Michael Stevens, from Vsauce, asks: what is Earth worth? Well, Earth could be valued at 5 quadrillion dollars or at 7 quadrillion dollars, based on the resources on it. If we would to sell the entire planet Earth, what is on it and in it, based on the chemicals it contains then Earth would be valued at 15,8 sextillion dollars.

A fun fact: in 1300 years Earth travels 1 light-year through the Galaxy. But if we would to value Earth on the galactic markeplace, then it wouldn’t be that valuable. Maybe if we could sell Earth based on the technology and the civilizations are on it. That would fetch a better price 😀
