Why is the atmosphere essential for life?


The atmosphere covers the Earth like a blanket that protects us from harmful UV radiation coming from the sun. It keeps the average temperature of the Earth fairly steady during the day and even the whole year. It prevents the sudden increase in temperature during the daytime and slows down the escape of heat into outer space during the night. If there were no atmosphere around Earth, the temperature increase during the day and decrease during the night. The gases which are essential for the survival of life, like oxygen, are present in the atmosphere.
