From The Stargate Omnipedia


The first world where human beings thrived, also known as the home of the Tau'ri. The planet was home to the Ancients several million years ago, before they left the planet with their great city -- Atlantis -- between five and 10 million years ago and headed for the Pegasus Galaxy. Earth is now home to more than 7 billion humans, who are increasingly making their presence felt in the Milky Way Galaxy through increasing gate travel and interstellar travel.

Ra and the Goa'uld discovered Earth some 10 thousand years ago and captured a number of primitive humans, transplanting them throughout the galaxy in ships and through the Stargate -- seeding human life on numerous other world.

Several thousand years ago, the peoples of Earth organized a rebellion. The Stargate was buried, and Ra's Jaffa were overthrown. The Stargate was unearthed in 1928 in Giza, Egypt, and now operates from Stargate Command inside Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado.

The Ancient word for Earth is "Terra."
