Water on planets farther away from the sun would freeze in the extreme cold. In all three states, but especially as a liquid, water helps to keep Earth’s temperature moderate. Unlike land, which heats up quickly in the sun but cools off just as fast at night, water absorbs the sun’s heat slowly and stores it for a long time before returning it to the air.
