This is the Latest Rubber from Yin-he or Galaxy as is more commonly known.

The topsheet is very spinny and soft, and has outstanding touch and control.

Earth: Singing the harmonies of life in the solar system with its gentle beauty and wisdom.

"Earth" inverted rubber of Milky Way Co. is made from high quality rubber carefully selected by our engineers, and it boasts of the perfect balance between tackiness and elasticity. Made with meticulous craftsmanship, the top sheet is thinner than conventional
top sheets, thus effectively reducing the weight of the rubber and improving the "feel" when striking the ball. Developed for players whose playing style focuses on control, it is the pinnacle of artistry in table tennis."

Review for Galaxy Earth red @ max 36-38 hardness. Looks: Vacuum packed sheet like most of Galaxy products. This one came factory tuned with a layer of glue at the back. Orange sponge with semi transparent top sheet. Medium tacky rubber, ok maybe tackier then medium but not silly tacky like H2 original. Honestly was expecting softer feel out of the sponge but it does feel about 39 DHS scale. Even more surprising knowing that this is factory pre tuned rubber. Spin: Ok spin on most of the shots. Far away some problems do become apparent but for a 5$ to 10$ piece of rubber it would be silly to complain about it. Speed: Not bad at all considering the price. Plenty of it for most people. Most of regular shots have enough point scoring power. Instead of going in details about spin and speed of this rubber i would like to base this review on my perspective why is this a good rubber. In my opinion this is a Chinese Sriver or Mark. It has about same performance which is outdated by today's standards and it costs only a fraction of those two. It does not have the same feel like other two but end results are very similar. Speed will not be the issue for a developing players. It has good grip too so it is not only tacky spin (if you can call it that way). Not a mayor stroke change from any mid line rubber. If you are developing player working on your technique you most likely dont need anything faster or spinier then this. The biggest reward you will get from this rubber is SUPERB control. If you decide to buy this rubber, and i highly do recommend it, and you find that it has lack of spin my advice to you is to keep it on for one more year and train very hard with it. One of two things will happen. First possibility is that rubber will gain spin on its own and it will improve in accuracy. Second thing that can happen is that you will learn how to spin the ball better and where to place it on the table. So basically invest one year of good quality training and 5$ to 10$ for the rubber and you will see first or second option coming true. Hope this helps a bit. Best of luck all TT players and fans and have fun :)

It's a very good rubber. I don't know why, but he is very unknown. He is tacky (as a 729fx of Friendship), as fast/slow for me. The Earth is like a lot of other chinese rubber, but he is soft, it's the big difference. It's easy, you can do anything with the Earth ( I have any parts of the Milkyway enterprise ;) ). It's for ME the best rubber in my backhand for MY play. He is at 5$ on TTNPP, so just one advice: try it ;)

I have a sheet of Earth in red on 2.2 sponge rated 36-38 hardness. Playing with it on a soft flexible blade (gambler kevlar oversize) it is a nice soft rubber that loops well. The sponge allows good mechanical spin. Tackiness is is not bad after a little play. It compares favorably with venus (which I have is similar sponge hardness, but in 2.0). I do think it is worth a try if you like chinese rubber that is more euro than chinese. I am not sure if there are many sources for it in the US
