What is the minimum amount of energy required to irreversibly blow up our lovely planet into smithereens?

Details and assumptions

• Model the Earth as sphere of uniform volume density composed of tiny neutral pieces of mass.

• The radius of the Earth is $R_e=6371km$.

• The mass of the Earth is $M_e = 5.972\times 10^{24} kg$

• Newton's gravitational constant is $G=6.673\times10^{-11} m^3 kg^{-1} s^{-2}$
