The Birth of the Solar System

How did our Solar System originate? What chain of events led to its creation? Just as detectives look for traces of evidence to solve a mystery, astronomers analyze the details that point to the formation of the Sun and planets.

These surface scars tell us about the formation and violent history of planets, moons and rings. Nonetheless today we live in a relatively stable Solar System, made possible by the shattering collisions that shaped our worlds.

Beginning with the condensation of the initial cloud of gas and cosmic dust, we explore the history of planetary formation and the mechanism of accretion.
