A Solar System Time Machine and Meteorites

Lecture no. 20 from the course: A Field Guide to the Planets

A Solar System Time Machine and Meteorites

Taught by Professor Sabine Stanley | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Today we see an orderly solar system with planets staying in their orbits around the sun, moons staying in their orbits around the planets, and comets coming and going in predictable fashion. But how did it all start? Learn how a molecular cloud gave rise to a proto-planetary disk in which our solar system developed step by step across time and space—and is developing still.
