The explosive reactions and forces, from gravity to nuclear fusion, that formed our Solar System.
- Our Solar System is the region of space that falls within the gravitational influence of our Sun.
- Our Solar System formed about 5 billion years ago from a giant spinning cloud of gas and dust.
- The Sun took 10 million years to form.
- Metal and dust particles clustered to form rocks, which eventually formed planets in a process known as accretion.
Our Solar System is the region of space which falls within the gravitational influence of our Sun.
