Birth of the Solar System

Where did our solar system come from? The events that led to the formation of the solar system have for centuries been shrouded in mystery but over the last fifty years, advances in astronomical technology have allowed scientists to look behind the curtains of the past to discover that these events were far more dramatic and chaotic than previously believed. Giant collisions, planets migrating millions of miles through space and a barrage of asteroids raining down into the inner solar system are just a few of the spectacular events under investigation as scientists seek to uncover the truth behind the birth of the mighty solar system.
