Caption

Planetary formation. Computer artwork of small rocky bodies (planetesimals) accreting with a protoplanet in the early Solar System. As the planetesimals impact the planet, they turn the surface molten and trigger volcanic eruptions. This is the process by which the Earth and the other inner Solar System planets formed around 4.6 billion years ago.
