Caption: Young Earth. Computer artwork showing the young Earth shrouded in turbulent clouds, while flashes of lightning and the glow of volcanoes and lava fields can be seen illuminating the clouds from beneath. The space around the Earth contains remnants of the nebula from which the Solar System was born. On the upper right is the Moon whose lava-filled scars from massive impacts are still cooling. 500 million years after its molten birth the Earth's surface would have cooled enough for a solid crust to form.
