Caption: Colliding planets, computer artwork. Two planetary-sized bodies are colliding in the foreground. This event is similar to that which saw the Moon formed when a small protoplanet collided with the early Earth. In the background is a depiction of the present-day solar system, including Earth and its moon, the other planets, the asteroid belt and the Kuiper Belt (blue ring).
