Caption: Formation of the Earth. Artwork showing the surface of an early, volcanically active Earth. This is the period when the Earth was cooling down, and the Heavy Bombardment Period had ceased. Microscopic life is flourishing, forming bacterial mats along the fringes of the water filling the volcanic craters and the impact craters.
