Episode Details

The first in a two-part sequence covering the origin of planets in the Milky Way galaxy, this video takes the students on a comparative tour of the inner planets to show how similar and how different each is in comparison with Earth. Processes in the solar nebula are discussed that explain our current understanding of how the terrestrial planets formed and how they evolved geologically over 5 billion years.
