"Planetary formation: a brief history of the solar system" by Dr. Sami Mikhail.

This lecture is part of a series of lectures on “Astronomy” organised by Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias in collaboration with the British Council.

Dr Sami Mikhail, from the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of St. Andrews will provide in this lecture a brief account of some of the major events that have happened in our solar system over the course of its 4.6-billion-year lifetime. These events include the time when meteorites rained down on all of the inner planets, the time when Mars had liquid water on its surface, and the time Earth collided with another planet and made the moon.
