Further from the centre, dust and gases cooled down and condense into tiny particles.
The particles start to collide to form larger boulders. They intern collide to form larger entities called planetisimals.
Planetisimals were joined together to form planetary embryos. These planetary embryos were large enough to pull objects to itself by gravitational pull. When all the surrounding material around the embryos is pulled towards it, planets were formed.

Earth’s atmosphere consists mainly of nitrogen (78%), oxygen (21%) and other gases including argon and carbon dioxide. Oxygen in our atmosphere is due to a process called photosynthesis where plants use carbon dioxide and produce oxygen to make sugars. The amount of carbon dioxide on earth would be much higher if it was not for plants. Without oxygen and nitrogen life on earth would not exists.
The earth’s powerful magnetic field is our protection against the effects of the solar winds of the sun. This magnetic field is due to the nickel-iron core that spins around at a very fast rate.
The Ozone layer, which is a special type of oxygen, is our protection against the harmful solar radiation or UV rays.
Life on earth first develops in the waters or oceans. For years the water was trapped within the earth and was brought to the surface by volcanic activity. The processes called abiogenesis or biopoiesis where life grows from non- living simple organisms. The oceans cover two thirds of the surface on earth. Earth is unique in a sense that we have yet to discover water on any of the other planets.
How did water come to be on
