Storyboard Text

  • The planets were created by grains of material colliding with one another, making these clumps of rock bigger each time it collided with another rock.
  • The Earth and the rest of the solar system formed together 4.6 billion years ago.
  • All the planets of the solar system share comparable shapes, and were made around the same time.
  • Scientists could have used radiometric dating to figure out the ages of rocks when the earth and the rest of the solar system was created.
  • This could be illustrated by a timeline of how and when the solar system formed.
  • The planets of the solar system were formed by bombardments of rocks.
  • There were bombardments of rocks on planets in the solar system because they create craters in the planet's surface.
  • Bombardments of rocks on planets still happen to this day when meteors crash into planets.
  • To illustrate this, I could show a meteor crashing onto Earth and staying on the surface.
  • Scientists could have discovered this by observing a meteorite sticking to the crust of the Earth.
  • Erosion and plate tectonics on Earth destroyed much of the evidence of this bombardment of rocks, explaining the relative scarcity of impact craters on Earth.
  • Evidence include erosion and plate tectonics causing rocks to move, crack, and form with other rocks.
  • When plate tectonics or erosion occur, rocks are changed, making it a new rock.
  • This could be illustrated by a picture of layers of rocks underneath the surface of the Earth showing how rocks are formed.
  • Scientists could have confirmed this idea by observing an earthquake, and see how the rocks are changed.
  • The age and composition of Earth's oldest rocks, lunar rocks, and meteorites, can be illustrated on how they're different, and their similarities.
  • The radiometric ages of these rocks can be compared because of what they're made of.
  • Scientists gathered this evidence by using radioactive decay from rocks.
  • The age and composition of lunar rocks, meteorites, and Earth's oldest rocks can be determined by radiometric dating when there are different isotopes.
  • The composition of objects in the solar system are similar because they were made around the same time, and the same type of rocks were colliding forming these objects.
  • The composition of solar system objects can be illustrated by the different materials used to make these objects.
  • Scientists gathered this evidence by analyzing meteorites and craters on Earth.
  • For evidence, the meteorites on the surface of the Earth could be compared to other objects.
  • Observations of the size and distribution of impact craters on the surface of Earth and on the surfaces of solar system objects can be illustrated by comparisons between craters.
  • To compare the size and distribution of impact craters, they compared on their shape, and rocks around them.
  • For evidence, I have craters on the surface of solar system objects to compare.
  • Scientists gathered this information by observing and analyzing impact craters on the surface of solar system objects.
