At 4.6 billion years old, the Solar System is our solid, secure home in the Universe. But how did it come to be? We trace the system's birth from a thin cloud of dust and gas. Shocked by a nearby supernova, the pull of gravity and natural rotation spun it into a flat disc from which the Sun and planets coalesced. It all happened in the space of 700 million years, during which the planets jockeyed for position, dodging the brutal bombardment of deadly asteroids and setting into the neat, stable system that we now realise might be a rarity in the universe. Explore the... history of our planets for the first time in spectacular 3-D! [show more]

History Channel documentary that makes use of CGI technology and expert contributions to explore the creation of the Solar System. Postulated to have begun life as a cloud of dust and gas that was shocked by a supernova, over a chaotic period of 700 million years the Solar System took on the stable form it has today as the mass of displaced material was pulled into a steady orbit by the gravitational force of the Sun.
