The formation of the solar system began 4.6 billion years ago when an interstellar cloud of dust and gas began collapsing in on itself. Over millions of years, increasing pressure and temperature at the core of this material led to the creation of a star we call the sun.
With the effect of gravity, matter spinning around the core began clumping together. The largest of these masses became the solar system's nine planets. Rocky versions, including the Earth, formed closest to the sun. Further away from the sun, gas and ice merged into four "gas giants" - huge planets composed primarily of hydrogen and helium.
The dwarf planet Pluto lies even more distant. Comprising a rocky core with an icy surface, it revolves around the sun at an average distance of 5.8 billion kilometers.
