.Dont forget to take into account the heavy bombardment period during the early years of formation so grab a pen and paper and don't forget to
carry the one .
Thaks, lol. When I saw the math my mind glitched. Then it when blank from the light generated by all those impacts…
That seems to be a standard accepted theory… that early on the earth was constantly bombarded and kept in a molten state by all the stuff raining
I think there were epochs in its history like that. One poster mentioned the impact that formed the moon-- an event of that size would result in a
rain of meteoric debris that lasts for eons maybe, but eventually the earth goes back to just slowly accreting.
If the sun was burping and sputtering to life for a while the solar system would be filled with dust cooled from the plasma emitted by it. That would
make for some heavy sediments on all the planets is my guessing… but in dust
form, not sizable impactors.
When viewed from afar other young star systems appear dully lit and surrounded by dusty halos. This is surely a dynamic as yet little understood
If thats what we are viewing here…
