Chapter 2 - Formation of the Proto-Earth in the Solar Nebula Pages Abstract In Chapter 2, formation of the solar system from a gas nebula is discussed. In geophysical models, our solar system is considered to have started from the gas cloud. Instead of discussing each planet in turn, this book is organized by characteristics, such as distance (when Mercury and Pluto are mentioned as the closest and furthest planets), temperature (when Neptune and Pluto are highlighted for their cold temperatures and Mercury and Venus are highlighted as the hottest planets), and size (where Earth is.

Finally we learn about the last planed in out solar system Neptune. Neptune is the farthest planet from the sun. Next this book goes into showing pictures of the moons of different planets.

The first moon pictured is the Earth’s moon. I am glad that this book shows and gives the names of some of our other planet’s moons/5().
