How does Earth come from?
Earth formed from debris orbiting around our sun about 4 ½ billion years ago. That is also the approximate age of the sun, but it is not the beginning of our story. The story really begins with the Big Bang nearly 14 billion years ago, which spewed hydrogen atoms throughout the universe.
What started space?
