Transcript of The 4 Stages of PLanetary Development

Differentiation really means "to separate"
elements that make a planet will separate into different regions
-
iron
( heavier material ) &

silicate rock
(lighter
material ) will eventually separate
- iron will fall to the center of the planet creating a core,
while silicate stays toward the middle to surround
the core
Differentiation
Planet tectonics start to shift the harden crust through out the terrestrial planet which causes the land masses to separate and collide together
while the planet is still cratering , fractures are created within the crust which then allows lava to burst through and fill / smooth over the craters
Flooding
The solid surface becomes deformed by debris
from the solar system
when the planets were formed they each
suffered from colliding in a violent and frequent matter.
The bombardment became visible after the
crust cooled enough to be solid
Cratering
