Abstract. In this chapter, the formation of the inner silicate planets and the Earth–Moon system is discussed. It is generally accepted that Earth and the Moon were formed by the giant impact, in which a Martian-size object (one tenth mass of that of the Earth) hit the proto-Earth, creating the Earth–Moon system (an impact angle of 45 degree is the most favorable).

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().   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. A new book titled "Exoplanets: Diamond Worlds, Super Earths, Pulsar Planets and the New Search for Life Beyond Our Solar System" (Smithsonian Books, ) explores the history of exoplanet.
