  • The age of the Solar System can be defined as the time of formation of the first solid grains in the nebular disc surrounding the proto-Sun. This age is estimated by dating calcium‐aluminium-rich inclusions in meteorites. These inclusions are considered as the earliest formed solids in the solar nebula. Their formation marks the beginning for several longand short-lived radiogenic clocks that are used to precisely define the timescales of Solar System events, such as the formation and evolution… CONTINUE READING
