Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in the Blackwell Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Senior lecturer in earth sciences at the Open University David Rothery gives an overview of the solar system and its origins. He describes the worlds that make up our solar system – the terrestrial planets, giant planets, dwarf planets and various other objects such as satellites (moons), asteroids and Trans-Neptunian objects – and considers how our knowledge has advanced.
