A Map of Every Object in our Solar System

Solar System appeared 4.6 billion years ago from the gravitational collapse of a giant interstellar molecular cloud.

This planet and Saturn are gas giants, mainly formed of hydrogen and helium; Uranus and Neptune are ice giants. The four smaller innermost planets, Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars, are terrestrial, being principally formed of rock and metal.

Thus Pangaea was the most recent mega continent to have existed and the first to be reconstructed by scientists.
