How the Solar System was Made
At 4.6 billion years old, the Solar System is our solid, secure home in the Universe. But how did it come to be? In this episode we trace the system's birth from a thin cloud of dust and gas. Shocked by a nearby supernova, the pull of gravity and natural rotation spun it into a flat disc from which the Sun and planets coalesced. It all happened in the space of 700 million years, during which the planets jockeyed for position, dodging the brutal bombardment of deadly asteroids and setting in

"Even with this developing knowledge, the application of screw propulsion to boats could not take place until the advent of steam power. Due to greater suitability with the slow-turning, early steam engines, the first powerboats used paddle wheels for a form of water propulsion. In 1660, Toogood and Hays adopted the Archimedean screw as a ship propeller. Even by the 19th century, screw propulsion was still
