About the Big Bang theory: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_bang

About the forming of stars: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star

About planets: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planet

Most important quote:

Quote:
Planets are thought to form from the collapsing nebula that a planet's star formed out of, aggregating from gas and dust that orbits the protostar in a dense protostellar disk before the star's core ignites and its solar wind blows the remaining material away.

Oh, and planets are round due to gravity.

I think this site reads a bit easier than the other ones.
