The origin of Earth as a habitable planet
Despite several models having been formulated in recent decades, the fundamental question of how Earth formed, with the properties that made it a habitable planet, remains unsolved. All proposed models have only been tested against a limited number of constraints (sometimes different constraints for different models, with no common intersection). The EU-funded HolyEarth project’s goal is to solve this difficulty with a holistic approach, which consists in considering the largest set of available observational constraints to identify a unique scenario which, for the first time, simultaneously satisfies all these constraints in a self-consistent way and places the formation of Earth in the context of a cosmic evolution towards stars and planets.
