Age of the Solar System

This morning we are at the huge American Geophysical Union meeting in San Francisco with over 15,000 scientists! This morning Dr. M. Wadhwa gave a new estimate of the Solar System's age, 4568.7 (+0.2/-0.4) million years! We also heard from B.E. Schmidt that asteroid Ceres could contain 30% water. Potentially Ceres could have more fresh water than Earth! More coming soon!
