The solar system would have formed as a member of a star cluster, now long-since dispersed throughout the Milky Way over...
Accretion Disk -- An accretion disk is a structure formed by material falling into a gravitational source. Conservation of angular momentum requires that, as a large cloud of material collapses inward, any small rotation it may have will increase.

Friction between the particles of the disk generates heat...
