How do planets form?

Hello,

The first question in the 'Ask me about Astronomy' section has been asked and it's quite an entertaining one: 'How do planets form?'

I took some time to try and explain as clearly as possible the process we envision to form giant and terrestrial planets. You can read the answer by clicking on 'Ask me about Astronomy', whatever your background is, and ask more questions if something is still unclear or missing or some other totally unrelated question came to your mind! Do not hesitate to share the answer if you like it...
