Some more about Solar System:

The Solar System is thought to have formed around 4.6 billion years ago from a cloud of dust and gas known as the solar nebula. As the nebula collapsed under its own gravity, it began to spin faster and flatten into a disk. This process continued until the center of the disk became so hot and dense that nuclear fusion began, and the Sun was born. At the same time, material in the outer regions of the disk began to clump together to form the planets, moons, and other bodies that we see today. Over time, the Solar System has undergone numerous changes, including the formation of impact craters, cometary collisions, and volcanic eruptions. However, its overall structure has remained relatively unchanged, providing us with a window into the early days of our Solar System.

The 18th century saw the rise of haute couture, with designers like Charles Frederick Worth creating garments for an elite clientele. In the 19th century, trends began to spread more quickly thanks to developments in transportation and communication. By the early 20th century, fashion was truly global, with designers like Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli influencing trends around the world.
