Abstract: The Solar system as we know it formed some 4.5 billion years ago. Our understanding of the timescales of planet formation, the material make-up of the Earth, and deep planetary processes has improved dramatically with advances in several broad, largely separate, areas of science - cosmochemistry, extreme conditions and seismology, and the simulation of planetary growth and mixing. This issue brings together scientists from all disciplines in order to reconcile views on the internal structure and early chemical evolution of the Earth and the relationship with the formation of the moon.
