Today's winner is: TRUDY BERNARD, H Lee Hall, Va. How Old Is The Earth? In trying to find out things about the earth, its age, how it was formed, we have to use phrases like "scientists think" or "scientists believe." B u t when it comes to certain things, we can say "scientists know." One of the things scientists know is that radioactive atoms in the earth's rocks break down at a steady rate. So these atoms are like "clocks" that tell how much time has passed since the rocks were formed. Now, certain very old rocks have been found in West and South Africa. Scientists know these rocks are about 3 billion years old. But that's not all. These are sedimentary rocks, which means they were formed long after the earth's crust formed. Therefore the earth must be even older than these rocks. One more clue about the earth's age. Scientists think (that word again!) that meteorites were formed at the same time as the earth. By using the radioactive "clock," scientists have found the age of certain meteorites to be 4.5 billion years old. So this is considered to be the "probable" age of the earth. Of course, if we knew exactly how the earth began, that would be a big help in determining its age. But all we have on that subject are "hypotheses," or theories and ideas. The one that is called the dust-cloud hypothesis. According to this theory, about 6 billion years ago a huge cloud made up of very large amounts of dust and gas began to condense. Gravitation pulled the gas and dust particles together. As the dust cloud condensed, it began to spin. It also flattened out and became shaped like a pancake. The slow spinning center condensed to make the sun. The outer " parts broke up into smaller swirls and these condensed separately to make the planets. One of these was the earth. It went through many changes over billions of years to become the earth we live on today. + * * FUN TIME The Riddle Box 1. What makes more noise than a cat stuck hi a tree? 2.
