Mars may have formed much later than thought

As per scientists, Mars may have taken up to 15 million years longer to form than we have believed. It was previously thought that the Red Planet grew more rapidly in just two to four million years after the Solar System started to form. However, a new study has found that Mars formed gradually, accumulating mass over a period of 20 million years by pulling particles into its gravitational field.
