This is apparently how the Earth looked 4 billion years ago. Constant battering by asteroids kept the surface churning, releasing magma and causing early oceans to boil away. My story today for +sen .
NASA finds early Earth was battered by giant asteroids. Paul Sutherland News Editor 04 August, 2014 07:08. Sen - Though asteroids occasionally cross the Earth's path, the danger of a cosmic collision thankfully remains a rare if real one. The Solar System is today a peaceful zone.

My story for +sen today.
