Collisions between planetary bodies have played an important role in shaping our solar system and the evolution of life within it. Key to understanding the multifarious consequences of such impacts is a thorough comprehension of the impact process itself. I will discuss recent advances in the understanding of impact cratering through numerical simulations of impacts on planetary surfaces.
