The Solar System is the result of a long and complex process that transformed an initial diffuse cloud of the interstellar medium into planets, asteroids and comets. Like in the Grimm’s tale, we can find some crumbs, left along the process, which can help us to understand the path that lead where we are today. Among them, the short lived radionuclides decay products in meteoritic and terrestrial material provide us with specific information on the first phases of the Solar System birth. In this contribution, we will present a study on the challenging message from the short lived radionuclide 10Be, and the Herschel observations towards young protostars that help to understand what happened to our Solar System.
