"Solar System"?

> the acidity level of the early Solar System was low, and liquids were kept at around 80 degrees Celsius

Sounds like a warm wet place, and yet "solar system" is a term for the local star and the planets orbiting it. So what exactly is he talking about? There is mention of the asteroid belt, but I have difficulties imagining liquid water remaining warm (and not evaporating instantly) up there. What did I miss?
