(ORDO NEWS) — Scientists have made about 14,000 simulations of the development of the solar system and have seen that the mysterious giant planet that has been searched for in recent years could simply “escape” from the star.
Modeling, described in an article in the journal Nature, showed that at the dawn of the solar system, gas giant planets had round and regular orbits.
But around the Sun at that time there was a protoplanetary disk of gas. Inside it, the star heated up and “displaced” the gas from the disk. This gas carried away the gas giant planets.
The terrestrial planets were more fortunate: they formed after this period of instability. But the supposed giant Planet Nine could have been forced out of the early solar system. That is why attempts to find it were unsuccessful.
