09 - Migration

 

 

Alan Stern, of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, also observes that while the findings of Stardust tell of its infancy, many scientists now think the solar system has had several violent upheavals. Hundreds of millions of years after they formed the gas giants swept into new orbits. The 'late heavy bombardment', which left the Moon's surface so densely scarred, is testament to this period.

The current view of the early solar system is that the gas planets formed in much closer orbits and then moved outwards as they cleared debris from the disk of gas and dust.

These developments are interesting to compare to my overall hypothesis, which involves all the celestial bodies of this system migrating outwards in succession. An object like Inti would certainly fit that scenario also.
