hypothesis of this website raises several questions about planet
formation and behavior, specifically the idea that planets, and
all celestial bodies, form where they are by accretion, and remain
in their fixed positions and relative orbits.
In the below sections 'The
Protected Zone' and 'Ecosphere I
/ II' I have outlined an alternative
solar-system and planet formation concept which does involve accretion
but not as the primary process. More significantly, in relation
to K-11, it involves an outward trajectory of early gas planets.
As a much older star that
has a group of gas planets crowded around it, K-11 is actually the
reverse of what I have proposed, but it is still an observable example
of a system which throws doubt on both of the key concepts of planetary
accretion which my model questions.
( NOTE: the exo-planet
information in the following sections needs to be updated - it's
accurate but from a few years back - the number of exo-planets has
since doubled )
