Jupiter Once Migrated Causing Massive Disruption to the Solar System

 

Jupiter2 (1)


Jupiter may have once been as close to the Sun as Mars is now, and as it migrated through the main asteroid belt to its current position, it played a role is nearly wiping the asteroid belt clean, leaving behind only one-tenth of a percent of the original material in the belt but also bringing in material from the far reaches of the solar system, according to a new report from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA).

During the formation of the solar system, the gaseous planets that make up the outer solar system were pulled much closer to the Sun than they are now, causing a jarring cosmic riot in the asteroid belt.

"We found that the giant planets shook up the asteroids like flakes in a snow globe," said lead author Francesca DeMeo, a Hubble postdoctoral fellow at the CfA.

As the planets migrated, it caused a large-scale disruption to the contents of the solar system, the researchers said, noting that objects from as close to the Sun and Mercury and as far out as Neptune all gathered in the asteroid belt.

"The asteroid belt is a melting pot of objects arriving from diverse locations and backgrounds," DeMeo said in a statement.

Astronomers have recognized this cosmic diversity in the asteroid belt for some time, but a new analysis of the asteroids within the belt has revealed that it is more diverse than previously realized, particularly among the smaller asteroids in the belt.

DeMeo and Benoit Carry of the Paris Observatory report the finding in this week's edition of the journal Nature (available Thursday).

"This finding has interesting implications for the history of Earth," the CfA said in a statement. "Astronomers have theorized that long-ago asteroid impacts delivered much of the water now filling Earth's oceans. If true, the stirring provided by migrating planets may have been essential to bringing those asteroids."

The new research brings with it as many questions as it does answers. If, elsewhere in the Universe, an Earth-like exoplanet is forms or exists, would it also require a similar rain of asteroids to make it habitable? If that is the case, then worlds like our own may be even rarer than we think.

Helloooo electric universe theory. Migrating planets and massive interplanetary plasma filaments with electric discharge doesn't seem crazy at all.

Now who came up with this ''theory'' ?. Keeps the ''scientists'' busy, talking, writing and receiving cash for their ''research''.

In my opinion this adds to the credibility of Velikovsky. The question becomes, did planets migrate in the Bronze Age? Of course the next question is can they migrate now?

This story is pure disinformation. It was Planet X that wiped out the several planets that used to orbit in the "asteroid belt" area. Remember that Planet X has a huge tail of moons and debris and guess where most of that came from? You guessed it, the millions of asteroid-belt-area collisions which happened ages or eons ago. This was back in the day when Planet X passed through that area, now it pops up near the orbit of Venus, which is where it is NOW.

LOL Chris!

Quote: "During the formation of the solar system, the gaseous planets that make up the outer solar system were pulled much closer to the Sun than they are now, causing a jarring cosmic riot in the asteroid belt".

AD: According to the Standard Model explanation of the Solar system formation, all planets should origin from the presolar disc, which collapsed, and later on exploded and send gas and matter out which became planets and moons, etc. So, this general motion outwards from the sun of course couldn´t suddenly has stopped and supposedly attracts Jupiter or other planets.

Our Solar System is an integrated part of the galactic motion and formation and consequently should be explained in this connection and the most logical explanation should then be that the solar system was created out from a huge rotating "bobble of gas and matter" which was expelled out from the galactic center and via centrifugal force was split out and thus created our solar system which hasn´t changed significantly since it left the galactic centre.

Regarding the Velikovski "collision ideas", these are based on misinterpretation of myths belonging to the Milky Way and the creation stories from many cultures, where Velikovski transferred names and qualities from the Milky Way deities to the planets, thus confusing both the creation stories and the astronomical facts.
