Disorderly planetary system challenges the theories

The planets orbiting our own Sun do so in an orderly system. Rocky planets are on the inside, while the gas giants – including Jupiter – are on the outside, and all the trajectories follow virtually the same plane. This is how it most often commonly takes place, according to the astronomers’ theories for planet formation. However, a newly…
