Our solar system in its current equilibrium is a rather quiet and orderly place where the planets are in stable orbits around the sun. New discoveries by astronomers are forcing scientists to reconsider how the solar system was formed. traditionally it has been thought that the planets were created in their current position around the sun but new ideas which are presented in the Secrets Of The Solar System show that the infant solar system was a chaotic game of “planetary pinball”. There is a good chance that we could have had a “hot Jupiter” which orbited the sun very closley and then moved out over time. This documentary shows the formation of the solar system was much more than a simple story and its a miracle that the earth even exists at all.
