The Solar Nebular Theory

By John Merritt

What is the Solar Nebular Theory and what does it state?

The Solar Nebular Theory is the widely accepted model explaining the formation and evolution (although I don't agree with evolution) of the solar system. It is also called the "Nebula Hypothesis".

What it states is that our solar system was made from a nebula cloud made from a collection of dust and gas.

Who discovered the Solar Nebular Theory and when was it developed?

The one who discovered this theory was Emanuel Swedenborg, and he developed this theory during the 18th century (1700's in case you didn't know when the 18th century was).
