Solar Nebula

what is the Solar Nebula theory

the Solar Nebula theory is the basic properties of the Solar System that need to be explained:

1. All planets orbit the Sun in the same direction as the Sun’s rotation

2. All planetary orbits are confined to the same general plane

3. Terrestrial planets form near the Sun, Jovian planets further out

SNT states

It is believed that the sun, planets, moons and asteroids were formed around the same time around 4.5 billion years ago from a nebula.

Discoverer of SNT and when it was found

Immanuel kant was the the person who came up with the theory in 1734
