what is the Solar Nebula Theory?

The solar nebula theory, also known as thenebular hypothesis, is the most widely accepted model explaining the formation and evolution of oursolar system. It was originally applied to our solarsystem only but, this method of planetary system formation is now thought to hold true throughout the universe

some nice pictures of space

when and who developed the solar nebula theory?

This nebular hypothesis was first developed in the 18th century by Emanuel Swedenborg, Immanuel Kant, and Pierre-Simon Laplace. Kant argued that gaseous clouds—nebulae, which slowly rotate, gradually collapse and flatten due to gravity and eventually form stars and planets. Laplace’s proposed a similar model in which a protosolar cloud (a nebular cloud) contracted and cooled, flattening and shedding rings of material in the process which later collapsed to form the planets.
