New Horizons has received new information about the formation of planets

A Theory about how the planets formed in our Solar system have been disproved. About this report the authors of a study published in the journal . In the process of studying the asteroid Aracot (Arrokoth, 2014 MU69) — the most ancient and distant Solar system, scientists noted its dual form. Thanks to Arrarat astrophysics have confirmed the previously incredible hypothesis about how actually the planets formed. was presented at the meeting of the American Association for the advancement of science in Seattle. According to lead author of the study Alan stern, the discovery is of enormous importance.

Refutation of the dominant theory of planet formation

The Researchers were able to study in detail the distant asteroid of the Solar system Arrarat after a NASA space probe flew near him. This gave scientists the opportunity to test which of the two competing theories of planet formation is correct, as Arrarat — this is the original balance of the formation of planets since the origin of the Solar system (4.6 billion years ago). is at a distance of more than six billion kilometers from the Sun in a region called the Kuiper belt.

As they say in their paper, the researchers, the asteroid formed from two separate settling down nearby celestial bodies. it is Notable that these objects rotated around each other and gradually came together. This means that no catastrophic processes (e.g., collisions), they were not exposed. Smooth surface and uniform composition indicate the correctness of the conclusions of astrophysicists.

To date, researchers believed that the planets of the Solar system formed in the collisions of different bodies in the solar nebula. The analysis revealed no evidence of collisions and other traces, indicating that the objects slowly merged into one. It should be noted that the new theory of soft adhesion was developed by Professor Anders Johansen, 15 years ago, and the Kuiper belt objects are mostly not changed since formation . In fact, asteroids in the Kuiper belt — fossils of this age in a few billion years.

As written by Anders Johansen today marks the confirmation of his theory with his daughter Laura. Six years ago, when Arrarat was discovered, it was known only under the name MU69 2014. However, during the span he was given the unofficial name of Ultima Thule. While the name comes from the classical and medieval term "remote place on the borders of the known world", his use of Nazi occultists as the mythical homeland of the Aryan race has caused controversy. As a result, the subject was given another official name of Arrarat — an Indian term that means "sky" in the language of chief Powhatan.
