The solar system is the home of the earth, and in the entire solar system, in addition to the earth, there are seven other planets, which revolve with the earth in the center of the sun. So how did the solar system form?
In fact, all star systems in the universe are basically born in nebulae. After the singularity big bang was born in the universe 13.8 billion years ago, matter began to form continuously. As the universe continues to expand, substances such as hydrogen and helium are also condensing in various corners of the universe to form early nebulae.
After the formation of the nebula, it began to rotate continuously under the action of the gravitational force of the universe, and the rotation produced a certain centripetal force, and a large amount of matter began to condense toward the center of the nebula, forming the original central celestial body. After the birth of this celestial body, it has a strong gravitational force after it has mass, and it can absorb nebula matter more effectively.
When the mass of the central celestial body reaches a certain level, the super-strong pressure ignites the internal nuclear fusion, thus forming stars. The birth of a star requires most of the material in the nebula, and the remaining scraps continue to condense to form various planets and other small celestial bodies.
The solar system was born in the same way. 5 billion years ago, the position of the solar system was just a solar nebula. Later, the sun was born in the center, and eight planets continued to form around it. The early solar system was very chaotic. At that time, the eight planets were just born and there were no stable orbits. At the same time, the entire solar system was full of celestial debris and asteroids.
The solar wind continuously blows the debris of the inner galaxy and the asteroid belt to further positions. As time goes by, the orbits of the eight major planets have stabilized, and the debris of the inner galaxy has also been blown to the edge of the solar system. In this way, the solar system is truly stabilized and the earth has the opportunity to breed life.
From this we can see that the stability of the solar system is a system formed by the sun and the eight planets. In this system, any change may bring about system fluctuations. If a planet suddenly disappears from the solar system, the stability of the entire solar system will inevitably produce certain fluctuations.
So will the disappearance of planets cause the solar system to fall into the chaos of the early days again? This possibility is very small. Although the stability of the entire solar system is maintained by the sun and the eight planets, in the entire system, it is the sun that plays the role of the pinnacle.
We all know that gravity is the core rule of the stability of the universe, and mass objects will have gravity. The greater the mass, the greater the gravity, the mass of the sun accounts for 99.86% of the total mass of the entire solar system, so its gravity is also beyond the intervention of other planets. As long as the sun can be stable, then the entire solar system can remain stable as a whole.
Although the sudden disappearance of a planet cannot bring chaos to the entire solar system, a small chaos cannot be avoided. How big this impact will be depends mainly on the position and mass of the planets. The disappearance of different planets will have different effects on the solar system.
Mercury is the closest to the sun and its mass is relatively small. Its disappearance will hardly affect the solar system. Venus is a neighbor of the earth, and its mass is similar to that of the earth. If it disappears, the earth’s balance system will lose the gravitational influence of Venus. However, due to the large distance between celestial bodies, the disappearance of this gravitational force will not have much impact on the earth.
Mars is also a neighbor of the earth, and its mass is much smaller than that of the earth. If Mars disappears, the impact will be greater than the disappearance of Venus. The reason is that there is an asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Its existence stabilizes the asteroid belt to a certain extent, making the probability of the Earth being impacted by an asteroid less.
After Mars has passed, Jupiter is the largest gas giant planet in the solar system. The masses of the other seven planets all add up to Jupiter. If Jupiter suddenly disappears, it will have the greatest impact on the entire galaxy of the solar system, and the most direct impact will be Mars and the asteroid belt.
Life on Earth can evolve through billions of years of evolution to the present, and a major hero is Jupiter. Jupiter assumes the role of the earth’s protector. It can effectively attract asteroids flying from the edge of the solar system towards the inner galaxy to prevent the earth from being hit. You know, the impact of an asteroid can easily exterminate life, 65 million years is due to the impact of an asteroid, leading to the extinction of the dinosaurs.
In addition, there is a huge asteroid belt around Jupiter. This asteroid belt poses a great threat to the earth. Because Jupiter is by its side, it can maintain a stability so that the asteroids in it will not run around. But if there is no Jupiter, the asteroid belt will release itself, and it is difficult to restrain the asteroid belt by relying on Mars.
At that time, a large number of asteroids may be rushing towards the inner galaxy, and the earth may be hit by many asteroids in the first place. Although the sudden disappearance of Jupiter will not cause the entire solar system to fall into chaos, the unbound asteroid belt can easily destroy life on the earth, turning the earth from a beautiful ecological planet into a desolate planet like Mars.
Saturn is the second largest planet in the solar system. If it suddenly disappears, its influence cannot be underestimated. Know that Saturn has a very large ring. This star ring orbits Saturn and forms a stable structure. But if Saturn is gone, this star ring will be unfettered, and it will become chaotic.
Of course, even if Saturn’s rings are chaotic, it is difficult for the inner galaxy to pose a threat because of the existence of Big Brother Jupiter. After Saturn’s rings lose the gravitational pull of Saturn, there is a high probability that they will be attracted by Jupiter’s gravitational pull. Some of them will orbit Jupiter and become moons, and some will fall into Jupiter and become dust.
The last Uranus and Neptune, their disappearance also has a very small impact on the inner galaxy, but the impact on the edge of the solar system is relatively large. We all know that there is a Kuiper belt at the edge of the solar system, and this Kuiper belt is relatively heavily influenced by the gravitational forces of Neptune and Uranus.
Once they disappear suddenly, the Kuiper belt at the edge of the solar system will produce huge fluctuations, and many asteroids may deviate from their orbits and rush towards the inner galaxy. Fortunately, Jupiter and Saturn are blocking the front, even if chaos occurs at the edge of the solar system, the inner galaxy will remain stable.
No matter what, because the earth is the home of mankind and a beautiful ecological planet. The sudden disappearance of a planet will not have a huge impact on the stability of the entire solar system, but as long as some small impacts occur, it may pose a huge threat to the earth’s ecosystem and the survival of life.
The ecology and development of life on earth requires a very stable structure of the solar system. Only when the solar system is stable can humans continue to develop and hope to eventually become a powerful interstellar civilization.
