Smooth sailing

The Solar System in its early days sure wasn’t all rainbows and butterflies, and it was theorized that the birth of said system was made by an explosive supernova that forced massive clouds of gas and dust together into a center body, in which gravity created a form of spiral pattern, and hence planetary orbits as those planets were designed via chunks of star-side floating material gathering together, and the gas-giants made much farther as well as much later. That said, members of the Queen’s University Belfast had shared in their article on had discovered that the planet Neptune -like a rational person stepping out of a fistfight when things got intense- had floated very calmly from its original position of 20AU to 30AU during its creation, all while the early Solar System caused a massive scene with its cataclysmic starting point; as the crew viewed unique blue colored extremely fragile binary objects floating past Neptune in the Kuiper belt, which can be used to indicate the age of the universe itself, where found to be a completely different color than expected, being blue, not red. Using a few intricate telescopes (The Gemini North and Canada-France-Hawaii telescopes) the team had hypothesized that if it hadn’t been for Neptune’s slow and fluid movement, these binary objects would have surely shattered, both allowing a slightly better understanding of how the Solar System was during its rough first few years, as well as the ability to study these entities and see to the origins of the system. As mentioned in our lecture-tutorial (Temperature and formation of our solar system on page 111), the distance from the sun and heat that the sun produces are very important aspects in the creation and continued existence of our planets, hence meaning that even before Neptune’s movement, the distance and hence absurd cold not given from the sun could’ve created the mysterious binary objects, which required the planet be moved to sustain future outcomes. I had chosen this article as it was interesting to consider that research was still being done around Neptune, and not just passed into the abyss past it; as well as the very important pieces of information that granted these scientists to look into the earliest days of the Solar System more clearly than before.
