Secrets of the Solar System

Episode 8 of 19

Series exploring topical scientific issues. A look at how new planets being discovered are forcing scientists to rewrite the history of our own solar system.

New planets are now being discovered outside our solar system on a regular basis, and these strange new worlds are forcing scientists to rewrite the history of our own solar system. Far from a simple story of stable orbits, the creation of our solar system is a tale of hellfire, chaos and planetary pinball.

It's a miracle our Earth is here at all.
