How does a solar system form?
« on: 26/01/2012 11:21:51 »
Given a start point of the gas and bits of dust left over from a supernova, or from a primoridal source - how does a solar system form?

Once planets are formed, how do they get into stable orbits?

Isn't the idea that we get 'new' material from supernovas etc, that is 'exploding stars?'?
