"Is the Solar System Special?"


Baltimore Science Museum 2014-12

Is the Solar System Special?” That is, “Are We Special?”

Cool Worlds explains that planetary systems are common, and most have “super Earths” and “sub Neptunes”. We really don’t (maybe Planet 9).

Jupiter rules the brood, and a hot Jupiter would have ruined it all. 

But the principle of “Mediocrity” may not hold.
