A new study proposes that space rocks are originated during the formation of planets. These rocks were not involved in the process of development of planet.
Earlier, Researchers used to believe that meteorites played a vital role in the formation of the solar system. They considered space rocks as the important constituent of the planets. However, the latest research rejected all the previous misconceptions.
The experts of MIT along with researchers of the Prude University carried out the study. The analysis shows that meteorites emerged when the gas and dust clashed during the creation of solar systems. Later on, these remnants joined together to form planets. In short, the study shows that scientists attributed to meteorites more than they deserved.
Bradon Johnson, a scientist of MIT’s Earth and planetary Sciences department states that planets are not made up of meteorites components. They appeared as a result of formation of solar system.
Additionally, the collision models prove that these bodies are formed earlier than the development of chondrules. In other words, models are evidence that these space rocks were not a part of the planet building.
Fred Ciesla, Associate professor of Planetary Sciences at University of Chicago states that if the study turns out true, then it would confirm that chondrites are not the elementary unit of Earth.
Moreover, the recent research indicates that the primitive solar system was more powerful than the expectations of scientists. The emergence of these gigantic space rocks are the biggest proof of it.
