Episode Description

This week on The Method Section, Tom talks about the formation of planets in our solar system! How did they form in the first place? What did our primordial solar system look like, what effects of the universe shaped it? Have you ever wondered why there are no gas giants close to the Sun or why looking far away in space is actually looking back in time? New research of a planetesimal called “Arrokoth”, in the Kuiper belt, is changing how we look at planetary formation. Music by: Joakim Karud –
