So, after discussing the variable speed of light a few days ago, we turned our attention to planet formation.

The current thinking is based on a model of accretion. All well and good. Everything is accounted for, it’s a nice, tidy and neat little model. WHAT IF?

It is believed that the core of each planet contains a lump of iron. We also know that most, if not all, elements are created in the super furnaces known as stars. We also know that when a star creates iron, it goes supernova! Iron is known as the ‘Star Killer’. So what is to say that the iron created by the star isn’t the centre of accretion?

This theory needs a LOT of research, and we hope that one day, Saad will be able to prove/disprove this idea!
