Explaining Two Major Jet Propulsion Lab Mysteries Concerning Planet Formation and Star Evolution

Authors: Jeffrey Joseph Wolynski

Two major mysteries are still prevalent according to scientists at Jet Propulsion Laboratories. The first mystery is how micron sized dust particles can clump together into kilometer sized planetesimals. The second mystery is why the oxygen-16 is higher in abundance and nitrogen-15 is in lower comparable abundance in solar wind measurements. In short, the extent and origin of isotopic variations in all samples of solar system objects can be attributable to one factor, which can also explain how micron sized objects become 1 kilometer sized ones during planet formation. Both mysteries are solved with one simple realization, or “aha!” moment.
