Transcript of Nebular Hypothesis
3. The thermal energy then builds up into a ball we know as the sun.
2. The nebula contracted while the gravitational energy changed into thermal energy.
The Nebular Hypothesis theory is the most widely accepted model explaining the formation and evolution of our solar system.
The theory explains how the planets were made and how the planets were joined with their own solar disk creating their revolution around the sun.
The theory has a few steps to it.
1. The birth of the solar system began as a nebula (bundle of dust and gases). The nebula began to gravitationally collapse.
4. Cooling of the nebula cloud caused rocky and metallic materials to condense into tiny solid particles.
5. Repeated collisions caused the dust-sized particles to gradually combine into asteroid-sized bodies.
6. The bodies eventually built up and formed the planets and fell into one of the rotating disk layers where the gravitational pull was balanced.
Even though the hypothesis is the most widely accepted theory of the evolution of the earth, it faces several problems and issues throughout the hypothesis.
1. The hypothesis fails to explain how or where the debris came from in the first place.
2. Doesn't explain how the dust overcame its natural force to be compressed into the sun and planets.
3. The hypothesis doesn't explain how Venus and Uranus rotate the opposite direction than the rest of the planets.
4. It doesn't explain how the 1cm size particles could possibly change into 1km wide planetesimals in such a short amount of time.
5. All the planets should have axes of rotation exactly the same as the sun; Yet they do not.
6. All the planets' orbits should be in the same plane, which should be in the same central plane as the sun. Pluto and Eris may have been outside of the solar system while the planets were aligning and by creating energy, may have pulled them into the solar system some how. That is Pluto was considered a planet until they found out that it couldn't be a "planet" because its revolution cuts in front of Uranus's revolution. It is now considered a "dwarf planet."
Here are some pictures and diagrams of which the theory may have looked like.
We obviously know that evolution isn't true. We know that God created the earth, but do we know how He did it? Is it possible that He may have caused the Nebular Hypothesis? It could be. Do we know for sure? No we don't. But maybe one day we will be able to ask him ourselves.
