ORIGIN OF THE EARTH
Robert C. Newman
DATA TO BE FIT IN EXPLAINING EARTH & SOLAR SYSTEM
Sun has most of mass in solar system (ratio 750:1)
Planets have most of angular momentum (200:1)
In same plane
Rotation counterclockwise (from North) (same as sun's rotation)
Sun is large but lightweight for size (1.5 g/cc)
So are outer planets (ave 1.5 g/cc)
Inner planets small but heavy (ave 5 g/cc)
Inner planets made of non-volatile materials sun and outer planets of
SCIENTIFIC THEORY OF SOLAR SYSTEM ORIGIN
Planets formed along with sun
From thin, shapeless cloud of gas and
As cloud contracted:
Became dark inside
Began to flatten
Heats up as it contracts
Finally beginning to glow from heat ionizing gas
Electric charges produce magnetic fields
These wind up, transfering angular
momentum allowing center to become
rounder (proto-sun) outside to push away as disk (planetary disk)
Dust in disk condenses:
Close-in if dust is non-volatile
Far-out if dust is volatile
Particles collide cold to form planets
Earth's atmosphere and oceans produced:
From inside planet by out-gassing as
earth heats up
Atmosphere oxygenated by plant life

vegetation replaces CO2 by oxygen, lowering
temperature and clearing atm so sun, etc.
