What are other options ?

Stars and planets formation and possibility of
life in solar system and exosolar planets
by Dr. Mohaddesseh Azimlu
Location: University of TorontoThursday
May 29th, 2014
you know that many elements in your body have been
in stars? Stars continually born from gaseous dusty
and die and recycle back into interstellar medium in our
galaxy, the Milky Way, and other galaxies. Giant
clouds collapse into disks rotating around proto-stars.
Planetary systems similar to our own solar system form
within these proto-planetary disks. In the case of our
system, there was just enough material left over at the
right temperature to form rocky planets like the Earth,
and Venus within 250 million kilometers of the Sun.
out, where temperatures were cooler and more material was
available, gas giants formed.
Among the countless stars
visible in the night sky, how many are surrounded by
systems like our own? Scientists believe the number of
worlds may depend on the mechanism by which stars and
planets are born. An estimation, supported by the very
recent observations of Kepler space observatory suggests
that planets like our own and within habitable zone may
common throughout our Galaxy.
