  The discovery of extra solar planets revolving around distant stars has been a great achievement for mankind and his quest to unlock the secrets of the universe. Their appearance has opened up the possibility of life existing outside of our own solar system among the many stars. On the other hand the extra solar planets with their documented approximations of mass, orbital speed, and distances from host stars have exposed the many flaws in present day astrophysics and how astronomers predicted the formation of planets.


   Many Jupiter sized planets have been found revolving in close proximity of stars at various rates of orbital velocities. One example would be the planet orbiting the sun-like G class star HD 38529 located approximately 138 light years from Earth. The planetís mass orbital period and distance from the host star respectively is a minimum of .77 of Jupiterís mass, an orbital period of 14.31 Earth days, and an average distance from the star is .129 AU (Astronomical Units) or 12 million miles. But how can this planetary stellar discovery hold up, if the foundation of planetary formation established in the circles of elite astrophysicists dictates, that any mass similar to Jupiter has to be a hydrogen based gas planet.

   Planetary formation according to present accepted theories would have cosmic objects similar in mass and size of the gas planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune coalescing on the outer edges of a contracting gaseous disk of a proto solar system where solid available hydrogen and NH molecules precipitates around a cold rocky mass attracted by a strong gravitational field. What force would be the cause of a planet in an outer orbit to move to an interior position, since the gas giants develop far away from the heat of the solar mass and the need for available H and NH molecule clouds? The answer would be the strongest gravitational present in the local area or the host star.

   Any star capable of changing an orbit of a planet by gravitational attraction, would also capture it and assimilate it on impact with the solar mass. An outside gravitational force upon a planetís capture cannot alter motion, once directed towards a stellar object. The result of this encounter is assimilation by the solar mass after impact. An orbital path is maintained by other factors such as the repulsion force still mostly unknown to current astrophysics. This force builds between a planet and the host primary star slowly. The point where the repulsion force, an outward force emanating from the star, equalizes the force of gravity, which draws the planet in is where the path of orbit is established. The planetís angle of approach and velocity determines the original eccentricity of the orbit, but  does revert to more circular orbit over time unless affected by gravity from another star in close proximity or as part of a multiple stellar system. The rotational velocity of the planetsí orbit is maintained by the angular momentum of the repulsion particle stream at the point of intersection of the planetís orbital distance from the star. Then there is the obvious, planetary absorption of solar heat upon approach. How long would solid or liquid hydrogen gas based planet last in an orbit that would be similar to 1/3 the distance from our Sun to our planet Mercury? The result would be hydrogen and other light gases boiling off the surface of the planet and stripped away by the solar wind of the star exposing the heavy elements of what was the core of the planet.

   Many scientists will realize the fact that the gravity emanating from this object would not hold hydrogen in its gaseous form, as that of the gas planets in this solar system which attracted hydrogen in its solid form. Surrounded by gaseous hydrogen heated to extremes under the conditions of an inner orbit, could not provide a sufficient gravitational containment force. The pressure differentials would cause surface materials related to a gas planet to evaporate and escape into the low-pressure environment of outer space as a decreasing volume displacement causing a push back from the press of Dark Matter containment is not enough for an excited heated light hydrogen atmosphere.

   Other factors were overlooked, a material for a rocky core would not be in great supply for a natural planetary formation to occur so close to the assimilation process of a forming stellar mass. In essence, there could not be a planetary mass fitting the parameters established by Earthís science to explain what mankind has discovered. Leaving only a planetary mass similar to a terrestrial planet, which according to mankindís theory of the formation of planets does not exist in a mass similar to a gas planet. It is time to reexamine the theories pertaining to the formation of planetary objects within a solar system where mass is a determinate of a gas or terrestrial planet.
