Trojan planet formation

Post by Lazarus on 20th October 2008, 6:27 am

Standing on the shoulders of giants: Trojan Earths and vortex trapping in low mass self-gravitating protoplanetary disks of gas and solids

These simulations, which model both gas and dust self-consistently, form Earth-mass planets and super-Earths in the Trojan points of a gas giant, in contrast to earlier simulations where the mass of the Trojan planet only reached about 0.6 Earth masses.

Even interesting to see a Trojan for a Brown Dwarf star system.
