New Found Planets Defy Evolutionary Theory

Biblical creationist have always maintain that that the sun, moon, stars and planets were formed instantiously by God on day four of the creation week. That is why it’s no surprise that astronomers have found two huge planets orbiting a star likely formed at the dawn of the universe.

During a recent survey, astronnomers  found the signatures of the two planets orbiting the star, dubbed HIP 11952.

Based on the team's calculations, one world is almost as massive as Jupiter and completes an orbit in roughly seven days. The other planet is nearly three times Jupiter's mass and has an orbital period of nine and a half months.

Fully formed Planets at the dawn of the universe defy evolutionary theory.

Astronmers found the planets using a technique called radial velocity, in which astronomers watch for periodic wobbles in a star's light due to the gravitational tugs of orbiting worlds.

The idea of planets springing from such a stellar makeup runs counter to a widely accepted theory called the accretion model, which says that heavy elements are needed to form planets.

Even gas giants like Saturn and Jupiter require heavy elements to take shape, the thinking goes, because they are built upon solid cores.

The accretion theory has so far been backed up by observations: Most of the planet-harboring stars discovered to date are relatively young and have moderate to high amounts of metals.

But there may be an observational bias, Astronomers may think the accretion model is correct because planet hunters have been targeting mostly young, sunlike stars.
