If our solar system reversed...

A solar system is a system that has a star, that star is a parent to many planets. We have our own solar system, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus & Neptune. If the dwarf planets were included it will be: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Ceres, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Makemake and Eris. In reverse the two gas giants in our solar system, Jupiter & Saturn will be in the habitable/goldilocks zone, this is where life can form. If this happened Earth will be replaced by Saturn while Mercury will be Neptune. If this happens Mercury has the fastest orbit in our solar system so it might be able to gain some heat. Uranus's icy oceans will melt making it evaporate and it will make it a wasteland. Earth's oceans begin to freeze making the temperature -178 degrees Celsius. If the gas giants were in the habitable zone it will still not have the right building blocks, they both don't have a surface.

  1. Wow Kareem this is such an interesting thing to think about! Do you think it would be good to live on Jupiter or Saturn and why? I would love to hear more about this! Also the other planets you have named are they dwarf planets?
