Dark matter. All 5 DM partcles, totally resistant to photons / light, (resists the photons that bind electrons to a nucleus) and create the effect we call gravity.

Where does the gravity come from to form a planet or moon in the first place?

Something has gone through our solar system and it had a dramatic effect because it turned the planet Uranus onto its side and Venus now rotates backwards in comparison to all the other planets. We also have a nasty gap between Mars and Jupiter filled with debris.
I wonder if any other planets are made up in a similar way to earth? Our planet is unique and teeming with life so who knows if this is because of how it eventually formed?
That means "it would take this new planet between 10,000 and 20,000 years to make just one full orbit around the sun," according to Caltech.
