to have 2 suns at each end of a solar system (double red, double blue or one of each) AND also have planets that could sustain human lifeforms.

I'm very curious about this and would like to know what YOU think the living conditions would be like among other things that would effect the people, environment and the planet(s) as well. Please feel free to give your feedback, thoughts and assumptions.

Please consider the following when replying:

1. What would be the orbital direction of the planets.

2. If both suns had the same mass/gravitational pull- what would be the
effect on the planets within that system.

3. Is it possible to have the planets farthest from the 2 suns come close in their orbital path in X(?) amount of years and if so what effect would that have.

4. How could humanoids thrive in such a solar system (if at all).


If you wish to add your OWN consideration please feel free to do so.


Thanks In Advance,


Thedreamur

Forming of planets is possible in binary star systems.

Here's good site:
curious.astro.cornell.edu...
When you wonder something try to remember to check content of that site.


This one is even better:
imagine.gsfc.nasa.gov...
BTW, that's third link given by Google with words: planets, binary and star.


archives.cnn.com...

AWESOME links!!! I appreciate the reply and it gives me things to ponder and consider on my own. I attempted to do research on this subject but came up virtually blank when it came to answers. I guess I worded it wrong or searched under the wrong subject(s).


Thanks Again,

Technicaly a star can not be at the edge of a solar system, the edge of a solar system is the point in which a stars gravity field ceases.

Wrong, gravity don't end at some certain distance, it just gets weaker and weaker when distance to its source is increased.

Ponder on this...binary star system right.... what if....the stars were at either end of the solar system, and the planets instead of making a circular orbit...actually did a figure 8 around both suns...CRAZY

A stars gravity field does not go on forever.
