Yeah, i know they are different, magnetism was used as a mental cue only.
Speed is going to affect what, if anything, is caught in the gravitaional field of a speeding planet. If the planet is cruising along like a SUnday
driver out for a sighhtseeing tour, it will probably attract quite a bit of what it's close to...if it's zipping along like a quark in the LHC..it
will disturb the asteroids and comets, but won't be in proximity long enough for the bodies to be 'shepherded'.
Same principle of why the extreme temperatures up to billions of degrees C generated on Earth in labs and colliders don't melt a hole through the
Earth...because the temperatures are only around for tiny fractions of a second...too fast to cause damage IOW.
If those temparatures were generated and remained for significantly longer, the entire facility / lab / collider would be destroyed.
Extreme speed or otherwise of the attracting body does and will affect what it will 'catch' in it's gravitational field and shepherd along with it.
