Very cool, I love this kind of stuff. I would think they were ejected from orbit. I've played with some 3d models in different physical environments and it really doesn't take much for an object to be pushed off its current path.

We have so much to learn, and re-learn. I'm looking forward to the future and any drastic changes, events, in this current history.

Yea, I see where a so-called comet is suppose to come by earth and follow us around starting on June 2nd, 2011..It is called 2009 BD and will get .09 LD in closeness to earth...Seems to follow our orbit for several months according to JPL...

S&F. Read the story during some down time at work and it got me thinking. If that many planets can be tossed out during formation, there must be alot more out there than we currently estimate. Just shows the more we learn, the more we don't understand. The article I read also mentioned the possibility of them forming around brown dwarfs or some similar event. Not to ramble, but I read an article in Scientific American a while ago about the possibilty of planets forming around stars that became neutron stars,destroying the original planets in the system and over time new ones formed
. Will try to find it

Found it, but they only offer a summery unless you subscribe. Here's what they offer though.www.scientificamerican.com...

Wow awsome I always thought it would be kool if planets like thos were discovered, like maybe if they had a huge velocity they could escape star systems gravity or join star systems eventually.

Its amazing how little we know about the universe. There are so many discoveries at the moment I cant wait till ten years time to see what we will know by then. s + f poster, good find

Somebody post a link to Nature that verifies this. There is now at least 5 threads on this citing an article in Nature journal May 19th but not one single link to Nature journal!!!!!
