Countless scientist contributed to the scientific explanation of the solar system from Aristotle (384BC-322BC) who was able to explain phases of the moon to Einstein’s equation’s of general relativity for a standardized, isotropic expanding space. One of the many scientist who discoveries lead to the contribution of explanation of the formation of the solar systems were Emanuel Swedenborg in 1734 who proposed that our solar system evolved out of a cloud of collapsing hydrogen gas and dust. His explanation was later expanded by Immanuel Kant in 1775. Kant, who was one of the first scientists to debate and proposed in 1775 how the origin of our solar system’s planetary, was a common sequence of stars formation. During 1900s was when scientist begun to accept the theory of a recent planetary systems. Kant proposed that a nebula, which is created from hydrogen gas and dust clouds that was pulled together by gravity so that it can collapsed into a flat rotating disk. The disk eventually collapse into the sun and planets. Kant also stated that other formation of solar systems occurs in similar process around the other stars and nebulas in the universe. However, each scientist has their own notions and hypothesis statements of how the formation of the solar system begins. Pierre-Simon Laplace expanded Kant’s theory of the planetary formation in 1796, when he was known as one of the originators of the nebular hypothesis. The nebular hypothesis theory was the most
