This is a question that has been debated for centuries, and it’s probably not going to be solved anytime soon. Some people think that Jovian planets should form in the middle of a nebula because they are so large; others believe that they would attract too much gas and dust if they were closer to the center, which would cause them to become giant brown dwarfs instead of planets.

For now, it’s a mystery. The nebular theory is the idea that Jovian planets should form in the middle of a cloud of gas and dust called nebulae. The theory suggests that because they are so large, Jovian planets would attract too much gas and dust if they were closer to the center, which would cause them to become giant brown dwarfs instead of planets. For now, though this theory has been debated for centuries no one can say for sure where these gigantic giants should form, only time will tell. This blog post explores what kind of environment might be best suited for forming massive Jovian Planets like Jupiter or Saturn according to recent theories by scientists.
