The Bohr Atom Revisited

Analogy to Solar System

In the atom, spontaneous (or induced) decay takes place from time to time. Two kinds of decay events are classically known.

Alpha Decay

In alpha decay, the nucleus of a helium atom (2 protons + 2 neutrons) is ejected from the decaying parent atom, attended by a burst of gamma radiation.

 If there is an analogous event in stars where energy is lensed by crushing creative gravity at the core into new matter perhaps Jovian worlds could arise within stars then be ejected in a like manner to Alpha decay in the atom.  Beta decay in this model would be analogous to inner rocky planets forming. Is there evidence to support this model?

Beta Decay

In Beta Decay, an electron is ejected from the core, changing the element's atomic number and fundamental properties.

Hot Jupiters

In Classical Nebular Theory, suggested years ago by Kant, the solar system is formed by a swirling mass of gas coalescing over time. In this view, the outer gas giants are only formed in cold regions, while hotter inner worlds are rocky.

Recent discoveries have thrown our understanding of planetary formation into question. ‘Hot Jupiters’ are known as hot owing to the fact that when they are discovered, their position, many times, is oddly too close to their parent star, more than allowed for by the Nebular Hypothesis. It has been offered that planetary orbitals do decay with time.  NASA reports the moon of Earth for example drifts away at an annual rate of 1.5 inches:


One could monitor the orbitals of all planets as a longer-term experiment to verify which direction planets go, and when, and why. It's certainly possible for Hot Jupiters to emerge from their stars and move outwards if there is an explosive or motive force causing this. Spin? Polarity?

The issue arises whether planets may also birth moons in similar fashion, thru gravity lensing and creation of matter from spin energy.  The Great Red Spot of Jupiter, for example, might it be a low-flying moon forming?


Fast Radio Bursts


If one wanted to verify whether planets are birthed within their parent stars, an experiment is needed. When a new planet is discovered, by analyzing star-wobble, eg, or light-dip periodicity, one could also look for an attending burst of radiation. It might not necessarily be a gamma ray but perhaps some analogous, high-frequency event detected often in the vast sky.

Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) are a form of energy in the universe which are observed with extremely high frequency and remain of unknown origin.

Might FRBs be the decay event attendant to planetary birthings?
