Research suggests that Jupiter is the oldest planet in the Solar System

The age of Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, is still a mystery to scientists. According to existing theories, it is very likely that it was formed by the growth of large solid nuclei, followed by the accumulation of gas in them.

Now a team of researchers has been able to analyze the composition of meteorites , finding that Jupiter's solid core is 4.5 billion years old , so its origin came one million years before the solar system was formed.

According to the study, the team demonstrated by means of the analysis of meteorite isotopes that the solid nucleus of Jupiter was formed only one million years before the beginning of the history of the solar system, making it the oldest planet. Due to its rapid formation, this planet acted as a barrier against that material to be transported through the disk, possibly explaining why in our solar system there is no other 'Super-Earth' (an extrasolar planet with a mass greater than that of the earth)

Researchers believe that this could be one of the reasons why in our solar system there is no other planet similar to ours.

Experts hope that this discovery could provide new clues as to how the evolution of our solar system was until today.
