The Seven Wonders of the Solar System

Today on Discovery Enterprise we present the fifth season opening documentary of the History Channel’s highly acclaimed documentary series The Universe with a grand tour highlighting the magnificent “Seven Wonders of the Solar System”.

In this newest instalment of the Universe we take a close look at seven of the most astonishing wonders of our solar system, such as the geysers of Enceladus; Saturn’s majestic rings; Jupiter’s awe inspiring Great Red Spot; and scale the heights of Olympus Mons on Mars.

    I have a question about the origins of both the asteroid belt, Saturn's Rings, and the oddity of both Jupiter's storms and Uranus's reverse spin and odd angle of inclination. Have you ruled out the possibility that Earth once had a larger moon at a different orbit, that was interdicted and destroyed between the orbit of the earth and Mars? It explains so much, I am surprised you could not statistically determine that it is not only possible, but a good probability, seeing that the same content of Earth mineral is represented by both the asteriods and the Saturn Rings, and the possibilities of collisions after the innitial Comet collision with Earth's second moon, would explain one or two of the Outer Planets' moons, and the odd rotation of Uranus, since if you follow that a collision of such great intensity could have occurred, the subsequent debris and the core momentum would have resulted in both objects being hurled into the outer orbits of these planets, and since it is clear a collision occurred between Uranus and a moon-sized object, it would explain both the shift in inclination, the orbital direction of spin of the planet, and the physical identification of Triton, with its nitrogen rich atmosphere and active geological condition, even in deep space, where the cold is extreme, it explains each and every aspect of such a collision. Like Billiard balls of fluffy material, they would lose some or a lot of their masses, but they would both move forward along the line of travel, thus, one of the moons of Jupiter or Saturn are likely the remnants of a Comet, and the moon, Triton, is the likely remnant of Earth's second moon, which has lost most of its Water surface due to the huge collision, thus its present state of Nitrogen rich, non-gaseous surface, ergo rocky, metalic, surface….In the orbit of Neptune, the outer most large Gas planet.
