English: Simulation showing the outer planets and the Kuiper belt:
  • a) Before Jupiter– Saturn 2:1 resonance.
  • b) Scattering of Kuiper belt objects into the Solar System after the orbital shift of Neptune.
  • c) After ejection of Kuiper belt bodies by Jupiter.

Planets shown: Jupiter (green circle), Saturn (orange circle), Uranus (light blue circle), and Neptune (dark blue circle).

Simulation created using data from the Nice Model.
Français : Simulation montrant les planètes externes et la ceinture de Kuiper :
  • a) Avant la résonance 2:1 de Jupiter et Saturne.
  • b) Dispersion des objets de la ceinture de Kuiper dans le système solaire après la migration de Neptune.
  • c) Après l'éjection d'objets de la ceinture de Kuiper par Jupiter.

L'orbite de Jupiter est représentée en vert, Saturne en orange, Uranus en bleu clair et Neptune en bleu foncé.

Deutsch: Eine Simulation, die die äußeren Planeten und den Kuipergürtel zeigt:
  • a) Vor der Jupiter/ Saturn 2:1 Resonanz.
  • b) Zerstreuung der Objekte des Kuipergürtels in das Sonnensystem, nachdem sich die Umlaufbahn Neptuns verschoben hatte.
  • c) Nach dem Ausstoß von Objekten des Kuipergürtels durch Jupiter.

Gezeigte Planeten: Jupiter (grüner Kreis), Saturn (oranger Kreis), Uranus (hellblauer Kreis) und Neptun (dunkelblauer Kreis).

Die Simulation wurde mit Hilfe von Daten des Nice Models erstellt.
Česky: Simulace vlivu vnějších planet na vývoj Kuiperova pásu:
  • a) Kuiperův pás před tím, než se planety Jupiter a Saturn dostaly do vzájemné dráhové rezonance 2:1.
  • b) Rozptýlení těles Kuiperova pásu poté, co začal měnit svou oběžnou dráhu Neptun.
  • c) Rozptýlená tělesa se dostávala do vlivu Jupiteru, který je vymrštil pryč.

Zobrazené planety: Jupiter (zelený kruh), Saturn (oranžový kruh), Uran (bledě modrý kruh) a Neptun (tmavě modrý kruh).

Simulace byla vytvořena za použití údajů z tzv. Modelu z Nice.
