Session 1: Patterns in the Planets
(To be conducted in English)

How are planets arranged? Scientists have found that for a main category of stars that includes the Sun, there are more planets at some ranges of distances from the star, but right next to ranges of distances with fewer planets. These "peaks" and "gaps" follow some important physical properties. These properties might have left more clues in the distribution of planets and how planets evolve.
