This e-book explains the way it got here to be that Venus and Earth, whereas very related in chemical composition, zonation, measurement and heliocentric distance from the solar, are very diversified in floor environmental stipulations. it really is argued the following that those changes will be accounted for via planetoid trap methods and the next evolution of the planet-satellite process. Venus captured a one-half moon-mass planetoid early in its historical past within the retrograde course and underwent its “fatal allure state of affairs” with its satellite tv for pc (Adonis). Earth, nonetheless, captured a moon-mass planetoid (Luna) early in its background in prograde orbit and underwent a benign estrangement state of affairs with its captured satellite.
