In the outer Solar System, temperatures were low and ice accreted along with metal and rock, forming massive planets that were able to trap protosolar material, including large amounts of hydrogen and helium that the smaller, hotter inner planets could not retain. 2. 1 The origin of the Solar System Any theory of planetary formation that is more detailed than the bare outline given above must seek to explain why our own planetary system has the contents (Table 2 . 2) that it does. It must also account for the variations on that familiar theme being discovered elsewhere in the Universe.
