Abstract

The standard picture of planet formation posits that giant gas planets are over-grown rocky planets massive enough to attract enormous gas atmospheres. It has been shown recently that the opposite point of view is physically plausible: the rocky terrestrial planets are former giant planet embryos dried of their gas ``to the bone'' by the influences of the parent star. Here we provide a brief overview of this ``Tidal Downsizing'' hypothesis in the context of the Solar System structure.
