Wow. So much to say, so little understanding of physics.
Well, young Jedi, let’s start by explaining a few things. First, the planets didn’t just form directly out of the Big Bang – the universe didn’t explode into a bunch of stars and planets shooting all over the place like a bunch of balls on a pool table. They formed via various processes of physics. In doing so, nuclear forces and gravity came into play.
When physicists note that an object in motion will tend to stay in motion, that doesn’t mean it never stops – it means it will keep going unless something stops it. Many things can stop it – friction, gravity, etc. In the case of planets, it’s gravity that keeps them going around their associated star.
First, it’s Kelvin. Second, they didn’t “survive” a blast – they were formed from elementary particles after things cooled down a bit.
Well, the extra exclamation points will definitely convince us.
Tell me, where did you “learn” this science?
