  • With the availability of considerably more data, we revisit the question of how special our solar system is compared to observed exoplanetary systems. To this goal, we employ a mathematical transformation that allows for a meaningful, statistical comparison. We find that the masses and densities of the giant planets in our solar system are very typical, as is the age of the solar system. While the orbital location of Jupiter is something of an outlier, this is most likely due to strong… CONTINUE READING
