Throwing Planets Around!
Paul Dunbavin (2020)
Between 1999 and revised up to 2018 a series of papers proposing the Planet-Z Hypothesis were published by a group of physicists and astronomers, including the eminent astronomer Willy Woelfli; these would seek to revise and augment the ideas of Immanuel Velikovsky with more realistic physics. The hypothesis would replace Velikovsky's 'Venus' with repeated returns by a Mars-sized Planet-Z during the ice age culminating in a close pass at the end of the Ice Age. This review article seeks to constructively compare and contrast the strands of enquiry to date.
