Earlier this week I wrote about how protoplanetary disk inhomogeneities explain the planet traps that astronomers observe in exoplanetary systems. These traps help explain why it appears that the more we discover and learn about exoplanets, the more evidence we accumulate that the solar system’s planets are uniquely designed to make advanced life possible on Earth. See the following articles for additional evidence establishing the high-level design of the solar system for humanity’s benefit.
