The true understanding of the solar system begins with the giant planet Jupiter. Many myths detail the enormously energetic impact on Jupiter, out of which proto-Venus rebounded, only 6,000 years BP (Before the Present): The birth of Pallas Athene (young Athena) in Greek myth and the Birth of Aditi, the very first event in the Rig Veda, to mention only two. At the highest conceptual level, the birth of Venus reveals that (a) Jupiter is solid, not a gaseous planet as currently believed, and (b) demonstrates that all terrestrial planets were formed as the natural result of such impacts on Jupiter.
These startling revelations are merely the tip of the iceberg, from which a whole new understanding of the solar system (and perhaps the universe
) logically evolve. Astrophysicists, who are not aware of this catastrophic event, believe that Jupiter and Saturn are gaseous planets because of their low densities (1.33 and 0.69 respectively) and temperature excesses. They infer (incorrectly) that their higher-than-expected temperatures arise from the deep interior. This leads to the assumption that they are gaseous, with temperatures approaching 25,000 K in their interiors. This implies that the deep interior is enormously compressed by the weight of the outer layers to such a high density that the only way that the average density could be so low would be that they comprise only the lightest elements, hydrogen and a small amount of helium. Unfortunately quantum mechanical models of the interior failed to give the observed gravitational field, forcing the introduction of a ten/twenty-earth mass at the core, thus violating the assumption that the interior had to be gaseous.

The birth of Venus proves that all the heavy elements in the nascent solar system, except those in the existing terrestrial planets, are distributed evenly within Jupiter. This requires a rigid, low density, non-compressible, solid matrix which encapsulates them. Such a matrix is well known, existing in the high pressure, low temperature environment under the seas of the Earth. It is a solid state formed by cages of water molecules in which ‘foreign’ molecules, primarily methane, are captured, known as methane gas hydrates, which have an average density of 0.7 g/cm^3. The methane molecules are essential to the gas hydrate formation but a small number of the same cages hold all the heavy elements, frozen throughout the planet Jupiter. Saturn has the density of a pure MGH, but the presence of all the heavy elements in Jupiter raises its average density to 1.33.

The methane gas hydrate composition of Jupiter (and Saturn) has a unique feature never imagined by astrophysicists or even science fiction writers. High energy impacts momentarily raise the temperature above 20X10^6 K, triggering a fusion explosion many orders of magnitude greater involving the closely packed H, D, Li,C. N. O . After the initial blast from which a terrestrial planet like proto-Venus formed only 6,000 years BP, a fusion furnace is initiated in the resulting crater where the methane gas hydrates provides a continual source of fuel. In the case of the impact which formed proto-Venus, the initial nuclear conflagration caused a jet of flaming material extending more than a million kilometers into space. This conflagration has continued at a slowly decreasing rate for about 6,000 years having been shown extending 150,000 km into space in an Arabic document dated 800 AD. Although it no longer extends above the tops of the cloud layers it is manifested by the Great Red Spot. More significantly, the heat from the continuing nuclear furnace in the crater provides the so-called ‘temperature excess’ and the released heavy element compounds color the atmosphere, forming a heat-blanket which disguises the point origin of the temperature excess. The flow of gases from the crater also drives the multiple zonal wind bands which circle the giant planet in opposite directions at all latitudes.
The methane gas hydrate composition of the giant planets, essentially water, holds profound implications for the elemental abundances in the solar system – showing a far higher concentration of heavy elements compared to hydrogen than currently believed For example, there are hundreds of earth masses of water alone within Jupiter. The implications for the abundance of the elements in the Sun is not clear. I have suggested previously that the fast-spinning infant Sun may have acted as a centrifuge, spinning off a much higher proportion of heavy elements into the planetary nebula before they had a chance to settle toward the center. However, if the proportion of oxygen in the Sun is as high as in Jupiter, it may constitute a danger to the Earth.
Astrophysicists believe the Sun is 4.6 billion years old and calculate that its total lifetime will be about 10 billion years, at which time it will expand as a red giant and consume the entire solar system. They base its current age on the ages of the oldest rocks in the AVCC (average carbonaceous chondrite) meteorites. However, cyclic catastrophism indicates that all meteorites were ejected from Mars when it orbited the Earth during the Bronze and Iron ages and therefore only indicate the age of Mars. Given the example of Venus’ recent birth, each terrestrial planet has a unique age. Although Mars is the oldest terrestrial planet, we have absolutely no way of determining the age of the giant planets, which formed the nascent solar system. They may have existed for billions of years before that first impact on Jupiter, out of which Mars formed. Thus the Sun may be billions of years older than currently believed and much closer to becoming a red giant.
