I know that we have some solar system analogs. But is there a limit to it?


Most of the conditions involved in condensation seem laboratory-reproducible, so I would imagine these conclusions are on a pretty solid empirical base. Not my specialty, though.

What if we turn the question around- Why wouldn't liquid iron/titanium droplets form around particulates on hot Jupiters - just as they do on Earth and Venus?

  • $\begingroup$ Wow cool - do you have any links to condensation of other fluids on other particulates? $\endgroup$ – InquilineKea Aug 10 '11 at 22:23
