Fig. 1


A fairly typical example of evolution of the terrestrial planet system from our simulations. The semi-major axis, pericentre and apocentre distance of Venus (bottom curves), Earth (curves around 1.0), Mars (dashed lines around 1.5) and the embryo (solid curves) are shown as a function of time. The mass of the embryo is here 1 lunar mass. The embryo is removed by ejection onto hyperbolic orbit after 90 Myr.
