Ultimate Solar System

The Building the Ultimate Solar System series explains how I would go about building a new Solar System.  My goal is to maximize the number of potentially life-bearing worlds in a single system.  I take a bottom-up approach.  I first discuss the pieces involved — stars, planets, orbits — then put them all together.

Here are the posts:

  15. I’d like to ask if its possible to do what you did with the dozens of habitable earths around a star but with a gas giant planet, say around Jupiter mass? I’m asking because I think it would be interesting to build a habitable shell over a Jupiter mass planet then engineer all the orbits around the planet you’ve shelled over with moons of roughly Mars to Earth mass for more variable habitats.

    • Sure, it’s easy to build the same kind of setup but with gas giants. A much smaller number of planets can fit within the habitable zone since they are so much more massive, but it’s very simple to do.
