Not just Earth but entire Solar System Crowded

And you though we live on an overpopulated planet. Turns out the entire Solar System's crowded and there's not enough space for another planet. If another orb gets thrown into the mix, the whole system will get out of whack. With collisions and not enough place to roam. This according to astronomers Julia Fang and Jean-Luc Margot at UCLA. Who after extensive simulations of faraway star systems have concluded there is no more room for another planet.
Solar System is over crowdedIn out own galaxy only 8 balls have survived. This after countless collisions and migrations. They have settled into their own orbits and in their time make their way around their established system. Everything is settled and each planet has its set course. Another planet will create unnecessary confusion and other plants in that galaxy will need to adjust, which would result in all hell breaking loose. The earth is in motion and all is well as it orbits its own star - just as all the other planets in the universe.
