I will present a new model for the evolution of the Solar System—called the Grand Tack—that invokes a large scale, inward-then-outward migration of Jupiter in the gaseous protoplanetary disk. This model is able to reproduce both the terrestrial planets and the asteroid belt. I will also show how Uranus and Neptune’s growth can, in some circumstances, be accelerated by the gas giants’ outward migration.
