If you have a question about this talk, please contact Jean Teyssandier.

The question is whether the fact that Mars exist is a strong and realistic evidence for the migration of giant planets as suggested by the Grand Tack model? And, can Mars form without giant planet migration? The answer to the first question is a no and to the second question is a yes. I will present the recent developments on this topic and discuss models of terrestrial planet formation in which Mars can form with a small mass and within the time consistent with that suggested by cosmochemical studies, and without needing to drastically migrate the giant planets.
