Giant planet pileups in far-flung star systems: Computer says yes

Re: Hold on a bit...

I believe you'll find each bit is orbiting at its own rate, and falling toward the star at its own rate, the whole system being perturbed by the interplay between the solar wind and gravity.

Remembering, this is happening during system formation, when stable orbits have not yet been established.
