It's a simple question really. If Jupiter and Saturn some how collided and combined, would the result be a small new star?<br /> And after this, how would the gravitational change affect Earth and the other inner planets? <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

New star? <br /><br />No<br /><br /><br /><br />Gravitationally perturb earth?<br /><br /> Depends on what caused Jupiter and Saturn to collide.<br /><br /><br /> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><font color="#ff0000"><strong>TPTB went to Dallas and all I got was Plucked !!</strong></font></p><p><font color="#339966"><strong>So many people, so few recipes !!</strong></font></p><p><font color="#0000ff"><strong>Let's clean up this stinkhole !!</strong></font> </p> </div>

Crazyeddie gave a good answer except It might behave like a proto star/ the surface temperature of the new bigger planet might be about 1832 f = 1000 degrees c for a few hundred years, so it would glow red hot. Fussion would not be sustained, so it would be hardly different from present Jupiter after about a million years. Neil
