The gaseous tidal theory is a theory of origin that states that a large star came near the sun and due to the gravitational pull, a gaseous tide was raised on the surface of the sun. As the star came closer, the tide got bigger. The tide detached when the star moved away again and broke into pieces forming the nine planets in our solar system.
