Extended Heinrich series (Ţicleanu et al. 2010) and the possibility of specifying the moment of the Moon’s capture (Ţicleanu et al. 2008, 2009, 2011) open us a unique perspective on the subsystem of internal telluric planets, but also on the entire Solar System. Admission of initial circular orbits and accepting the idea that the Moon was, spatially, the first planet of the Solar System, suggest that until recently the orbits of the terrestrial planets were separated by a standard distance of about 39.53 million km. So, the position of these planets was not controlled by a law like Titius-Bode’s, but it was governed by a planetary ratio specific of the Solar System. So, the original positions of the terrestrial planets were as follows: Moon at a distance of ca. 30.29 mil km; Mercury at 69.82; Venus at 109.35; Terra at 148.88; a missing planet at 188.41 and Mars at 227.94. Until the asteroid belt one could find other planets at a distance of about 267.47 and 307 mil km from the Sun. The initial Moon’s orbit was calculated from the alleged initial orbit of Mercury. So, a planet would miss from the interval between Terra and Mars, and not between Mars and Jupiter. This former planet can be found through the satellites of the giant planets because at a given moment it was attracted by a secondary, conjectural, mass center represented by these giant planets. The analysis of the satellites of these giant planets suggests that Ganymede it is the best candidate to occupy an initial position of a telluric planet between Terra and Mars, with its diameter of ca. 5,260 km. In this context, we can imagine that this current satellite of Jupiter was removed from its planetary orbit about 80,000 years ago, even in the first moment of the extended Heinrich series. But on his way to the giant planets this planet collided with an asteroid and it was moved on a total atypical eccentric orbit which was traveled through in a period of about 3,600–3,500 years, equal to the period of Heinrich series. The minimal proximity to our planet causes a new Heinrich event, marked by new falls of celestial bodies and by large volcanic eruptions. The last such a moment caused the explosion of Santorini caldera about 3,500 years ago. Nowadays it should have taken place another critical moment which did not happen and which cannot be produced in the future. It is therefore assumed that in the meantime this planet was captured by Jupiter, becoming its satellite. If this phenomenon would not have been produced, we could have witnessed in our days to a large eruption in Yellowstone zone. In the meantime, at the moment of Heinrich event 4 (ca. 40,000 years ago), another planet of the subsystem of the internal telluric planets, the Moon, was drawn to the giant planets, but on his way was attracted and captured by Terra, with the price of severe change of the position of the rotational axis of Earth and with an increased duration of its precessional year. In addition the potential planets which lie between Mars and the asteroid belt (? Titan, Callisto) were drawn to the giant planet in a moment that we cannot estimate. So, from this perspective, it results that in prehistoric times the subsystem of internal telluric planets was heavily disrupted and it is thus possible that in the future all its planets may turn into satellites of the large planets. In this context we can imagine that the subsystem of the trans-Neptunian dwarf planets is in a similar situation, so it is obvious that the current evolutionary sense of the Solar System is dominated by the phenomenon of transformation of all small planets into satellites of the large planets..
