Looking at Sol, we can see that earth-like planets are close to the sun, while Gas Giants are at medium distance with Ice Giants being far out.
Im wondering if this make-up is actually the norm or if it possible (and not highly unlikely) that terran-like planets could be at medium distance, while gas and ice giants could be Close up or very far out.
I suppose it depends on the size and power of the star, so Ice Giants (or planets) are probably always more far out than gas giants or earth-like planets ? However, for true gas giants, could they be closer to the star ?
i.e. would it be possible for a configuration that goes like Star - Jupiter alike - Saturn alike - Mercury alike - venus alike - ice giants ?
