      I hope one of the other scientists has a good answer for this question because I know hardly anything about astronomy. 🙁

      I know almost nothing about astrophysics or astronomy so I can’t tell you… You obviously know a lot more than me, because I’ve never even heard of the Oort Cloud! Hopefully one of the other scientists can answer your question.
