Contributed talk at Exoplanets III (virtual edition) Kepler's multi-planet systems are "peas in a pod" with planets that are similar in size, regularly spaced, and with low orbital inclinations. This pattern arises during the giant impact stage of planet formation when gravitational excitation between proto-planets compete with the damping by ambient ...
