The stability of a planet depends not only on its physical properties or distance to the star, but also on the configuration of the planetary system where it was born. A unique process, gravitational collapse of a molecular cloud, can give rise to different planetary systems. The detailed configuration of this cloud, such as its mass, rotation and metallicity, will give the genetic print of the newborn system, conditioning the destiny of the different planets. Following this biological approach, the gravitational interactions between the different components during the first phase of the evolution of the system will let only the fittest, the stablest, to survive.
