The TitiusBode law, which describes the average distances r between the Sun and various planets, may be represented by a new formula, rn = an2. Here a is a constant and n is an integer. If we let a1 = 0.042, the values n = 3, 4, 5, 6 will refer to the terrestrial planets and n = 7, 8 to asteroids. For a2 = 1.2 and n = 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 this formula describes the Jovian planets. In this case Neptune, Pluto, and many satellites also agree with this formula. From this can be developed a similar theory to the Bohr atom model, and we obtain the quantum constant H = (aGM                         )1/2 of the solar system. As such many quantities of the solar system can be quantized. Then the astronomical Schrödinger equation is derived, and the distance rule is a statistical result of planet evolution. Further, an extensive quantum theory should exist that has different quantum constants but similar formulations.
