In this paper we discuss an alternative track for migration that can explain the existence of Hot Jupiters observed in close orbits around their stars based on a novel interpretation of established work. We also discuss the population of sub-Earth rogue planets that would be created via this migration method, which would be on the order of 2 to 40 billion, many of which would still be present in the Galaxy and potentially detectable.
