The journey of an Earth-like planet (green) in the Solar System -point of view of the virtual planet- [Le voyage d'une planète virtuelle identique à la Terre (verte) dans le système solaire -point de vue de la planète virtuelle-].




A virtual Earth-like planet (green) is added to the actual Solar System. Each frame of this animation corresponds to a particular trajectory -with a duration of 498 terrestrial years- of this planet when moved from beyond Pluto -bottom left- to the Sun -top right- and 16.pi rotated (see figure "The journey of an Earth-like virtuel planet (green) in the Solar System -heliocentric view-"). For each of these trajectories, the 11-body system is visualized with the virtual planet at the origin of coordinates.

The relative trajectories look non periodical and even chaotic. It is worth noting that the same phenomenon can be observed with with pure uniform circular motions.

See some interesting Virtual planet points of view -on the right-hand side- (with the related Heliocentric points of view -on the left-hand side-) from this interpolation:

The Solar System with a green virtual planet -heliocentric point of view-  ==> The Solar System with a green virtual planet -virtual planet point of view- 

The Solar System with a green virtual planet -heliocentric point of view- ==> The Solar System with a green virtual planet -virtual planet point of view-
The Solar System with a green virtual planet -heliocentric point of view- ==> The Solar System with a green virtual planet -virtual planet point of view-
The Solar System with a green virtual planet -heliocentric point of view- ==> The Solar System with a green virtual planet -virtual planet point of view-
The Solar System with a green virtual planet -heliocentric point of view- ==> The Solar System with a green virtual planet -virtual planet point of view-



What kind of science -astronomy in particular- could be developped in a such non regular context?
