Abstract

For over three hundred years, physicists and mathematicians have been trying to understand how stable the Earth really is. Could gravitational forces from other planets lead to drastic changes in Earth’s orbit? Will we collide with other planets or be ejected into interstellar space? stability, solar systems, Scott Tremaine, Copernicus, Copernican principle, Kepler, Newton, motion, gravity, N-Body, dynamical system, Laplace, round off error, gravitational microlensing, MOSTorbit, chaos
