When stuff like that goes viral, it deserves a damn good annoying rant. Not in the way that a popular animated gif insinuates, at least. The helical model feels much more like progress, growth, a journey through space in which we never ever come back to our starting point. And this would go for all the planets. Apparently he thinks this is a problem.
Is he really saying that this is a problem in a heliocentric model…? That was the whole point. I decided to investigate for myself. I learn a lot about the universe by reading these debunking stories. So the motion through the galaxy may look a bit more… wobbly… but not a neat helix of constant radius. As for going on a journey though — well no, not really. Spiral would be much better choice.
This time is highly subjective. But the accuracy of this has been utterly derided as an affront to scientific dignity. For the long answer, I now offer up the stage to astrophysicist Rhys Taylor , who recently posted an in-depth article describing why the planets do yet move… just not like that. If heliocentrism were wrong in the way Bhat describes, then those probes never would have made it to those planets. Mechanical devices may measure fractions and to some extant reliable.
It was extremely long-winded with very little content. Tuesday Dopeness 34 pics. A thousand years from now people will realize that the earth is just a flat disc sitting on the back of a turtle anchored by four elephants at the corners. Then he links a video claiming that the Fibonacci sequence is the fingerprint of God. The orbits of the major planets of the solar system all lie in a narrow plane like being in economy class!
