Heilborn Symposium ~ Dr. Jacques Laskar

When: Thu., Jan. 7, 4 p.m. 2010

Dr. Jacques Laskar The Paris Observatory "Is the Solar System Stable?" Are planet collisions or escapes possible in the distant future? For more than three centuries, since its formulation by Newton, the question of the stability of the Solar system has fascinated astronomers and mathematicians. Although in the past most of the efforts have been devoted to searches for proofs of stability of the Solar system, the recent results show the contrary, and that planet collisions are possible.
