A new study of comet orbits suggests that the loess plane at which the Earth’s orbit is located may not be the only major quasi-star in the solar system. Arika Higuchi, an assistant professor at Japan’s University of Occupational and Environmental Health, has indicated that a second “empty cway” may be aligned with the plane by tracking the farthest point of a long-period comet from the sun. “Empty uleso” refers to planes that were originally empty but were later filled by comets.
We know that if we look at the solar system, the most obvious fact is that almost everything in the solar system is more or less on the esobital plane, the plane formed by Earth’s orbit. Apart from comets, the orbits of other planets, asteroids, and everything else are within a few degrees of this plane.
The reason is that when the solar system was formed, it was a flat disk of gas and cosmic dust, rotating around a bulge that eventually became the sun. In this disk, fragments also come together to form planets and other things. Even comets are formed in this way, although the interactions of various planetary gravitational fields cause their orbits to disperse in bevels. However, ad places, or the farthest places from the sun, tend to stay in the esody.
By studying the comet’s orbit, Higuchi now finds another way to arrange it. The elliptical plane is at an angle of about 60 degrees from the disk of the Milky Way, which also affects the comet’s orbit. When the comet’s trajectory is mapped, they are aligned not only with the cetastic, but also with the so-called empty ocella, which tilts 60 degrees against the Milky Way disk.
Higuchi then cross-verified this hypothesis with the calculations of the PC cluster at THE NAOJ Computing Astrophysical Center, and analyzed comets in NASA’s JPL small body database, which showed data spikes in both the 1st and empty eesomethals.
However, Higuchi does not believe that these findings will lead to a final conclusion. “The spikes are not exactly in the yrway or the empty esodyway plane, but near them,” she said. “The investigation of the distribution of observed small objects must include many factors. A detailed study of the distribution of long-cycle comets will be our future work. The all-sky survey project, known as the Space-Time Heritage Survey (LSST), will provide valuable information for the study. “
