    I started with rogue planets and quickly moved on to brown dwarfs and even small red dwarfs because the results were almost always decidedly unspectacular with smaller objects. You started with...
  2. At what velocity where you modelling the pass? ...

    Some time back I tried it with neutron stars passing the solar system. All were aimed 10 AU out, 100 km/sec, 2 solar masses. Note that this is not the actual closest approach, but the distance they...

    It doesn't. It does however belie the narcissistic notion many American seem to harbour - that their is one and only one right form of governance, and it's the one the divinely inspired founding...

    Those 2.27 mm/s are actually the acceleration at earth's position relative to an external reference frame. The acceleration of a satellite relative to earth will be much lower since the asteroid tugs...

    Not all atoms "go back to the beginning". That's exactly the basis of radio dating. If we find a lot of thorium in places where due to their chemical properties we only expect uranium, we conclude...

    OK, this bothered me so I went to Wolfram Alpha. Turns out a 0.001 moon mass object passing at 0.5 moon distances imparts roughly a delta v of about 0.002 m/s on objects in low earth orbit. For...

    I wrote a little simulator once as a hobby project where I'd shoot stellar sized objects at the inner solar system and found it was hard to throw the inner planets of track even with a body of 1/30...
  8. Halfway between and 1/1000 of the mass is still...

    I was picturing something like halfway between. The moon's pull is back and forth, it pretty much neutralizes itself over a month. A passing body won't--no big deal for anything that has thrust,...

    Well, it (...) would likely jostle everything in Earth orbit.[/QUOTE]

    That much depends on where exactly it passes - between earth and moon is quite a range. If it effectively grazes the...

    What does "Wilson is right. Gould is wrong" handed to do with the rest of your post? I'm seeing some good points, but none Gould would have disagreed with.

    I would have to disagree. Human nature and human interactions have not changed since the days of ancient Greece. Differences in technology does not change that. The only change is the number of...

    Because 9=10-1, and 10 has 2 as one of its prime factors.

    It really is that simple. 15 in base 16, 59 in base 60, 11 in base 12 or 5 in base 6 al show the same "magic" behaviour.
