Yes, you read that right. What are the highways of the solar system? It is a network of expressways discovered by astronomers. They would make it possible to travel through the solar system much faster than before. Comets and asteroids would get from Jupiter to Neptune in less than a decade. Spaceships would travel to the limits of our planetary system relatively quickly.
Decades, not thousands of years
Researchers at the University of California at San Diego studied the dynamic structure of these routes. They formed a series of interconnected arcs within so-called spatial varieties. They stretch from the asteroid belt to Uranus and beyond.
This “heavenly freeway” or “heavenly freeway” has been in operation for several decades. Not like the hundreds of thousands or millions of years that normally characterize the dynamics of the solar system. This information was expressed in a statement.
The most noticeable arch structures are associated with Jupiter. This planet exerts great gravitational forces. The population of comets in the Jupiter family is controlled by such strains for unprecedented periods of time. Some of these bodies collide with Jupiter or are expelled from the solar system.
How were these structures defined? Numerical data have been collected on millions of orbits in our solar system. Then it was calculated how these tracks fit into the already known spatial variants. The results need further investigation. The highways of the solar system could be used by spacecraft. They would also help us monitor asteroid and meteorite encounters. Or the growing population of artificial man-made objects in the Earth-Moon system.
