Our Solar System – a helical model

Friday 24th October 2014

Here is a new (and possibly more realistic) animated model of how our Solar System moves in relation to the Sun.

A helical model, rather than a flat elliptical model – though this animation has caused much debate in astronomical circles. (See also: Is the Solar System really a Vortex?)

Might be an interesting discussion starter for curious students…
