orbital resonance

This post at https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2016/01/29/renu-malhotra-nonlinear-reson… … see also the whole paper at http://arxiv.org/pdf/chao-dyn/9406004.pdf … and written by NASA scientist Renu Malhotra. It is basically an introduction to the study of orbital resonance as applied to the evolving solar system. Tall Bloke says it validates the study of planetary motion that is central to him and his friends so it is important to understand the link between planetary motion and variations of the Sun. Orbital resonance is important and plays a role in long term dynamics of the solar system – even the physical evolution of the planets and their satellites (and of course the smaller bodies too – and even the dust and debris left behind by the passage of comets.
