Kent, some more info

Apparently, a quantized structure of our solar system is not such a novel
idea

after all. There are 3,000 Google references for

and about 1,500 for

Already more than two centuries the formula of Titsius- Bode [6] (1772) for

planetary distances are in a center of attention of the researchers, however
its

secret while remains not open. In spite of the fact that the values of distances

differ a little from calculated with formula, due to it the asteroid belt
between

Mars and Jupiter was retrieved, and Adams and Lever'e used it by search of
Neptune.

The sense of this formula became clear after the rise of quantum mechanics
(1915).

Distances of planets up to the Sun are expressed in this formula through
an ordinal

number of a planet that means only one â€“ quantization!
So, the solar System is

quantized?!

Bodeâ€™s Law is a mathematical concept for predicting planetary
distances in this

solar system. The formula was developed by Johann D. Titus, a German
Mathematician

in 1766. Bodeâ€™s Law provides a formula for predicting the
orbits of most planets,

but has exceptions. The formula goes astray when determining the distance
of the

outer planets Neptune & Pluto, and their orbital paths. Also, it does
not address

the yet undiscovered 12th planet, which will become visible to large observatory

telescopes in the late 2001-early 2002, and to amateur astronomers in mid-to-late

2002. [..]
