Our Solar System is interconnected by a vast system of tunnels winding around the Sun.
These tunnels, more commonly known as Stable and Unstable Manifolds, are generated by the
Lagrange Points of all the planets and their moons and are found to play
an important role in the formulation of solar system dynamics. For example, these dynamics
can explain how a Kuiper Belt object can be transported to become a Jupiter
comet, eventually evolving into an asteroid that could reach the inner Solar system. The
same formulation of dynamics could be exploited to obtain low-energy interplanetary
spacecraft trajectories and captures and could even be used to identify dangerous asteroids
on collision courses with Earth, and low-energy
strategies for deflecting them onto safer trajectories.
