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.
