They only have to observe it for a few days to get a grasp of its orbit. That tells them the direction and speed of the "planet." They use formulas developed by Kepler and Newton to work out the rest.


don't forget tycho brahe. ;-)


Brahe couldn't calculate his way out of a wet paper bag. I don't even have him in my top ten, to be honest with you. His stats are all based on the system, not on his individual talent. I've got Newton at 1a, Kepler at 1b and then Pythagorus, Pascal, Fibonacci make the next tier.

Seriously, I think Brahe's medial isn't fully healed from that carpal he had, and I doubt he's going to come close to last season's numbers with that quill. He's bound to go down again.


What about the questions with Kepler's O-line. There is no way I would draft him top 2.....oh, wait, this isn't the football leftovers forum :-/ :-b

Because, since 1930 (I think) there have always been 9 planets in our system. Now, there are 8. My world is crashing all around me and I don't know what to do now....
