Placing Venus in an orbit similar to that of the Earth

Part I: Perturbations after alteration in a third-order theory
  • Osman M. Kamel


Motivated by the recent proposals of A. Abian, we introduce the physical and dynamical considerations for producing a second Earth-like planet on which life sustaining conditions may exist, and hence we acquire multiplication of the cosmic resources of the human race. We investigate the perturbations in our solar system after alteration, through a third order Hamiltonian planetary theory for the eight principal planets. The Hori-Lie theorem, the Jacobi-Radau coordinates, and the canonical variables of H. Poincaré are adopted.
