The Sun and Jupiter as a binary system

  • Fayez Fok Al Adeh


I view the solar system in my paper as basically a double star, with the sun and Jupiter as components. Although the acceptance of this model may still be a philosophical choice, I introduce in my paper powerful arguments in favor of its support. Those arguments cover a wide range of conceptual, physical, and mathematical analysis.
