New gravitational ‘superhighway’ system discovered in the Solar System

Posted by in category: space travel

A new ‘superhighway’ network running through the Solar System has been discovered by astronomers, and it could speed up space travel in the future.

Researchers from the University of California San Diego looked at the orbits of millions of bodies in our Solar System and computed how they fit together and interact.

The highways allow objects to move through space much faster than previously thought possible – for example, travelling between Jupiter and Neptune in under a decade.
