Solar System has been taught since our early days or still, they are teaching in schools, Essentially a model that tells us planets move around the sun. It’s the model that looks like this:

Heliocentric Model of Solar System

It’s the traditional orbiting model of the Solar System, or the Heliocentric Model, where our planets rotate around the sun.

While this isn’t entirely wrong, it’s omitting very important facts.

  • The Planets & Sun aren’t stationary. The sun is actually traveling at extremely fast speeds, upward of 828,000 km/hr or 230Km/s

Our whole Solar System is orbiting the Milky Way Galaxy. In fact, it takes 220-Million Years for the Sun to orbit our Galaxy.

Sun Revolves around Milkyway, Planets revolves around Sun in Solar system.

Knowing this to be true, our visual model of the Solar System needs to change and has been inaccurate this whole time. In fact, our planets are barreling through space with the sun, and literally creating a giant Cosmic DNA Helix, and a vortex similar to our Milky Way Galaxy. This Vortex shape doesn’t come if we don’t count the trail path of planets.

Helical Model

Like this but in space, creating a never-ending Sine Wave.

This entails that our Sun & the Planets of our Solar System are never in the same place. When we make one rotation around the sun (365 days), we have already traveled millions of miles through space, meaning these Cosmic Cycles are far grander than we might have previously imagined.

Helical Model of solar system

Here are the “moving” examples of the Helical Model of our Solar System:

Here is an animation representation of how our solar system can be visualized as vortex but not necessarily until we consider trail paths of planets into consideration. Again, it’s not the entire picture of how our solar system moves but a part of the discovery we gathered.

In the next part of this scientific voyage, we’ll look at how it is beyond a vortex shape and bring galaxy movements into focus.
