Re: Neptune

Hi;

They say that the orbit predicted by Adams and Le Verrier diverged by such a large amount that it was extremely fortuitious that the sighting was where they predicted! A few yours later and it would not have been found.

There is another story that Galileo first observed it around 1613 - 1614 but due to bad weather failed to see that it was a planet.

Thanks for the page.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Re: Neptune

Neptune of course. Galileo observed it first but because of bad conditions he did not notice the large motion indicative of a planet rather than a star.

Re: Neptune

That I can not say. He lived down the block from me in Little Italy but he was very old and did not like kids. When I would go talk to him he would hit me with a stick repeatedly. Later on we strung him up.

Re: Neptune

It would be impolite to talk about him, especially after we strung him up,
