Mathematical Evidence For
Earth’s Evolutionary Cycle
4.5 Great Red Spot
Current Age of Astronomical Objects
0.5 Great Red Spot
[- = condense] [+ = expand] [x = multiply by previous diameter]
Great Red Spot is currently condensing, once it is pushed out of the Jovian atmosphere it will begin to expand again: Io -1.18x Europa +1.7x Ganymede -1.09x Callisto +1.07x Titan -1.9x Triton +2.5x Mars +1.87x Earth -1.05x Venus -2.48x Mercury
Orbital Velocity (km/s)
[Mars 24.1 -- Earth 29.8 -- Venus 35.0 -- Mercury 47.9]
Indicates that as an inner planet’s orbit approaches the Sun, its orbital velocity increases.
Inner Planets Correlation of Orbital Period to Diameter
The orbital period of Mars is 686.98 days, divide that by Earth’s orbital period of 365.25 days and the ratio is 1.88. Compare this to the radius of Earth to Mars:
Equatorial radius (km); Earth 6,378.1/Mars 3,396.2 = 1.87 and Polar radius (km); Earth 6,356.8/Mars 3,376.2 = 1.88
There is an undeniable correlation of those planets orbital period to their size. This same correlation is similar but not as precise with Venus in relation to Mercury:
Orbital period; Venus 224.7/Mercury 87.9 = 2.55 and Radius(km); Venus 6,051.8/Mercury 2,439.7 = 2.48
In conclusion these ratios indicate that as Mars orbit approaches the habitable zone it will expand as its sea floor eventually spreads. Also as Venus orbit approaches the Sun that planet will deteriorate and become like Mercury.
This same principle does not apply with Earth in relation to Venus or Mercury which indicates that Earth is currently locked inside the habitable zone.
