Detalii produs

Icarus, the planetary science journal, does not publish papers that provide versions of Bode’s law, or other numerical relations, without a sound physical basis.

 

However, the Titius-Bode law led, among others things, to the discovery of the planet Uranus (W. Herschel, 1781). This was the first planet to be discovered since antiquity.
