I hereby present the TYCHOS model, the only existing configuration of our “solar system” fully consistent with astronomical observation, physical reality and sheer logic. Earth orbits in the middle of the Sun-Mars binary system, moving at the tranquil pace of 1 mph. It completes one orbit in 25344 years – a period commonly known as “the precession of the equinoxes”.

Tycho Brahe was (almost) right. Copernicus was (completely) wrong – all along.
Tycho’s proposed ‘geo-heliocentric’ model had the orbits of the Sun and Mars intersecting – much like the vast majority of our visible star systems. In other words, he had correctly (yet unwittingly) interpreted the binary nature of our solar system. Since no binary star system had yet been observed in his time, Tycho had no way of making sense of his own observations. He then made a most horrendous mistake – i.e. when he entrusted the young Kepler to solve the baffling yet crucial & all-important behavior of Mars. The rest of this tragic ‘mishap’ (which has set back humankind’s cosmo-logical knowledge by 400+ years) is recounted in due detail in my book, “the TYCHOS model” .
