No?  Each time a planet is perturbed by Jupiter, it gets pulled
further out?  We've recently had a situation where most of
the planets lined up in a line, out from the Sun.  This means
they were perturbed, not only by Jupiter, but by each other!
Please DO point us to the new orbital parameters established
for the NEW Earth orbit, the NEW Mar's orbit, etc. etc.  Give
us a break!  They perturb, and return!  The perturbation is
pre-computed into the orbits, and the orbits are KNOWN upon
return!

Well let's take the Sun, for one.  The Asteroid Belt goes
round and round the Sun, so the Sun's gravity, one would
presume, is a factor.  A NEO is trash from the Asteroid Belt
slung into a different orbit.  Are you presuming it no longer
cares about the Sun, as a gravity influence?  You push it
sideways, and it forgets about the Sun?  Are we being silly
here or what?

You're presuming there are no gravity pulls, not the Earth, not
the Sun, just shoving about that is influencing this hunk of rock!
It goes in an orbit, just because?  Asteroids orbit the Sun, but if
you give it a shove, it will forget about that?  You cannot
REMOVE these influences from that hunk of rock.  If you stand
it dead still, it will listen to the largest gravity influence that
it has at hand, most likely the EARTH.  This is real smart, here!
Like kicking a grizzly bear in the leg and hoping it does not
notice.  Now you've got it going in the wrong direction!  We
will give you the benefit of the doubt here, that you do not mean
to elminate the gravity attractions this hunk of rock listens to,
only set it in a different direction around them.  How do you do
THAT?  Ask the Sun to move?  Invite Mars over for tea?  Even
if you create jets galore, you are only moving it TO THE SIDE,
not changing its relative position to its gravity giants.  Over to
you, Jonathan TATE.
