And this fits according to the gravity of the object in question?  Your
relatively tiny planet, 23 times the mass of the Earth, can orbit WAY
out there in a circle, and still be under the control of its
gravitational center?  You have such examples, in the Universe you have
observed, do you?  Is it that you don't want to hand Nancy a victory,
or ourselves, that you are making a fool of yourself here?

You are presenting the inadequacies of your math formulas as a REALITY
that others must deal with.  Please, try to stretch your mind.  What
man has created, in his limited thoughts, is NOT the limits that the
Universe imposes!
