## Measuring the solar system by the Earth is wrong!

All traditional charts of solar system distances are based on the measure of the Earth’s distance from the Sun, known as one Astronomical Unit. Distances of the planets are thus shown as follows:

Planet | Distance
from the sun in km (000) per NASA |
Distance
in AU per NASA |

Mercury | 57,910 | 0.3871 |

Venus | 108,200 | 0.7233 |

Earth | 149,600 | 1.0000 |

Mars |
227,940 | 1.5237 |

Jupiter | 778,330 | 5.2034 |

(Note: The linked page at NASA shows more decimal points, but calculated results are only accurate to the number of decimal places in the values used, which in this case is the distance in kilometers.)

## Mercury should be used as the base measuring unit

If you instead base solar system measurements on the distance of Mercury from the Sun, you get these measures:

Planet | Distance from the sun in km (000) |
Distance where Mercury equals 1 |

Mercury | 57,910 | 1.0000 |

Venus | 108,200 | 1.8684 |

Earth | 149,600 | 2.5833 |

Mars | 227,940 | 3.9361 |

Jupiter | 778,330 | 13.4403 |

## Only then can the planetary relationships be seen

It’s a simple change, but this new view unveils an incredible insight into the relationships among the planets. Each of these distance measures can be represented with an elegant pattern of simple integers from 1 to 6 appearing in roots, multipliers and exponents:

Mercury = 1 = ½ (√1+1) |

Mercury at aphelion = ½ ( √2 + 1 ) |

Venus = Mercury * (½ ( √3 + 1 )) ^{²} |

Earth = Venus ^{¾} * (½ ( √5 + 1 )) |

Mars = Earth ^{¾ }* (½ ( √6 + √2 )) |

Jupiter = Mars * ( √2 + 2 ) |

Note: √x indicates the square root of x

## The accumulation shows the distance of each from the Sun

The distance of each planet from the Sun, using Mercury as 1, can thus be represented as an accumulation of these relationships. An alternate representation of the same number is used for Venus to Earth to add insight to the interesting pattern that develops:

Mercury= ½(√1+1) |

Venus = (½(√3+1)) ^{²} |

Earth = ((½(√3+1))^(½(√4+1))*(½(√5+1))) |

Mars = ((½(√3+1))^(½(√4+1))*(½(√5+1)))^¾*(½(√6+√2)) |

Jupiter =(((½(√3+1))^(½(√4+1))*(½(√5+1)))^¾*(½(√6+√2)))*(√2+2) |

## The results are amazingly accurate

The distances calculated by these formulas are almost identical to the relative distances published by NASA:

Planet | Published distance from the sun in km (000) |
Relative distance from Sun, where Mercury=1 |
Alan Bennett’s calculated value per above |
Degree of Variance |

Mercury | 57,910 | 1.0000 | 1.0000 | 0.0000 |

Venus | 108,200 | 1.8684 | 1.8660 | 0.0013 |

Earth | 149,600 | 2.5833 | 2.5833 | 0.0000 |

Mars | 227,940 | 3.9361 | 3.9365 | -0.0001 |

Jupiter | 778,330 | 13.4403 | 13.4399 | 0.0000 |
