Summary:
The Digital Orrery has been used to perform an integration of the motion of the outer planets for 845 million years. This integration indicates that the long-term motion of the planet Pluto is chaotic. Nearby trajectories diverge exponentially with an e-folding time of only about 20 million years. Keywords: Lyapuno function; Dynamics; Orrery; Chaos; Numerical methods; Pluto; Solar system. (jhd).
