Cool animation about how the solar system doesn't operate the way we traditionally view it.

I saw this going around a few weeks ago. Pretty cool, but it's been debunked:

Nice write-up there, and I see what he's saying. The guy (in the original link) gets many fundamentals wrong. Sorry.

It's still a cool video, though.

Its a slick video. As soon as I read the word "vortex," I questioned its legitimacy. The debunking link posted above describes it better as a helix, which it still wrong scientifically but better describes the motion in the video. The heliocentric model that we have is moving through space, so a correct video of that would probably look equally as cool and not be wrong. Somebody with some graphic design skills, get on that.
