Pasachoff The Cosmos 65, Note that the theorem of the cinetic moment comes directly from the second Kepler's law law of the areas , coming from the fact that the gravitational interaction is a "central" force. The universal nature of gravity was identified by Newton in his work "Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy".

Newton was the first to realize that the apple falling from a tree and the Moon revolving around the Earth obey the same law and that their motionss are in fact similar. This law requires the instantaneous transmission of forces in space. Celestial mechanics is then the application of Newtonian mechanics and of the fundamental principles of mechanics applied to the bodies of the solar system. The universal gravitation explains almost everything : -the motions of planets and their satellites -precession and nutation - tides.

It does not explain the excess in the advance of the perihelion of Mercury. For explaining this point, it will be necessary to call the theory of general relativity for which: -there is no absolute time -the notion of Galilean reference system is no longer relevant -the force-transmission is at the speed of light, and not instantly. In a first approximation, Newtonian mechanics with some additives explains perfectly the motions in the solar system. But before describing this complex case, it is primarily concerned to understand the problem restricted to two bodies.

The 2-body problem The 2-body problem deals with two solid reduced to their center of mass, only to interact. This problem is analytically soluble, relatively simply, working in the center-of-mass system and the rest of the universe is forgotten, the center mass is isolated and provides a good Galilean reference system for the study of motion.

This results from the fact that the angular momentum of the system is constant, because the interaction is central, always directed towards the barycenter of the system. This invariant results into the eccentricity vector, and the path of a body relative to another is like a circle, ellipse, parabola or hyperbola.

This trajectory, in the plane of the motion is defined by its semi-major axis a and by its excentricity e. But if we look a little more closely, we realize that we have a very large body, the Sun, a thousand times more massive than the largest planets, Jupiter, surrounded by small bodies revolving around it. Each pair Sun-Earth is a 2-body problem. For modeling motions in the solar system, we will start from the simplified problem in which trajectories of the planets are ellipses but whose elements of these ellipses will vary over time.

This basic ellipse is called osculating ellipse. For each planet we will consider a two-body problem perturbed by other planets.

Lagrange also noted that in a two-body system, it exists equilibrium positions where an additional body could remain captive. These positions are called today Lagrange points of the two-body system. Only L4 and L5 points are points of stable equilibrium. Asteroids are trapped on these points of the orbit of Jupiter and of Mars. Points L1 and L2 of the Earth are used to install telescopes for observation Soho, a satellite observing the Sun at L1 and Gaia, an astrometric satellite of observation of the galaxy at L2.

Points L1 and L2 are 1.
