    Re: Leap Second 2022/Three Body Problem
    From: Greg Herdt

    The holy grail of the three body problem has always been a closed form or analytical solution.  My impression from reading the article you linked is that the authors of the paper have not advanced that agenda, but may be providing insights on where solutions are more likely to be found.  Interesting work on a fascinating problem.  Thanks for sharing.

    Predictably, the IERS announced yesterday that there will be no leap second introduced at the end of June 2022. The current UTC-TAI value of -37 seconds will presumably remain in effect until at least the end of December 2022.

    Also, I read an article the other day about some physicists who had made siginifigant progress in the search for a solution to the three body problem. The article hypes it up [of course] as "cracking" the problem, but I'd be very interested to hear everyone's thoughts.
