Will Neptune and Pluto ever collide in their orbits?
Will Neptune and Pluto ever collide in their orbits?. Do You mister or misses has this kind of uncertainty?, If yes then plz get the good answer below this line:
No. Pluto and Neptune are locked into a 3:2 cycle with a libration that ensures they will never come within 18 AU (2,700,000,000 km) of each other.
That means, that the closest Pluto comes to Neptune is about the same as the closest Earth comes to Uranus.
Also, Pluto’s orbit is inclined at 17.14 degrees, while Neptune’s is inclined at 1.77 degrees, so the two are not really co-planar, as a 2D representation (like the one above) would imply.
We at this blog hope that the solutions above could solve your question. Thanks
