Re: Re: Re: Global Circulation Model Confirmation Criteria

Analogy:

NASA is sending more vehicles out to the planets. Planning such missions, which typically use gravitation assist type orbits requires us to model the solar system accurately.

Would we send out a mission if the model needed 30 years to provide us an average to let us know where the destination "might" be?

What would be our chance of success.

The three body problem is complex, but it is infinitely less complex than an eco system.
