The planets and rocky debris that remained in orbit were little more than the dust left behind when the gravitational broom had finished its work. The center of mass for the whole solar system the barycenter, around which the sun and the planets all revolve lies within the sun's own atmosphere. As the planets and smaller bodies circle the sun, their ever changing gravitational web tugs the sun back and forth, making it wobble around the solar system's central point. The sun is a fairly typical star, middling in size, big enough to burn steadily for ten billion years, but not so massive that it will run through its fuel and explode as a supernova.

The Principia made Newton famous and formed the foundation for virtually all physical science until the time of Einstein. In astronomy, the mathematics that accompanied his laws explained the forces that shaped elliptical orbits of the planets, allowed for the calculation of their masses, and laid the groundwork for later spaceflight. His perception that gravitation was universal overturned the notion that the forces that governed celestial bodies were fundamentally different from those that guided objects on Earth.
