Post your interesting Orreries here

My question without notice is for the governor and company of the colony of BD+ 15 3090:

There are literally thousands of terraformable planets in the Bubble, and tens of thousands more within easy jump range of the Bubble. Many of them are cheap and easy to terraform, just needing a minor tweak to the air and maybe an extra billion cubic kilometres or so of water. So why in all the universes are you trying to terraform a giant metallic comet?



Check out the eccentricity on this one: 0.7816. If they ever manage to successfully turn it into an ELW, it will be among the top 10 most eccentric ELW orbits known. But it's as if they deliberately picked the hardest planet in the Bubble to terraform. Maybe the CEO of the colonial venture was channeling Kennedy's "We choose to go to the Moon" speech:

"We choose to terraform BD+ 15 3090 D1! We choose to terraform BD+ 15 3090 D1! We choose to terraform BD+ 15 3090 D1 in this millennium and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.".
