    I just found this so weird that I wanted to share it.

    Apparently you can travel the solar system cheaply if you are willing to take the "scenic" route.

    Okaaaay.

    It's sort of predictable/obvious once you actually think through the issue of all the interactions of gravity from all those various sized objects moving about on their own paths, but all constrained by their relationship to the sun.

    But thinking of it for yourself without someone else prompting you? That's different.
