When people say Venus is the closest, they probably mean that Venus has an orbit closest to Earth’s

Seeing the moon in the thumbnail, I almost thought this was going to be a video about how the ESA, Asimov, and others have argued for recognition that the Moon is not actually a moon but rather Earth's partner in a binary planet system.

I always thought of it in terms of "which planet's orbit is closest to that of Earth?" Real simple answer to that one.

So here's the thing, I'd tend to think about "who's the closet" in terms of orbits. It makes the line work.

I think a relevant question would be "which planet has the closest orbit", which i guess could overlap with 3 but not necessarely so as orbits take different amount of time.

If you could it as a planet( some do ) Luna is the closest planet to Earth. If you do not count Luna as a planet, Venus is the closest on average, but sometimes Mars gets closer.

It's not even that deep, because most people when you ask the question are actually thinking "which planet's orbit is closest to earth's". Whether that makes sense or not, it's the reason we answer "Venus". Nothing weird going on here, just people (correctly) answering an incomplete question, as you said.
T33K3SS3LCH3N - 4 måneder siden
I think the basic question of "which planet is closest" is really thought of as "whose orbit is closest to earth's". So for each point on our orbit we look for the closest point on any other orbit, and in that case the answer is simple to see, even if slightly harder to correctly calculate. But just comparing the average distances to the sun already yields a decent result.
It's still interesting how different that can be from the actual distance at a given moment in time.

I've always understood this question to mean "Which planet is closest at perihelion? What is the planet's closest approach to Earth?" With that precise meaning (which is the natural meaning people assume), the answer is Venus. Which you state in question 1 in the video. The other questions are interesting, but not what people assume or mean.

I actually thought of it in an Analogue way; Gravity takes the shortest path; and all planets circle around the Center of Mass of the solar system near the sun. .... So it made very logical sense to me that the close you are to that COM the closer you are to all other planets going around it.

I saw that moon display when it was in Bristol, July 2018. It's really impressive close up. (Also, I think the universe is insistent on me seeing the same things over again. I just saw an older episode of QI where this very subject - the closest planet came up. Series Q, Quests 2)

This is one of these situations where something could be taken as so obvious that it would not count as a contribution to human knowledge. Fast forward a few centuries, where everybody is trying to be more precise, and now it seems like new knowledge, at least to academics.

So Grey is bad at geometry. Also the first one would probably be the one most people think of anyway. So he basically stretched the argument so he would have something to talk about.

1:02 Which planet is the closest to Earth usually means which planet's orbit is closest to Earth's orbit. Answer: Venus.

@Sebastião Mendonça Then don't use my definition. I'm going to use this as the only answer worth mentioning. Wasting both our times replying.
Sebastião Mendonça
Sebastião Mendonça - 5 måneder siden
@AvangionQ But its not the only definition, and as such Venus isnt the only possible answer
