Ride on…

Artistic depiction of what?

Specifically, what do you call those small sections where the tubes become small?

Update:

svgreatest informs us that ye  alma mater is holding the MSRIT Quiz Fest 2010 on the 2nd and 3rd of October! Check out the link for more details. Looks like the quiz master for one of the quizzes is udupendra as well :-)

Answer:

The so-called interplanetary transport network. The pipes depict gravitational pathways that take very little energy to travel along. The tubes get constricted at ‘Lagrange points’ .

    Lagrange Points.
    This depiction of the ITN(Interplanetary Transport Network) is designed to show its (often convoluted) path through the solar system. The green ribbon represents one path from among the many that are mathematically possible along the surface of the darker green bounding tube.Locations where the ribbon changes direction abruptly represent trajectory changes at Lagrange points, while constricted areas represent locations where objects linger in temporary orbit around a point before continuing on

    The Interplanetary Highway. and those are called Lagrange Points

    “It’s a series of tubes…”
    The Interplanetary Transport Network.
    The end points of the tubes are called, “Lagrange Points”.

    OK – depending on where the quizmaster grabbed this image from, it’s either:
    a) vague depiction of ‘wormholes’ – nano-scale holes in the space-time continuum that some theories indicate could potentially be linked to the gravity caused by the mass of planets and starts; or
    b) an artist’s rendition of the gravidic ‘corridors’ that exist between planets in the solar system that connect the LaGrange points in each orbit allowing for a minimum fuel transit between the planets.

    depiction of ‘The gravitational corridors’.
    small sections where the tubes become small is called ‘Spaghetti junction’


  19. Interplanetary Transport Network.
    Those constricted parts of the tubes are Lagrange points.

    Interplanetary transport network – gravitational pathways that take very little energy to travel. The constrictions are Lagrange points around which many small objects (asteroids etc.) orbit even though there is no central body present.
