2. Imagine the energy...

It would take an amazing amount to rise that far above the strong gravitational pull of the Sun before being drawn back again.

Amazing video. Thanx for posting.

6. It is like the Sun has another gravitational surface above the one that seems to be its surface.

It is like a reflectional surface. It seems to have a hidden part of the loop too.
