Solar system 8 + pluto stability watch
11/11/06 at 10:11:56
 
running the system as is @16K TS long term probably serveral months for this one to get done I plan on continuing to watch it for at least 100 Myr, if not more.  current estimates place progress @ 2 Myr per true day.
 
I think that in the case of the 5 Gas giant sim if they had had inclinations of at least +/-1 deg or more it would have remained stable.

Are you starting with a true solar system representation including all 8 planets and Pluto?

Yes I'm Using the "Only planets" sim that comes with GSIM.  I want to see if there are any potential ejections or major orbital interactions over time @ 16K.

I wouldn't use that simulation if you're planning on dedicating a lot of your computer's time.  It was created under the old version as a quick solar system simulation.  The later simulations have a slightly more accurate solar mass.  Also, that sim starts out at 65K time step, so you've already lost some accuracy compared to a 16K run.  Also, the planets with moons completely ignore the moons, rather than include them in the planet mass as a system mass.
 
Try this instead:
http://orbitsimulator.com/gravity/simulations/PlanetsPlutoBigAsteroids.gsim
 
Instead of using Earth, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune & Pluto, it uses the barycenters of their systems.
 
It also includes the 5 most massive asteroids.  JPL lists Ceres, Pallas, and Vesta as small perturbers for all planetary orbits.  Hygeia and Juno are also thrown in.
