Hopkins WriteUp

Hopkins ( 1932 A467478-E Ni ) circa 1116

Hopkins' system is an astronomers' enigma. Every body in the system,
and there are more than 20, orbits in an irregular manner. Most orbit
out of the solar plane, and many swing inside and beyond the orbits of
their neighbours. There are several stunningly close conjunctions, and
these are a major tourist attraction on Hopkins itself. An inevitable
side effect is that Hopkins tides are complex and severe, with the
result that most habitation is well in land and high up, and sea
transport is minimal.
