Ceres, formally 1 Ceres, is the largest asteroid and the only dwarf planet in the inner Solar System. It was the first asteroid to be discovered, by Giuseppe Piazzi on 1 January 1801. It is named after Cerēs, the Roman goddess of growing plants, the harvest, and motherly love.
Ceres is some 950 kilometres (600 mi) in diameter and comprises about a third of the mass of the asteroid belt. The Cererian surface is probably a mixture of water ice and various hydrated minerals such as carbonates and clays. Ceres appears to be differentiated into a rocky core and icy mantle, and may harbour an ocean of liquid water under its surface.
Didn't equate anything, just pointed out the fact of similarity.
I was named after Ceres daughter so to speak and feel a strong sense of peace and prosperity and goodness when I look at that wonderful little planet.
Our SS secret space program might think of having dark side bases on it. But even if that was tolerated, it would only be one compartment, layer, out of all the other real channels where the good people live. But I doubt they would have any chance to go far with that.
As for channels, the more in depth post is above this short form one, but this is a good description of the real universe.
Consequently we don't see whats in our solar system, we're in our own degraded and programmed compartment.
Earth could have several others moons, all loaded with life, and phased to offset the gravity pull, far above our ant hill science, and yet, we would't know.
Also advanced ETs could take any asteroid or even combine them, and terraform it like that too. Depends whether they needed the space. And we would see a frozen planet of blue and water.
But one object captured by Jupiter in the mid 1900′s was later able to escape from the planet’s clutches. Researchers have found comet 147P/Kushida-Muramatsu was captured as a temporary moon of Jupiter, and remained trapped in an irregular orbit for about twelve years. “Our results demonstrate some of the routes taken by cometary bodies through interplanetary space that can allow them either to enter or to escape situations where they are in orbit around the planet Jupiter,” said team member Dr. David Archer.
With this discovery, five such objects have now been discovered where the phenomenon of temporary satellite capture (TSC) has occurred, but this new research suggests it might happen more frequently than was expected. Kushida-Muramatsu orbited Jupiter between 1949 and 1961, the third longest capture period of the five objects.
Doesn't say that these objects were calculated to have been captured temporarily by Jupiter, but discovered. That should mean it was observed, probably looking through photos.
Kushida-Muramatsu orbited Jupiter between 1949 and 1961, the third longest capture period of the five objects.
However, the research team used recent observations tracking Kushida-Muramatsu over nine years to calculate hundreds of possible orbital paths for the comet over the previous century. In all scenarios, Kushida-Muramatsu completed two full revolutions of Jupiter.

There is nothing in Newtonian physics that explains these spiraling projections. Anyone who has a decent grasp of calculus can see that.
Having looked into it further, then yes, what they are calling research and discovery is nothing more than mathematical modelling.

Well......instead of some woo-woo from a someone who just writes mishmash, here:

(A Teaser From Act I):
....."She rejects Newton's second law as an arbitrary definition or convention, and maintains that it is not force that is equal to mass times acceleration, but weight.
" Her equation for 'linear force' is F = ad (acceleration times distance). Her equation for 'circular force' (including gravity) is F = aA, where a is acceleration and A is the area of a circle with a radius equal to the mean distance of the orbiting body from the central body. This equation implies that the acceleration due to gravity declines by the square of the distance, but that the gravitational force of the Sun, Earth, etc. is constant for any body revolving around it. In newtonian theory, by contrast, it varies according to both the mass of the orbiting body and its distance from the central body.
Acceleration and forces
The term g-force is technically incorrect as it is a measure of acceleration, not force. While acceleration is a vector quantity, g-forces are often expressed as a scalar, with positive g-forces pointing upward (indicating upward acceleration), and negative g-forces pointing downward. Thus, a g-force is a vector acceleration.
G-forces, when multiplied by a mass upon which they act, are associated with a certain type of mechanical force in the correct sense of the term force, and this force produces compressive stress and tensile stress. Such forces result in the operational sensation of weight, but the equation carries a sign change due to the definition of positive weight in the direction doward, so the direction of weight-force is opposite to the direction of g-force acceleration:
Weight = -mass x (g-force acceleration)
The origin of the Martian moons is still controversial. Phobos and Deimos both have much in common with carbonaceous C-type asteroids, with spectra, albedo, and density very similar to those of C- or D-type asteroids. Based on their similarity, one hypothesis is that both moons may be captured main-belt asteroids. Both moons have very circular orbits which lie almost exactly in Mars's equatorial plane, and hence a capture origin requires a mechanism for circularizing the initially highly eccentric orbit, and adjusting its inclination into the equatorial plane, most probably by a combination of atmospheric drag and tidal forces, although it is not clear that sufficient time is available for this to occur for Deimos. Capture also requires dissipation of energy. The current Mars atmosphere is too thin to capture a Phobos-sized object by atmospheric braking. Geoffrey Landis has pointed out that the capture could have occurred if the original body was a binary asteroid that separated under tidal forces.
The near-Earth asteroid 3753 Cruithne is now known to be a companion, and an unusual one, of the Earth. This asteroid shares the Earth's orbit, its motion "choreographed" in such a way as to remain stable and avoid colliding with our planet. This relationship was revealed in a paper by Paul Wiegert, Kim Innanen and Seppo Mikkola, and published in the British-based science journal Nature on June 12, 1997. A brief non-technical description of the motion of Cruithne is presented below. However, Cruithne's path is much more complicated than simple satellite motion; pondering the diagrams carefully should help clarify matters.
