Let me first of all categorically state that I fully understand that no such planet exists in our solar system. I am fully aware that there is only
one earth in our solar system.
However, let us hypothesize - say I was writing a brief science fiction novel whereby an identical planet to Earth populated with about 10 billion
humans appeared in our solar system by some freak "accident" (it does not matter how, just that it happened).
Now, in what orbit/position would this Alter-Earth have to be in, in order to not negatively affect the state of our own planet (e.g. not cause
devastating earthquakes, tsunamis) and not devastate the entire harmony of our solar system.
Would it have to be in the position of the so-called "Gor" Earth (i.e. "Counter-Earth")?
Cheers in advance.
