EDITOR'S INTRODUCTION 31 Newton embarrassed the vortex theory by showing that celestial phenomena are inconsistent with the vortex hypothesis. In particular, Kepler's laws of planetary orbit cannot be satisfied by vortical motion, while the highly eccentric orbits of comets would seem to cut through the vorticies without disturbing the orbit of planets. Newton concluded that interplanetary space is a pure vaccuum, with gravitational attraction acting across the void.
