Powers of Two

Here is an xml that has powers of two as planets. The names are not values, the names are the power, so 2^x.

That's cool.

Can you elaborate on what you did?

I see that 0 is at the distance of Earth from the Sun.

And 1 is a twice the distance?

2*0=0

0 is the distance of the Earth from the Sun
0 is twice that distance.
But 0=0, so twice that distance is the same distance.

2^0 = 1
2^1 = 2

powers, not multiples. ;)
