By Marcus Chown A SUBTLE anomaly in the orbit of the planets in our solar system could prove a controversial idea that goes beyond Einstein. The orbit of the innermost planet, Mercury, departs from what it should be under Newton’s laws. A century ago, when Einstein explained this anomaly, it confirmed his theory of gravity – the general theory of relativity. Now an Israeli physicist predicts that a similar but far more subtle anomaly in the orbits of the planets, if detected, might prove his own theory, known as modified Newtonian dynamics,
