Jaume Llibre and Conchita Pinol of the University ofBarcelona in Spain say they can explain the Titius-Bode law by gravity if they take into account the sun's motion around the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
By the 18th century, the Titius-Bode law, a numerical sequence that seemingly represented the orbital layout of the solar system and even accounted for the discovery of Uranus at the next appropriate distance from the Sun, persuaded many astronomers to expect that another new planet would be found in the gap at 2.

When Giuseppe Piazzi spotted Ceres in 1801, he was immediately hailed for discovering the "missing" planet that had been predicted by the Titius-Bode law to lie between Mars and Jupiter (S&T: February 2001, page 49).
