DJ Sadhu’s videos are very pretty, and do have some basis of truth in them. But in my opinion that kernel is lost due to the way he based this on Bhat’s distorted view of the Universe.

It seems right, or looks cool, or appeals to some sense of how things should be. But how things should be and how they are don’t always overlap. The Universe is a pretty cool place, and works using a fairly well-regulated set of rules. We call those rules physics, they’re written in the language of math, and trying to understand all that is science.

Phil Plait methodically tears the viral “helical solar system” videos of DJSadhu into small pieces. http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2013/03/04/vortex_motion_viral_video_showing_sun_s_motion_through_galaxy_is_wrong.html
