Abstract The structure of the world is a construction of philosophers and scientists. It changed all the time. Nowadays we have a chaotic Solar System. The orbit of Earth changes, therefore, on the very long run. With it changed the UV- radiation on the surface of Earth, influencing the number of mutations. This celestial factor plays an important role in the explanation of evolution and extinction which we can see in the fossil record of Earth, and reversed we can reconstruct the orbit of planet Earth. In principle this factor can also explain the loss of life on Venus and Mars
