The motion of bodies in space--such as comets, asteroids, and spacecraft--follow chaotic trajectories, as do excited electrons. The authors discuss how the mathematical connections between these different scale, but otherwise related, nonlinear dynamical systems are helping astrophysics and chemistry.
