No, wrong, fail. The solar system's velocity vector relative to the rest of the galaxy is not perpendicular to the plane of the ecliptic. Can't believe whoever made that has the gall to beg for "donations." They can't even be bothered to do an ounce of real "research" before making their claims.

This is a really good representation of how our solar system moves

It's wrong. The solar system is not a "vortex." Planets do not trail behind the sun as it travels through the galaxy the way that model describes (best seen at the start of his follow-up video: [link to www.youtube.com] ). The solar apex, our solar system's direction of travel relative to the local stars, projected onto the sky has the coordinates of about 18hr RA, +30 degrees Dec ( [link to books.google.com] ) whereas our north ecliptic pole has coordinates of about 18hr RA, +66.5 degrees Dec.

Even if you consider the motion of the local standard of rest within the arms of our galaxy ( [link to www.gb.nrao.edu] ) we are still not moving towards the ecliptic pole and we are still ahead of our sun at certain times of the year. In the latter case the vector of our direction of travel points to about 20h 57m, +47d 53' which is separated from our ecliptic pole by about 30 degrees and places us ahead of the sun relative to its direction of travel in August, whereas in the former reference frame we're ahead of the sun when the sun's position along the ecliptic in our sky is at 6hr RA at the June solstice.

The "helical" model is in direct contradiction to simple empirical evidence. Were it true, Newcomb's own data and calculations on the position of the sun as seen from earth would not work.
