  1. What is the point of the orbit rotating? They both meet at the tips regardless of the spinning, and the spinning of the orbit just makes it less realistic

  2. So the blue dot has a constant velocity? And the only way to explain it was a rotating orbit? But this was wrong and Einstein figured out that the red dot just increases in velocity as it got closer to the center star?
