<p>Applying the quantisation of action variables to a theory of gravitation one derives discrete values for planetary distances from the sun. The calculated values agree with the observed values of all the planets. The derived equation also applies to the exoplanets. The application is similar to that of the Wilson-Sommerfeld rule for atomic orbits.
