The determined-chaos phenomenon in the dynamics of space tethered systems is analyzed. A model problem the essence of stochastic regimes of motion in the oscillations of masses in the internal degrees of freedom is formulated. A number of calculus approaches to the phenomenon is considered, and the supposition is made that it is impossible to define the essence of the phenomenon by the mathematical methods traditional for mechanics.
