LANCASTER, N.Y., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new theory on the forces that control planetary orbit refutes the 400-year old assumptions currently held by the scientific community. Scientific and engineering experts Gerhard and Kevin Neumaier have established a relationship between solar winds and a quantized order in both the position and velocity of the solar system's planets, and movement at an atomic level, with both governed by the same set of physics.
The observations made bring into question the Big Bang Theory, the concept of black holes, gravitational waves and gravitons. The Neumaiers' paper, More Than Gravity, is available for review at MoreThanGravity.com
The theory is based on the following underlying principles:
- The physical mechanism that moves the planets is the solar wind, imparting position and direction to their orbits, and governing all of the moons in the solar system in locked orbits that rotate with the planets.
- The solar wind is responsible for the natural arrangement of the planets and the quantization at the atomic level, reestablishing the link between the solar system and atom. Based on observations, the same order and set of forces that work in our solar system also apply to the atom. Because the solar wind affects all matter on earth, it naturally describes quantum mechanics – the inner workings of the atom.
- The planets are positioned in a quantized order based on a simple equation that accurately predicts the velocity and position of planetary orbits and distances from the Sun.
Using data not available when gravitational theories were formed, such as satellite exploration of space, the More than Gravity researchers hypothesize that the Sun and solar wind control planetary motion and our solar system. Based on research and data collection spanning 50 years, the Neumaiers' intellectually bold theory is a rational effort to provide clarity where widely held notions regarding gravity theory fall short. Based on observations of the pervasive solar wind, the Neumaiers hold that observable physical forces govern planetary direction and alignment without need for invisible, theoretical forces.
More Than Gravity research is based on the following scientific observations:
- Planets in the solar system have a discrete, or quantized, order similar to the atom. The distance, velocity and position of the planets are quantized and driven by the solar wind. Each planetary position can be predicted from a simple equation. Similarly, the velocity of planetary bodies can be described by an almost identical equation.
- The Sun discharges billions of tons of highly charged particles every hour. These particles make up the solar wind and are much more highly charged than we typically see on Earth, travelling at speeds more than a million miles per hour in a spiraling path to the end of our solar system.
- The Sun's differential rotation is responsible for solar wind pattern, which moves out in a spiral along magnetic flux lines. This approximates a pattern of Archimedean spiral in which the force of the solar wind is in the direction that all of the planets orbit.
- The equation for gravity does not require that the planets orbit in any particular direction; any direction of orbit is just as likely as another. Yet all the planets orbit the Sun in a narrow elliptic region of the slow solar wind and none of the orbits exist in the fast solar wind toward the poles. All of the planets in our solar system rotate in the elliptic region that is 20 degrees on either side of the Sun's equator. (This elliptic region is also where the solar wind is substantially lower in speed than at any other latitude of the Sun). The chance that it is random that the planets all rotate the same way and in this same plane is one in 30 billion.
- The underlying measurements for the mass and density of the planets are based on a single assumption that the equation for gravity is correct and the gravitational constant is universal. While all of the planetary gravities that have been measured should be correct, the masses and densities may be incorrect.
- Typically, scientific theory is used to help explain observations. With so-called "missing mass" and other theories such as gravitational waves and the graviton, gravity theory is being defended in the absence of observation; these conditions have never been observed despite advances in science. More Than Gravity presumes that because "missing mass" theories are not supported by observations, the phenomena likely do not exist.
Gerhard Neumaier has devoted five decades to developing and proving his bold idea while serving as president and CEO, and now chairman, of Ecology and Environment, Inc. (E&E), a high technology, knowledge-based network company (NASDAQ: EEI). Kevin Neumaier, E&E president and CEO, and member of Mensa and the Triple Nine Society (IQ at or above 99.9th percentile), brings a natural science perspective to the research and co-authored the paper after all his attempts to prove it wrong failed.
The current theory regarding gravity should be considered incomplete. Using the research paper on MoreThanGravity.com, the More than Gravity team is inviting the broad scientific community to engage with each other to explore the concept of solar winds as it relates to gravity.
