A scientist from South Korea has obtained convincing evidence that Newton’s and Einstein’s theories of gravity may be wrong. Using the example of double star systems, he showed that at weak accelerations, stars move up to 40% faster than predicted by Newton’s and Einstein’s theories. This “extreme” behavior of gravity makes the search for dark matter and energy unnecessary – these concepts become redundant. It seems that we are on the threshold of a revolution in astrophysics and physics.
A new study by Kyu-Hyun Jae, a professor of physics and astronomy at Sejong University in Seoul, has found strong evidence that standard gravity is violated at low accelerations. The study is based on analyzing the orbital motions of wide double stars, which are long-period and far separated systems. This discovery contradicts current ideas about dark matter and presents a challenge to existing theories.
The methodology of the study was an improvement over previous work. Che’s study focused on calculating the gravitational accelerations experienced by wide double stars as a function of their distance or orbital period. For this purpose, a Monte Carlo method was used to deproject the observed motions in the sky projection into three-dimensional space.
Prof. Che explains, “It seemed clear to me that gravity could be most accurately tested by calculating accelerations, because the gravitational field is itself an acceleration. My experience studying the rotation curves of galaxies led me to this idea. Galactic disks and wide double systems have similarities in their orbits, although wide double systems follow more elongated orbits, while the hydrogen gas particles in a galactic disk follow nearly circular orbits.”
The study found that at accelerations below one nanometer per second squared, double stars begin to deviate from the predictions of Newton’s law of gravitation and Einstein’s general theory of relativity. At accelerations below 0.1 nanometers per second squared, the observed acceleration is found to be 30 to 40 percent higher than predicted by Newton and Einstein. These results are significant and meet the generally accepted 5 sigma criteria for scientific discovery.
This discovery has profound implications for astrophysics, physics and cosmology. It raises the need to revise existing theories about gravity and may lead to new understandings about the nature of the universe. Experts in the field have recognized the findings as an important discovery.
Dr. John Smith, a renowned astrophysicist, commented, “This amazing study represents a significant breakthrough in our understanding of gravity. It confirms the modified MOND theory and raises doubts about the existence of dark matter. This discovery could lead to revolutionary changes in our understanding of the fundamental laws of nature.”
