Experiments show that the gravitational mass of a test mass will increase when heat conducts upwards through it. A ~489 gm copper hemisphere was placed above a 1000 W heat element and below and two ice-filled copper containers. After 400 seconds of heating, the gravitational mass of the hemisphere had increased by 9.6 % or 47gm. If the sun's warmth decreases earth's dayside surface gravity by as little as 0.08 %, the produced pressure imbalance at its center will be enough to account for its centripetal acceleration towards the sun. This calculation suggests that bound systems such as stars, planets, galaxies and clusters have residing in them powerful "threedimensional lever" that can be activated by the slight warmth of a outside source of heat. Since with all these objects heat conducts from their centers outwards, an experimentally backed means becomes available to explain why they are bound that does not depend on the putative dark matter or the mysterious attractive power of mass. Observations indicate that the cosmic star formation rate declines at z ≈ 1 . They also indicate that at zt=0.61-0.21+3.68(1σ) that cosmic acceleration commences. If the former causes the latter, an experimentally backed way becomes available to account for cosmic acceleration that does not involve vast amounts of energy coming out of the vacuum.
