Counter-intuitive concept of decrease in rate of time and increase in mass due to motion are fundamental conclusions of Special Theory of Relativity(STR). STR successfully explains the decrease in nuclear decay rates due to motion until recently, when nuclear decay rates are found to depend on Earth-Sun distance and solar activities like solar ares. Present paper is an alternate theory to STR and produces the same mathematical results of STR but with completely different meaning of the observed effects due to motion. Utilising simple spherical model for properties of matter, present theory also explains the dependence of nuclear decay rates on Earth-Sun distance and solar activity. On the other hand present theory assumes the rate of time and mass to be constant, thereby keeping the theory self-contained, while accounting for all the relativistic effects, including Newton's Second law of motion which is mathematically inconsistent in STR.
