The Bending of Light Near Massive Objects is not Due to Their Mass, But Due to Their Size: Diffraction Black Holes Are Objects with Cosmic Size.

Authors: Henok Tadesse

The bending of light near massive objects is not due to Newton’s gravitational field or Einstein’s curvature of space time, according to the theory being proposed in this paper. It is caused by the phenomenon of diffraction of light due to the huge size of the cosmic objects. The size of the object is so huge that its surface curvature is so small as not to allow a light beam to escape. The light beam can easily diffract around the surface of the object because the surface curvature is very small due to the its huge size. The black- hole effect requires two conditions: 1. Nearly spherical shape ( curved surface) of object 2. The size of the object should be greater than some critical size. Therefore, the observed bending of light beams by the sun (taken as an evidence to confirm the general theory of relativity) is not due to the Newtonian gravitational field of the sun or Einstein’s space –time curvature. Light scattered from the huge size object (the black- hole) and light passing by it are all diffracted around the surface. The size of the black-hole object is so enormous that light cannot get sufficiently far from it to escape its diffraction effect ; this means that the black hole has significant effect even on light rays very far away from it due to its cosmic size. Phenomena such as gravitational lensing can equally be explained by the theory presented in this paper.
