Modeling Dark Energy -- Gravimetric Analysis of a Tensegrity Icosahedron Simulates Universal Accelerated Expansion

Authors: R. G. Chester

Tensegrity structures exhibit several counterintuitive behaviors. Among these is expansion resulting solely from internal tension. Replacing the physical tendons of a six-strut tensegrity icosahedron with classical gravitational attraction suggests that universal accelerated expansion may be due to ordinary gravity acting solely as an inverse second-power attractive force. Speculation is included on the ultimate fate of the universe.
