Gravitational Quantization States in Solar Systems

Authors: Howard G. Preston, Franklin Potter
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

We apply the new gravitational wave equation (GWE) derived from the General Theory of Relativity to determine quantization states in solar systems. The GWE has one ad hoc assumption: gravitational quantization states depend solely on the gravitationally-bound system's total angular momentum and its total mass. From the predicted planet and satellite equilibrium orbital distances we make comparisons to the empirical values. To our surprise, we find that the angular momentum in the Oort Cloud determines the planetary spacings! We derive also a mass relationship for orbiting bodies in any planetary system, including exoplanetary systems. We suggest a laboratory experiment with a torsion bar near a rotating mass.

Square Law for Orbits in Extra-Solar Planetary Systems

Authors: Antun Rubcic, Jasna Rubcic
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

The square law rn = r1n2 for orbital sizes rn (r1 is a constant dependent on the particular system, and n are consecutive integer numbers) is applied to the recently discovered planets of Andromedae and to pulsars PSR B1257+12 and PSR 1828-11. A comparison with the solar planetary system is made. The product nvn of the orbital velocity vn with the corresponding orbital number n for planets of Andromedae is in good agreement with those for terrestrial planets, demonstrating the generality of the square law in dynamics of diverse planetary systems. "Quantized velocity" of nvn is very close to 24 kms-1, i.e. to the step found in the quantized redshifts of galaxies. A definite conclusion for planetary systems of pulsars requires additional observations.

The Quantization of the Solar-Like Gravitational Systems

Authors: Antun Rubcic, Jasna Rubcic
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

Mean orbital distances of planets from the Sun and of major satellites from the parent planets Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus are described by the square law, where the values of are consecutive integers, and is the mean orbital distance expected at for a particular system. Terrestrial planets and Jovian planets are analysed as separate systems. Thus, five independent solar-like systems are considered. The basic assumption is that specific orbital angular momentum is "quantized". Consequently, all orbital parameters are also discrete. The number relates to the law of orbital spacing. An additional discretization, related to, i.e. to the scale of orbits, accounts for the detailed structure of planar gravitational systems. Consequently, it is also found that orbital velocity fi-multiplied by is equal to the multiple of a fundamental velocity, valid for all subsystems in the Solar System. This velocity is equal to one of the "velocity" increments of quantized redshifts of galaxies.

Three Solar System Anomalies Indicating the Presence of Macroscopically Quantum Coherent Dark Matter in Solar System

Authors: M. Pitkanen
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

Three anomalies associated with the solar system, namely Pioneer anomaly [3], the evidence for shrinking of planetary orbits [7, 8, 9], and flyby anomaly [4] are discussed. The first anomaly is explained by a universal 1/r distribution of dark matter, second anomaly finds a trivial explanation in TGD based quantum model for planetary orbits as Bohr orbits with Bohr quantization reflecting macroscopically quantum coherent character of dark matter with a gigantic value of Planck constant [11]. Fly-by anomaly can be understood if planetary orbits are surrounded by a flux tube containing quantum coherent dark matter. Also spherical shells can be considered.
