Define gravity....

Gravity is the attraction one Mass has for another Mass.

Close.....

Electro-magnitism & Air Pressure  :icon_mrgreen:

NO, electromagnetism is different, it operates on the level of the very small, the electrons that circle about a given atom.  Gravity works on the level of the very large, masses which contain many atoms in aggregate.  Air Pressure has ZERO to do with Gravity.  There is no air in space, it's a Vacuum.

Your quoting Quack-Ademia's solid core Earth Model.

It's hollow, it's documented !

At the core of this planet is a Tetragramaton. Not a swirling mass of liquid hot iron.

Crystal is a better conductor of energy than iron.

I'm sure we can agree that Earth IS a capacitor.
I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

I am "quoting" nothing besides the math Isaac Newton worked out a few centuries ago.

Are you in the solid core or hollow camp ? Take a stand.

It is irrelevant whether the Earth's Core is Hollow or Solid.  All that is important as far as Gravity is concerned is the Total Mass of the objects in question, in this case the Earth, the Sun, and whatever other object is hurtling in from interstellar space toward the Gravity Well of the Sun, with the Earth happening to be in the WRONG place at the WRONG time and getting in the way. lol

Science works by observing reality and coming up with a model that best fits, then testing that model to see if it still stands up.That is why they are called theories... They are always being tested.
If you have a definative statement thats not testable or based on observation, or that cant be tested, (Questioned), , thats not science, its a myth, legend or superstition.

I would rather have questions that cant be answered than answers that cant be questioned.

JOW

More Science Distraction.  ::)

If there is a "Fifth Force", does it make a fuckwit of difference here on a resource dpleted and over populated Planet Earth?  No.

These Uni professors do get a nice paycheck though. Plus they wear stylish nice white labcoats. ::)

A 'no-brainer Nobel Prize': Hungarian scientists may have found a fifth force of nature
By Ryan Prior, CNN


Essentially the entirety of physics centers on four forces that control our known, visible universe, governing everything from the production of heat in the sun to the way your laptop works. They are gravity, electromagnetism, the weak nuclear force, and the strong force.

New research may be leading us closer to one more.

Scientists at the Institute for Nuclear Research at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (Atomki) have posted findings showing what could be an example of that fifth force at work.

The scientists were closely watching how an excited helium atom emitted light as it decayed. The particles split at an unusual angle, 115 degrees, which couldn't be explained by known physics.

The study's lead scientist, Attila Krasznahorkay, told CNN that this was the second time his team had detected a new particle, which they call X17, because they calculated its mass at 17 megaelectronvolts.

"X17 could be a particle, which connects our visible world with the dark matter," he said in an email.

Jonathan Feng, a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of California, Irvine, told CNN he's been following the Hungarian team's work for years, and believes their research is shaping up to be a game changer.

If these results can be replicated, "this would be a no-brainer Nobel Prize," he said.
Hungarian scientists are building on 2016 results

Three years ago, the Hungarian researchers published a similar paper in Physical Review Letters, one of the most prestigious journals in physics.

The nuclear physics experimental team had been studying another isotope, beryllium-8, as it decays down to a ground state. They saw electrons and positrons splitting off from the atom at unusual angles.

Those findings, which showed particles coming off beryllium-8 at around a 140-degree angle, were strange and new.

"We introduced such a new particle, which nobody saw before, and which existence could not be understood by the widely accepted 'Standard Model' of particle physics, so it faced scrutiny," Krasznahorkay said in an email.

The findings by Krasznahorkay's team didn't get much attention at first, but they raised Feng's eyebrows. He said he "didn't want to leave potentially revolutionary results just sitting on the table."

In short, it could change physics as we know it, or it could have just been a simple lab error.

"Some people said they screwed up," Feng said.

But he believed the Hungarians were for real. His research group published a paper on the heels of the Hungarians' 2016 work, laying out a theory to observe what Krasznahorkay's experimental team had seen.

They referred to this unseen fifth force in action as a "photophobic force," meaning that it was as though the particles were "afraid of light."

Meanwhile, nuclear physicists around the world set to work looking for errors in the Hungarians' work, and have come up empty-handed over the past few years.

"Some very well-known nuclear physicists have done that exercise," Feng said.

The numbers seemed to add up, and no one could find ways their equipment was calibrated incorrectly.

And Feng said his own team was comparing the Hungarian experiments with "with every other experiment that's been done in the history of physics."

The only way to explain X17 was a hitherto undetected "fifth force."
The findings point toward the Holy Grail of physics

To move their breakthrough idea from 2016 forward, the Hungarians would need to repeat the results again. That's exactly what their 2019 results do.

Feng says there was only a one in a trillion chance that the results were caused by anything other than the X17 particle, and this new fifth force.

He added that if another research group could repeat these results with a third type of atom in addition to beryllium and helium, "that would blow the cover off this thing."

Experimental research groups have already been reaching out to him hungry to do that.

More sightings of the fifth force could lead to scientists settling on a specific name for it, understanding its workings more deeply, and developing practical applications for how to harness its power.

They're leading us closer to what's considered the Holy Grail in physics, which Albert Einstein had aimed at but never achieved. Physicists hope to create a "unified field theory," which would coherently explain all cosmic forces from the formation of galaxies down to the quirks of quarks.

But the universe isn't giving up its secrets easily.

"There's no reason to stop at the fifth," Feng said. "There could be a sixth, seventh, and eighth force."
