Gravitational effects in planetary and stellar bodies

from a configurational perspective.


It is a fairly unanimously accepted, and logical, assumption that stellar and planetary bodies are formed by aggregation of material from dust clouds. Generally referred to as an ‘accretion disc’ from which gravity attracts material to increase the mass of the body. 

This process is initiated as a result of electrical and gravitational attraction and eventually gravitational forces overcome all others and the body is compacted and grows as more material is added. 

Naturally the heavier materials will migrate toward the gravitational centre and the lighter materials will be forced towards the outer layers.

This scenario is fairly realistic to a certain extent but as the body grows gravitational forces will realign and the gravitational concentration will not be at the centre of the body.

Gravitational forces will compact the body but gravity is NOT a compacting force. It remains an attracting force...a force of tension exclusively

Further discussion on the hypothesis

In a solid nickel/iron ball the size of earth this process will not happen ....but in a forming body subjected to dynamic, fluid type conditions the gravity will alter the internal structure and the gravity concentration will realign to the spherical form.

The centre material will experience attraction from the surrounding mass so heavier materials will not remain in the centre. ....Heavier materials will not remain in the centre. That is the important aspect.

As the heavier materials gravitate outwards .....a gravitational concentration sphere will become more defined and increase in strength. Then the cavity will form. In a planet the size of earth that cavity could increase to 3000 km diameter.     


Earth’s odd satellite

The ‘gravitational concentration sphere’ hypotheses could possibly be an explanation for the axis aligning orientation of the moon around earth. 'Tidal lock'

Theory -   As the moon formed inside the accretion disc a large, solid object remained at the centre as material was added to the main body. The main body then grew to the point where the gravitational concentration became spherical and gravitational tension started acting on that central object. At some point, after the main body had some time to cool down, equilibrium was disturbed and the object moved off the centre position and embedded into the inner side. This caused lopsided mass distribution which eventually ended with permanent alignment to earth’s gravity

This theory is also applicable to Uranus with it’s rotational axis pointed toward the sun.   


Star anatomy

Most interesting would be the inner structures and conditions of stellar bodies.

The inner cavity of a star is a cauldron of astronomically () high pressures and temperatures.

The cavity is filled with a gaseous plasma at millions of degree C and pressures of millions of bar. The pressures are so enormous that it could account for significant expansion of the star’s diameter.  

The entire shell of the star is a liquid plasma and is structurally contained as an envelope by the tremendously powerful gravitational concentration sphere.

The star will ignite by the gravitational fusion of light gasses (standard model) but it is not certain that enough fusible gas will remain in that high pressure region to keep it burning for such a long duration. Fusion may not continue for more than a few million years at most. 

Although gravity remains the continuous driver of the star’s energy the largest part of the radiated energy comes from the ionised plasma fields in the inner cavity and in the outer atmosphere.  See the work of Prof. James McCanney on the electric plasma of stellar atmospheres.

For a star the size of the sun the shell will be over 300 000 km in width. That is past the distance from earth to moon!

Just as ejections are observed on the outside of the sun so there are ejections into the inner cavity. But that is not how the inner cavity is energised. The inner cavity is first energised during the nuclear ignition stage of the star and this energy state is then perpetually maintained by the continuous gravitational flux. There may be a settling period after the nuclear phase where the overall energy output reduced to the stable, long term state.

This is not to say there would not still be some fusion activity continuing but it would be limited and would not account for the radiated energy as hypothesised in the standard model.

The inner wall of the material shell is by no means clearly defined. Convection gouging and gravitational retraction creates a deep layer of highly excited froth.

The inner cavity of a star is a very interesting environment but it is not clear how the ionised gasses and materials will behave under such highly compacting pressures at such high temperatures.


Update October 2018

The density of the sun is determined to be only about 25 percent the density of earth. Intuitively that does not seem realistic. With the sun at the centre of the original aggregation disc it is more reasonable to expect the sun to be at least as dense as earth if not more so.

The extreme temperatures raging inside the sun would  of course be expected to have an effect on the mean density but then the enormous gravity would offset the effects of the thermal expansion....


The enormous cavity inside the sun can very easily account for this density anomaly. 



More exploration of this subject is required but seismic patterns of inner earth can certainly be reinterpreted to show an inner cavity with a higher density region that would then be the gravitational concentration sphere
