The stationary wobbling sun


Since nearly 1200 wobbling stars (527 extra-solar planetary systems detected in Oct. 2011 and already more than 1000 by the beginning of 2014, 1854 planets and 1163 planetary systems in dec.2014) can't be doubted by noone I can now reveal the full story behind it all: no scientific magazine would have published this theory (and all that I have sent it have refused to publish it(13)) because it strictly contradicts Einsteins theory of special relativity (but not Lorentzian/Poincaré relativity theory!).

But since astronomers have found more than 1000 wobbling stars (other references speak of 200 confirmed systems in end of 2013) since 1995 which prove that all my calculations (dating as early as 1969) were correct, every single of the nearly 1000 wobbling stars proves that Einsteins theory must be wrong. You can ask a physics theorist to confirm this statement or simply read on.

All of these wobbling stars prove that Newton was correct when he postulated that gravitational interactions between celestial bodies are instantanous, which means that the speed of gravity is infinite (or nearly infinite(10)). Conservation of angular momentum(1) demands that the speed of gravity is infinite in the interaction of celestial bodies. But Einsteins special relativity theory fundamentally knows no propagation speed beyond the speed of light in vacuum, which is far from instantanous or infinite(2). And wobbling stars don't fit in the picture of space-time curvature(3)(4)(12). As the latins used to say: "Quot erat demonstrandum".

Now since the wobbling of the stars sounds to everyone with a minimal physics understanding quite reasonable(11) and because astronomers didn't knew about these theoretical obstacles or didn't cared about, they started in the nineteeth of last century to search for wobbling stars when they heard of our wobbling sun. And these theoretical obstacles introduced by Einsteins theory of relativety were the reason why astronomers didn't search for wobbling stars during nearly 100 years after publication of Einsteins theory, not technical problems such as insufficient telescopes or spectroscopes. 2000 planet detections in the extremely short time of 20 years prove that it was not due to technical problems that before 1995 no planets orbiting other stars were known. And as the many links to amateur spectroscopy pages on doppler.htm prove, star spectroscopy or transiting planets detection can be accomplished today even with amateur equipment. More than twenty of these exoplanets were even detected with cheapest amateur mail order telescopes!(5)(6) or even telephoto lenses!!!!(7)(8) Not to mention the many amateur detections with slightly better eqipment. H.C.Vogel found already in 1890 wobbling stars by spectroscopic techniques!(9)   Afterwards  there was silence for 105 years.

  1. This is easy to understand even without a PhD in Physics: The forces that two bodies act upon each other must balance. If we introduce a delay in these forces they no more balance. Chaos is the result.
  2. There has been a Carlip paper (see also here) which tries to show that this is no contradiction to General Relativity. This paper seems today  a little oldfashion prove, even for 1999. Today (and 1999...) you would expect to find a computer simulation which demonstrates the correctness and applicabilty of the described equations. And if I  integrate Carlip's equations into simulations of our  solar system it still turns out to produce chaotic results. Maybe I misunderstood something? But it seems I'm not the only one with such problems: "This simulation (...) cannot (..) be used to simulate real systems." Why there is no official download of such a simulation? Which can show the sun's orbit as the here downloadable program does? See also here. But caution!  This author is considered as dubious
  3. as for instance in the simplest case the rubber sheet analogy shows (Since the concern of this site is not falsifying General relativity (GR) or Special Relativity (SR) only so much:  The problem of gravity  as a property of space-time geometry should get all too obvious to anybody with 3 and more bodies (if it isn't obvious enough with two bodies). That there is no provision for a barycentre in this theory can't be treated as a 'good enough approximation'. It's a severe contradiction to the laws of physics, which can't be dealed with as a minor slip or lapse. What has been true for years now as a counter argument to this thesis can't be wrong now, now that this thesis has been proven so many times. The small extra turns of the central body (see for instance the barycentric motions of stars below.) are absolutely not in any accordance with GR. Since this seems so hard to grasp for the smartest people in this world (the facts are known now for 20 years!) I will perhaps upload an extra page to this subject, although - as said - it is not my concern or intend to falsify GR or SR. )  And if you assume that General Relativity has been proven since long by many experiments, you can read in the above mentioned paper:"what do experiments say about the speed of gravity? The answer, unfortunately, is that so far they say fairly little. In the absence of direct measurements of propagation speed, observations must be filtered through theory, and different theoretical assumptions lead to different deductions. In particular,while the observed absence of aberration is consistent with instantaneous propagation (...), it is also consistent with the speed-of-light propagation predicted by general relativity." See also here. A good compilation to this subject you find here. But caution!  This author is considered as non- mainstream, dubious and reading this may damage your mind And yes, Van Flandern expressed some strange views (Mars face etc..), but this doesn't means, that all his work is dubious. Mainstream compilation here and here (local copy here). But it seems at least some have noticed that the "Search for New Physics beyond General Relativity" has to start. This is a local copy since the arXiv file seems to be downloaded that much that it takes an eternity to open. If the excitement has passed, try this link. The critiques of GR get rapidly more in the last time, here is another and another. Also what has been attributed to Einstein and even the results are more and more questioned: "(..)these problems are non-trivial and (..)turn out to be relevant to the “4/3 problem". An important lesson of these analyses is that E = mc2, while extremely useful, is not a “law of physics” in the sense that it ought not be applied indiscriminately to any extended system and, in particular, to the subsystems from which they are comprised." If you search by yourself in arXiv, you will find many more, although some express their unease with GR very faint...

  4. Besides the fact that science has for one century not realized that not the sun is the barycenter (or gravitational center) of our solar system (see below  typical presentations of 2011 from NASA  and different universities in picture B as you could see it for one century in physics books as illustration to the curvature of spacetime geometry). Historians should collect these pictures now because they are rapidly disapearing from university servers. See also MISSION update of November 12, 2009 of Gravity Probe B( GP-B) and this of 2007 or this of 2008. Short description. Search by yourself for "gravity probe b".
  5.  Price of such a telescope in the order of 50-100 dollars.
  6. Backyard Telescopes Find Extrasolar Planet: and ( This is the third transiting planet found using telescopes similar to those used by many amateur astronomers. “Hunting for planets with amateur equipment seemed crazy when we started the project,” says David Charbonneau, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, “but with this discovery the approach has become mainstream.”)
  7. " the Santa Ritas, an astronomer has discovered 13 exoplanets orbiting distant stars with the kind of telephoto lenses you would use to snap pictures of a high school football game." Compare this to the description of "Only in the mid 1990's were instruments developed that were sensitive enough to record the telltale signs that indicate the presence of a planet orbiting a star."  or this statement:  "During the past several years the astronomical techniques used for observations have become more and more sophisticated leading to precise indirect methods of detecting planetary bodies orbiting stars other than our Sun."  
  8. The Discovery of Exoplanet XO-1b (The camera used a commercially available Canon telephoto lens (200mm focal length, f/1.8) and a CCD camera.)
  9. "Vogel found that the spectra of certain stars shifted slightly over time, moving toward the red and then later toward the blue." But H.C.Vogel was not able to imterpret his results because he thought he had found double-star systems and the companion star could in some cases not get resolved.
  10. this is a mental bridge for all of us who were raised in space-time curvature thinking
  11. wikipedia articles to this subject contain such big errors that I don't dare to give you links here. Strange is that NASA for kids knows already the facts. So there is hope  that it is only a question of time when the scientific NASA pages will have the same content.
  12. Historically the not solved n-body problem prevented a knowledge of the orbit of the sun around the barycenter.
  13. I wasn't the only one who experienced this refusion to publish án article to this subject in a science magazine : "Some editors rejected our article without review, saying their readers would surely not be interested. Another editor told me, that they would not allow having anything about SIM published in their magazine! I even received a “peer review” consisting of a single sentence: “All articles about solar motion should be banned!" And even later Nobel laureates (Nobel price for chemics  2011) experienced such a refusion: the "Journal of Applied Physics" refused a publication of Daniel Shechtman to the later honored subject  with the argument: "it would not interest the physicists who read the journal".

And btw  all 'hard facts' experiments as in quantum physics speak also in favour of Newton.

B)Todays  theory: typical pictures of the dent that the sun (or the earth in the pictures below) produces in space-time geometry as you could see it on nearly every university server to Einsteins theory worldwide. As you can clearly see the sun is also in year 2011 still the gravitational center in these presentations of our solar system. There is simply no provision for a barycenter in this theory.


"Imagine pulling a sheet taut and placing a bowling ball in the center of it; you will notice that the ball produces a curve in the sheet. The curve is weak far away from the ball, and steeper near the ball. In fact, the sheet is a bit stretched in that area near the ball, as well. This situation describes the curvature of spacetime, and how it is affected by mass. Near a mass, spacetime curves more drastically and stretches. Near a very large mass, the 'dent' in spacetime is very deep, and the stretches are near the breaking point. This means that since spacetime stretches near a mass, not only is space stretched out, but so is time." (  )

Another typical presentation:, this time in connection with cruel black holes (source : "Just as a bowling ball placed on a trampoline stretches the fabric and causes it to dimple or sag, so planets and stars warp space-time - a phenomenon known as the 'geodetic effect'. Thus the planets orbiting the Sun are not being pulled by the Sun; they are following the curved space-time deformation caused by the Sun.")

Finally:  We should distinguish between emotions and physics: my sympathy for Einstein is in no way affected by this..
