Is gravitys pull bigger?

November 10, 2008

Wait, hang on here… The gravitational pull of galaxies means they must be more massive than the observable mass we see, so dark matter was invented. But… there is also a flyby anomaly meaning that the increase of speed in flybys are higher than what it should be. And there is the pioneer anomaly, where satellites moving out of the solar system seems to slow down faster than they should.

I’m just thinking: Doesn’t all this just mean that gravity is slightly stronger that previously thought? Maybe it’s time to just sit down and look at all the gravitational data we have with open eyes, and see what constants and formulas that come out the other end? Because we seem to have gotten something just mildly wrong here. :)
