INTRODUCTION

Great astronomical conundrums include "Black Holes", an "Expanding Universe", the nature of a "Gravitational Field", and the "Big Bang". Modern evidence points to a series of high density regions in outer space where gravity is so strong that nothing can escape including light. These regions are inferred where material from an adjacent star, spirals into oblivion at the Black Hole. A primordial Big Bang initiation is postulated to explain stellar observations showing galaxies moving rapidly away from each other in an Expanding Universe.
 

PHYSICAL LAWS

Two famous laws of physics affect these conundrums. The first is Newton's law of gravitation where Fg = Gm1m2 ÷ r2, and the second is Albert Einstein's expression E = mc2.

  CONCLUSIONS


 COROLLARY

1) A corollary to these thoughts is that our Universe is neither expanding nor contracting, but has reached a steady state. Matter is cycling through the system as shown, and we do not know how many times it has returned. We only know that one cycle takes about 15b years, and a "Big Bang" is not required to start a cycle.

2) The mass of objects within the gravitational field should be increasing with time. Refer Note 2 for more on this point.
