Eliminate the need to search for Dark Matter.
Can someone explain why Newton’s law of gravity (based ONLY on observations in our solar system) is called Newton’s Law of Universal Gravity? When the “Universal Law” is used for observations of galaxies outside our solar system, it fails to predict or explain the many observations without requiring the invention of massive amounts of Dark Matter. The interesting MOND theory of M. Milgrom attempts to modify Newton’s law but is not completely satisfactorily simple or complete because of the need for multiple assumptions. However, after years of studying the question, I find that my basic theory of Extended Universal Gravity is valid in the universe and also in our solar system – no Dark Matter needed to explain observations. Answers or comments please.
