ASE member and amateur astrophysicist, Gareth Mayze presents his new theory using the neutrino to solve a number of the biggest gravitational mysteries. He believes it answers some of the failings of dark matter and modified gravity theories. But what do you think?

He would love you to review his paper, question his theory and get back to him with your comments and questions about it.

Spacetime Distortion By The Neutrino is a paper I’ve written to describe a property of the neutrino which has been hiding in plain sight, and one which solves a number of the biggest gravitational mysteries.

NGC 5005 Neutrino virtual mass is derived directly from the stellar mass profile to accurately predict the rotation

The proposal is remarkably simple – the neutrino oscillation interacts with spacetime at a quantum level, distorting it to give the appearance of mass even though it is massless itself. This is the phenomena of virtual mass. This allows stars in galaxies which produce copious numbers of neutrinos to produce their own gravitational field, increasing and flattening the rotation curve. The amount by which they bend spacetime is proportional to their cross section which in turn is proportional to their energy. The method produces consistent results equal to the best features of dark matter and modified gravity theories but without their drawbacks.

In chapter five, Supernova1987A is studied using this method and it turns out that the final collapse was actually to a black hole. Remember, JWST looked for the missing neutron star recently and didn’t find it. The study looks at antineutrino energetics and gravitational binding energy to work out the greatest mystery of all – what is actually inside a black hole – and it’s not a singularity!

Chapter six is off the back of this and is a tour de force on black holes and brings to light a completely new area of physics, eventually showing that the Information Loss Paradox is false. It doesn’t exist!

Then I ask the question ‘why the neutrino?’. If you were to make the proposal of virtual mass a reality, then what type of particle would you want to do the job? It turns out that the neutrino fit the bill perfectly. Chapter eight shows that the method works for the giant and massive Coma Cluster just as well as it does for galaxies.

Chapter nine looks at cosmology and shows that inflation is unnecessary if antineutrinos from the big bang have the property derived in chapter five, virtual antimass. A model of cosmic expansion is produced using this, and the resulting Hubble constants at various ages of the universe fit the measured data. If right, it could be the first successful model of the so called dark energy and solve this great mystery.
