Oleg E. Tsiganok
Alfred Nobel University
Tsiganok gravitation law was discovered. Tsiganok gravitation theory was worked out. The definitions of body weight and body mass and density (specific gravity) were given. The definitions of gravitational constant were found and gravity acceleration constant of a body were found and defined. The weight, the mass, the gravity acceleration, the average density (specific gravity) and other parameters of the Earth, the Sun, and Moon etc. were defined. Body parameters in various points of the Universe were found. The Earth, the Sun, the Moon and other bodies were weighed in the state of weightlessness without scales.
Petrozavodsk State University
As is known, the founder of the theory of world gravitation I. Newton , pointed the source of attraction forces to material bodies. In 1915, 1916 the year of A. Einstein proposed a general theory of relativity . In this theory, gravitational effects are caused not by force interaction of bodies and fields, but by deformation of space-time itself. Deformation is associated with the presence of mass-energy. These theories have one general condition - the forces of attraction are created by masses of bodies. On the basis of this condition, the conclusion follows: the forces of gravity act centrally symmetrically. That is, they decrease when moving away from the body in the same way, in all directions. In the authorâ€™s theory of vortex gravitation , it is asserted that the forces of attraction act flat-symmetrically with respect to any cosmic object. The next chapter describes the basic principle of the theory of vortex gravity.
