# Demonstration that Newtonian gravity moves at the speed of light and not instantaneously (infinite speed) as thought!

@article{Haug2021DemonstrationTN, title={Demonstration that Newtonian gravity moves at the speed of light and not instantaneously (infinite speed) as thought!}, author={Espen Gaarder Haug}, journal={Journal of Physics Communications}, year={2021}, volume={5} }

In this paper, we will demonstrate, based on reasoning as well as mathematical evidence and experimental observations, why Newtonian gravity moves at the speed of light and is not, as previously thought, instantaneous. The misunderstanding that Newtonian gravity is instantaneous has constrained our progress in understanding gravity to its full extent. We will show that all of Newton’s gravitational phenomena contain the Planck length and the speed of gravity; this speed of gravity is identical…

This short paper points out that the so-called diameter of the inflated universe, approximately ⇥ ⇡ 8.8 ⇥ 10 m, basically is very close to or perhaps even identical to what we can call the Hubble…

Quantum Cosmology: Cosmology linked to the Planck Scale

Using a Bayesian approach that combines the first three gravitational wave detections reported by the LIGO Scientific and Virgo Collaborations, this work constrain the gravitational waves propagation speed c_{gw} to the 90% credible interval 0.55c<c_{ gw}<1.42c, where c is the speed of light in vacuum.
