Gravity, Do you understand it?


**WARNING**
If you don't want to tax your brain don't read this post.

Ok lets see if I can get this universe thing out of my brain and onto pa... well pc screen.

Gravity... how does it work?
As far as i can tell every body in the universe has gravity, no matter how big or how small, but usually the larger and denser an object is the greater its gravity. If an object is large enough and dense enough it can hold satellites in orbit around it. (and yes I know some people that fit into the dense enough category to have their own satellites). These satellites can be: meteors, planets, moons, comets and who knows what else.
Now an object radiates a constant gravity in all directions around it. This gravity lessens in intensity the farther away you get from the object. If an object gets to far away from the source or has enough momentum it can be freed from the effects of that gravity.
Ok now that being said, we add in the dynamic of centrifugal force. the universe is rotating around its axis (the sun). That explains why most of the satellites (planet) are basically on the same plane of rotation around the axis.
Ok we have the effects of gravity, and we have the rotation of the solar system. Both playing with the satellites of our planets.
Now the problems I see with gravity. Different sized planets will have different amounts of gravity, and they will be pulled differently by the suns gravity. Hence you would have to assume that larger planets would have to be farther away from the sun, and smaller ones would be closer. Because if the larger ones were closer the gravity would pull harder on each other and end up pulling them into each other. the other dynamic that takes place it the rate of rotation around the axis, some planets would have to rotate faster to use the centrifugal force to help keep it away from the sun. Now explain Pluto? A small planet very far away from the axis. It would be receiving the least amount of gravity. Why doesn't it fly away? they will say because the suns gravity is strong enough to keep it way out there in orbit, but if that is so, them why doesn't mercury get sucked in? If its so strong that it can hold a tiny planet that far away, them it should be strong enough to suck in one so close.
next, How does the asteroid belt stay in place between Mars and Jupiter? With there size they aren't effected by the gravity of the sun like planets are. They (the astronomers) say that the asteroids are effected by the gravity of the planets, so why aren't they pulled out of orbit when Jupiter is on one side of the sun and mars is on the other? In that configuration the suns and Mars' gravity would be pulling the asteroids in the same direction. If you say "well the centrifugal force that they are rotating with holds them against that gravity" Ok fine that explains that scenario. But what about when Mars is on the other side of the sun and you have just the sun and jupiter pulling on them... that delicate balance of gravity and centrifugal force is thrown out of wack. you now have less gravity holding them in, the same centrifugal force pulling them out, and now Jupiter's gravity pulling them out. So one way or the other there is a gravity shift that my little brain cant comprehend.
I have a few more but for spaces sake and your reading sake I will only express this one....
Comets.... They fly in and out of our solar system in huge elliptical orbit (another subject to ponder). This orbit takes them way out into space between solar systems (the empty space between is another subject)(another is the black holes they have found at the center of every Galaxy). How can the suns gravity hold these objects that fly so far away from it in orbit? wouldn't the gravity of other solar systems pull on it? wouldn't they get a little extra momentum on one rotation and just keep going? wouldn't the planets be lined up right one time so that a planets gravity changes the orbit enough that it slides out of its orbit? Now we are talking over millions of years (if you believe evolutionists). You would have to think that over millions of years and millions of orbits things would line up right at least once to cause them to fly away, or get sucked in by the sun.

Now this is enough for now. If you have any answers other than they just work. or if you would like to hear the other questions I have just let me know and I will unfold my mind once again.

good post awesome questions my wee warped mind is still stuck on how there is no end to the universe. . are we all a ship in sumone's bottle?
