[gr-qc/0512088] A theory of gravity based on special relativity
 
Authors:Hai-Long Zhao
Abstract:We obtain the effects of time dilation and length contraction starting with the law of universal gravitation and based on the influence of gravitational field on the light. Covariant theory of gravity is obtained by combining law of universal gravitation with special relativity. We calculate the standard tests of general relativity, which basically agree with general relativity. However, our theory differs from general relativity in the predictions for GP-B test, with the geodetic effect is zero and frame-dragging effect only 1/4 of the result in general relativity. The anomalous precession of DI Herculis and origin of quasars are also explained in the paper.

This is an alternative gravitational theory that has incorporated the conservation of gravitational energy (Zhao's "mass variance") in SR, Self Creation Cosmology has done so in GR (see gr-qc/0302026 "Resolving the Degeneracy: Experimental tests of the New Self Creation Cosmology and a heterodox prediction for Gravity Probe B").

Both theories may be falsified - along with GR - in the geodetic and frame-dragging measurements of the Gravity Probe B experiment, which at present is in the data analysis stage.
We wait and see!

Now that GP-B's preliminary results are in, do we know enough for a verdict? Or must we wait another 8 months or so for the frame-dragging result?

Both SCC and Zhao's "mass variance" theory are falsified by the GP-B geodetic result.

We wait for the frame-dragging result, to see if that falsifies GR!
