Gravity; Sun--Gravity


"Non-implications" in Newton's Law of Gravitation are discussed to emphasize different approaches in two books treating the subject: Dewey Larson's Beyond Newton, and Gravitation, by Misner, Thorne and Wheeler. The author notes that the latter book ignores the possibility that gravitation may not be an interaction; while Larson accepts Newton's Law of Gravitation as a mathematically valid statement of Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion, thus being applicable to the sun and planets even if they are not actually interacting.
