    The article focuses on development of theories made by physicists regarding the formation of galaxies and stars they contain. In theory, it is stated that inflation can produce matter energy but by taking it from some other source known as spacetime. It is indicated that spacetime is dynamical,...

    Einstein equation of gravity has on one side the momentum energy density tensor and on the other, Einstein tensor which is derived from Ricci curvature tensor. A better theory of gravity will have both sides geometric. One way to achieve this goal is to develop a new measure of time that will be...

    We have obtained a generalization of the hydrodynamic theory of vacuum in the context of general relativity. While retaining the Lagrangian character of general relativity, the new theory provides a natural alternative to the view that the singularity is inevitable in general relativity and the...
