Concave Hollow Earth Hypothesis

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

explain gravity in a convex hollow earth
Did you mean concave?

Maybe you are right, it doesn't really matter

... considering books have been/are being written in attempts to explain gravity in a convex Earth universe.

I would think most Concave Earth theorists probably embrace a version of curvature of spacetime, but who knows.

(pretty sure the mathematician Mostafa Abdelkader who perfected the theory did)

Me, I've always been partial to ideas along the lines of Nir's fracticles, which I think would work for both concave/convex.

Obviously no one on Earth could "explain gravity" in either system to the satisfaction of all

... but if one could, it would take a rather massive book don't you think? :D
