The short answer to why Dimorphos now has a 10,000 km long tail, some two weeks after NASA intentionally slammed a space probe into it

Here’s an article by National Geographic that sheds more light on the DART probe and its impact on Dimorphos orbit around Didymos.

The NASA DART probe that hit the asteroid Dimorphos on September 27 has shortened Dimorphos’ orbit around its

The NASA DART probe that I wrote about a year ago has reached its destination. It has crashed into an asteroid in order to alter its orbit

Newton assumes in his work that gravity is a monopole acting with equal force in all directions, regardless of intervening matter. These assumptions are central to his shell theorem which

Wikipedia claims that satellite orbits verify Einstein’s formulas for time dilation because the exact time and position of satellites are continuously adjusted. Their article makes it

According to general relativity, clocks slow down in the presence of massive bodies. This is known as time dilation due to gravity. The effect of gravity is in other

Mercury makes its rounds around the sun faster than predicted by Newton. A consequence of this is that Mercury’s orbital precession

The theory of physics presented on this website came about as a result of some intriguing problems related to gravity. The enormous size of many dinosaurs

I first came across David Esker‘s buoyant atmosphere theory back in 2017, when I was developing my own theory with an aim
