    There is an alternative theory called MOND (modified Newtonian dynamics). I am not sure how viable it is, but it is the only theory that I've seen that fits your question.

    John Baez has a brief intro to MOND in his latest TWF, # 206 .

    Thanks SelfAdjoint! TWF is really cool! Ignorant question: could one find links to TWFs sprinkled throughout PF?
