Is Gravity an Attractive Force?

  1. Dec 18, 2004 #1
    Is Gravity a Force of Attraction?

    We are familiar with electromagnetic attraction and we understand how and why it works.

    We do not understand Gravity? To my understanding and we are trying to link it and its properties with that of electromagnetic forces.

    Now we are trying to detect Gravitational Waves.

    Is it possible that Gravity is not an attraction but merely an angular momentum force.

    Could it be that by the fact that mass follows the curvature of space that when space is bent mass that is in motion will experience an angular momentum force due to the bending of space?

    Could this explain Gravity and how it has the same attraction for all mass?
