    If you could research negative gravity? See if it is plausible.

    If it is, you will have to draw a graph to show it. (Have to).

    TSR,I have been wondering of doing a research on something,creat my own law perhaps like how great scientists like Newton and Einstein did.So I was wondering what has not yet being discovered or explained well so as can make my move on it,any ideas on any work?
    Well, you could take an industrial process and find a way to improve it. For instance, I recently found (proved that it works too) a way to essentially "short circuit" combustion reactions, allowing you to bypass the endothermic processes involved in converting triplet oxygen to singlet oxygen and the whole endothermic formation of a hydroxyl radical by hydrogen abstraction. This allows you to reach higher temperatures during the reaction so more complete combustion occurs and you get waaay more energy out!

    You could do something like this. If you do, the best way to start is by taking a good look at the reaction mechanism and identifying the inefficient steps. Then you can find ways to avoid or replace these.

    OK, so. There are two possibilities:

    a) Gravity can only be positive. In this case the dark energy is not part of gravity. This means that there must be something else accelerating the expansion of the universe. It is this we need to find.
    b) Gravity can become negative at large separations. We need to find evidence for this, as well as equations, and find out how/why etc.

    I am assuming part a). In this case, it could merely be down to the Uncertainty Principle, meaning that it is not possible to measure anything exactly, due to random fluctuations. Or it could be something else. I am currently trying to think about what else could cause this.
    Sorry to rain on your parade but...

    Gravity has no repulsive behavior, it is an entirely attractive force so I'm confused as to how there would be a "negative gravity," as this implies that it causes repulsion between bits of matter.

    The celebrated Heisenberg uncertainty principle deals with the precision of measured values for a pair of complementary physical properties of a particle when you are trying to measure both simultaneously. The most common would be position and momentum, but there are others as well. I think you've gotten it a bit confused with the observer effect, which is easy to do.

    The difference is that the Heisenberg uncertainty principle describes a fundamental property of all quantum systems (and is in fact involved in the properties of all wave-like systems, classical or quantum), it arises because of the wave-particle nature of quantum systems, though it was originally introduced as a way of explaining the uncertainty in measurements of quantum systems. You'll most often see it written as: "the standard deviation in position multiplied by the standard deviation in momentum is greater than or equal to h-bar (plank's constant divided by 2 pi) divided by 2."

    The observer effect states that whenever a measurement is made, you have affected the system so the result you get will never be the actual value. As you can see, the two are similar but not the same.

    Again, sorry to put a downer on this. It's important that you get used to this criticism though, as the peer review process is fundamental in validating research/results.

    Yes, the observer effect is part of it.

    But I didn't explain my reasoning for picking that, which is based upon the uncertainty principle.

    I have come up with a third option:

    It could just be caused by gravitational waves with a really long wavelength, very small frequency, and large intensity. Caused by the big bang?

    I'd join too, except all I know about the uncertainty principle and other stuff comes from A Brief History of Time (in which I only understood about 20% of what happened, maybe less).

    Either way, I'm willing to lend a hand if I'm able to.

    If you want to research into the properties of dark energy, that'll be great
