The author postulates that ordinary atomic nuclei absorb space by bursting quantum foam bubbles upon contact with their surfaces, and that dark matter (DM) expels space. The nucleus absorption postulate leads to the prediction that all atomic nuclei have similar radii = 6 ?2 femtometers, and the nuclear densities of the elements in each row of the periodic table are related by an empirical quadratic formula that is unique to that row.
The author suggests that the ether pressure inside atomic nuclei may be much lower than the external ether pressure. If true, then the excess of external over internal ether pressure may supply the force that opposes the Coulomb repulsion between protons and holds atomic nuclei together.
The author believes that space fountains have dipole magnetic fields, entrained ether globes, and radial space flow. Space drains do not necessarily have any of those things. He believes that Population I stars (including the Sun), the planets Mercury, Earth, Jupiter and active comets are space fountains, and Population II stars, planets Venus and Mars, the Moon, and dormant comets are space drains.
