Mass Vortex Theory proposes a new explanation for how a star-system forms. The initial givens for this new theory include:

When the singularity becomes present in the nebula, the system goes from no angular momentum to a vortex. Mass Vortex Theory calls this resulting vortex of gases the Parent Vortex.

The big clumps of metal atoms also flow in the Parent Vortex as shown above in an early-stage star system as glowing regions [Credit: ALMA Telescope in Chile]. The metal is mostly iron, so it contains lots of small magnetic domains that line up in cold space to form a big magnet. Each clump of iron in the image above is being accelerated towards the center. And accelerated magnetic domains produce radiation. [1]

Each clump of metal atoms, called an iron-heart, clothes itself with atoms packed in around it, bound gravitationally; this forms a protoplanet. The protoplanet flows with the gas of the vortex disk until its inertia is too great to continue. At this point when the protoplanet has too much inertia to remain in the flow, it exits into an orbit. This is called cyclone separation. Cyclone separation happens as part of everyday life whenever someone uses a Dyson™ vacuum cleaner.

When a protoplanet exits the vortex and falls into an orbit around the center, it goes from no spin (irrotational flow) to spin. This spin causes a magnetic flux that induces an electric field. This induced electric field starts a chain reaction of events that include the following results:

  • Molecules
  • Core, mantle, crust layers
  • Discontinuity layers
  • Oceans and lakes
  • Atmosphere
  • Ice layer

One of the predictions from Mass Vortex Theory is that Jupiter is not a sphere of gas. Rather, Jupiter is actually a rocky planet with an atmosphere around it, contained by an ice layer that is covered with gaseous debris.

Mass Vortex Theory is set forth in the book: “Mass Vortex Theory; Development of a Solar System from Atoms to Star.” It is a book that is geared to a general science-literate audience. Here is a pdf file the Introduction to Mass Vortex Theory in the book which includes an overview of current thinking put forward in science textbooks.

See whether Mass Vortex Theory solves any of your favorite mysteries such as:

  • How is it that Mars once had a lot of water on the surface, and what caused it to disappear?
  • Why is Pluto, a spherical body that looks like a planet, out in the Kuiper Belt?
  • Why are so many moons spherical – like a planet – with ice and oceans in addition to a rocky body?
  • Why do planets tilt?
  • Why does the Sun have differential rotation?

The development proceeds using known physics. Following are some physics concepts used in Mass Vortex Theory. Knowledge regarding these topics will help with understanding Mass Vortex Theory.


Singularity — A singularity, in the context of black holes and Mass Vortex Theory, is a point in space that is completely filled with pure mass.

Vortex Flow — “A region in a fluid in which the flow rotates around an axis.”¹ A “fluid” is a term referring to both liquids and gases, anything that behaves according to fluid dynamics. There are two main types of vortex flow: i) rigid body rotation where the speed of particles in the fluid increase with radial distance from the axis; and ii) irrotational flow where the speed of particles in the fluid is inversely proportional to the radial distance from the vortex axis.
