    I came up with a theory and I'm not sure if it works.

    Maybe there aren't two nuclear forces but just one. The strong one being strong enough to hold electrons in orbit.

    The collective strong nuclear power of the atoms at a large mass could create an offshoot of which is gravity. And then maybe also the collective atomic mass of the sun also has the effect of having planets orbit it.

    And perhaps the same for galaxies, and maybe galaxies orbit something very large like some sort of super galaxy.

    perhaps.

    The evidence is that the galaxies are not orbiting some sort of 'super-centre' - as this would show up in the galactic red-shift, and, the fact that galaxies are colliding, which they would not do if in nice stable orbits.

    As for what goes on in atoms, I think they are all tied together with string....

    If I remember correctly the strong force is actually repulsive, whereas gravity is attractive. Haven't done nuclear physics since A-levels though (and I didn't exactly understand it then) so don't quote me on this.

    And galaxies form big clusters that do not orbit in a nice disk.... actually electrons don't orbit in nice disks either (like planets do around stars, and stars around the centre of the galaxy). Damn, looks like your theory has just blown away in the wind.

    that's ok I'm not a scientist or anything, just wondered.

    I'll see if I can come up with another.

    Would you like to do a bit of reading first, even if it's just Bill Bryson's a complete history of nearly everything - or whatever it was called..

    I'd advise reading. A lot. There are libraries you can check, wikipedia, everything2, google, etc, all on the subject of gravity. Unfortunately many of them will require you learn a lot about electromagnetics and other types of physics.

    well we might need a new one as Newton's law of gravity is still unproven
