It is shown here that a model for inertial mass, called quantised inertia, or MiHsC (Modified inertia by a Hubble-scale Casimir effect) predicts the rotational acceleration of the 153 good quality galaxies in the SPARC dataset (2016 AJ 152 157), with a large range of scales and mass, from just their visible baryonic matter, the speed of light and the co-moving diameter of the observable universe. No dark matter is needed. The performance of quantised inertia is comparable to that of MoND, yet… 
Superluminal Travel from Quantised Inertia
Special relativity predicts that the inertial mass of an object is infinite at the speed of light (c) causing zero acceleration and producing a cosmic speed limit. Here, a new model for inertia is
Testing Newton/GR, MoND and quantised inertia on wide binaries
Wide binary stars are within the low-acceleration regime in which galactic rotation curves deviate from Newtonian or general relativistic predictions. It has recently been observed that their
Theoretical implications of the galactic radial acceleration relation of McGaugh, Lelli, and Schombert
Velocities in stable circular orbits about galaxies, a measure of centripetal gravitation, exceed the expected Kepler/Newton velocity as orbital radius increases. Standard LCDM attributes this
Deriving quantised inertia using horizon-widths in the uncertainty principle
In this paper we show that a model for inertial mass (quantised inertia) can be derived exactly and simply by assuming that the property of inertia is caused by gradients in the energy in the Unruh
Modified Newtonian Gravity, Wide Binaries and the Tully-Fisher Relation
A recent study of a sample of wide binary star systems from the Hipparcos and Gaia catalogues has found clear evidence of a gravitational anomaly of the same kind as that appearing in galaxies and
Can the Standard Model Predict a Minimum Acceleration That Gets Rid of Dark Matter?
The standard model is considered to be very bad at predicting galaxy rotation, and this is why the hypothesis of dark matter was introduced in physics in the 20th century. However, in this paper we
Could the Diameter of The So-Called Inflated Universe Actually be the Hubble Circumference?
This short paper points out that the so-called diameter of the inflated universe, approximately ⇥ ⇡ 8.8 ⇥ 10 m, basically is very close to or perhaps even identical to what we can call the Hubble
Planck Mass Measured Totally Independent of Big G Utilizing McCulloch-HeisenbergNewtonian Equivalent Gravity
In 2014, McCulloch showed, in a new and interesting way, how to derive a gravity theory from Heisenberg's uncertainty principle that is equivalent to Newtonian gravity. McCulloch utilizes the Planck
Propellant-less Propulsion from Quantized Inertia
A new model for inertial mass, quantized inertia, that predicts galaxy rotation without dark matter, also predicts that a highly accelerated system surrounded by an asymmetric conductor will feel
Gravity without Newton's Gravitational Constant and No Knowledge of Mass Size
In this paper, we show that the Schwarzschild radius can be extracted easily from any gravitationally-linked phenomena without having knowledge of Newton's gravitational constant or the mass size of


Testing quantised inertia on galactic scales
Galaxies and galaxy clusters have rotational velocities (v) apparently too fast to allow them to be gravitationally bound by their visible matter (M). This has been attributed to the presence of
Low-acceleration dwarf galaxies as tests of quantised inertia
Dwarf satellite galaxies of the Milky Way appear to be gravitationally bound, but their stars’ orbital motion seems too fast to allow this given their visible mass. This is akin to the larger-scale
Minimum accelerations from quantised inertia
It has recently been observed that there are no disc galaxies with masses less than 109M⊙ and this cutoff has not been explained. It is shown here that this minimum mass can be predicted using a
One Law To Rule Them All: The Radial Acceleration Relation of Galaxies
We study the link between baryons and dark matter in 240 galaxies with spatially resolved kinematic data. Our sample spans 9 dex in stellar mass and includes all morphological types. We consider (i)
Inertia from an asymmetric Casimir effect
The property of inertia has never been fully explained. A model for inertia (MiHsC or quantised inertia) has been suggested that assumes that 1) inertia is due to Unruh radiation and 2) this
Testing quantised inertia on the emdrive
It has been shown that truncated cone-shaped cavities with microwaves resonating within them move slightly towards their narrow ends (the emdrive). Standard physics has no explanation for this and an
Strongly baryon-dominated disk galaxies at the peak of galaxy formation ten billion years ago
Rotation curves (showing rotation velocity as a function of disk radius) for the outer disks of six massive star-forming galaxies are reported, and find that the rotation velocities are not constant, but decrease with radius, a trend that appears to increase with redshift.
Black hole explosions?
QUANTUM gravitational effects are usually ignored in calculations of the formation and evolution of black holes. The justification for this is that the radius of curvature of space-time outside the
Modelling the Pioneer anomaly as modified inertia
This paper proposes an explanation for the Pioneer anomaly: an unexplained Sunward acceleration of 8.74 ± 1.33 × 10 −10 ms −2 seen in the behaviour of the Pioneer probes. Two hypotheses are made. (1)
Inertial mass from Unruh temperatures
It has been proposed that inertia can be explained as follows: when objects accelerate in one direction, a Rindler horizon forms in the other direction suppressing Unruh radiation on that side and
