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 galaxy rotation problem. In this paper, a modification of inertia called quantised inertia or MiHsC (Modified inertia due to a Hubble-scale Casimir effect) which correctly predicts larger galaxy rotations without dark matter is tested on eleven dwarf satellite galaxies of the Milky Way, for which… 
Galaxy rotations from quantised inertia and visible matter only
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
Approaching the Dark Sector through a bounding curvature criterion
Understanding the observations of dynamical tracers and the trajectories of lensed photons at galactic scales within the context of General Relativity (GR), requires the introduction of a
On Fine Structured Spacetime as a New Hypothesis for Dark Energy and Dark Matter
We propose a new hypothesis that could potentially have far-reaching consequences for the amount of Dark Energy and Dark Matter required in ΛCDM model. The new hypothesis proposes the development and
The CMB Energy Equivalence Principle : A Correlation to Planck and Cosmic Horizon Energy
According to the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) temperature and Wien's displacement law, the CMB's energy value is equivalent to that of the measured and determined neutrino energy. The resulting
An Introduction to the Theory of Everything Using Energy Gradients and Information Horizons
The quest to unify the four fundamental forces has been sought after for decades but has remained elusive to all physicists. The first clues to unification were given when information horizons were
1 McCulloch ’ s Derivation of Quantized Inertia from Heisenberg ’ s Uncertainty Principle
In his recent work, physicist Mike McCulloch has derived what he has coined “Quantized Inertia” from Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle. He has published a series of papers indicating that Quantized
Testing quantised inertia on emdrives with dielectrics
Truncated-cone–shaped cavities with microwaves resonating within them (emdrives) move slightly towards their narrow ends, in contradiction to standard physics. This effect has been predicted by a
Electrostatic Accelerated Electrons Within Information Horizons Exert Bidirectional Propellant-Less Thrust
During internal discharge (electrical breakdown or field emission transmission), thin symmetric capacitors accelerate slightly towards the anode, an anomaly that does not appear obvious using
Heisenberg Probabilistic Quantum Gravity that Holds at the Subatomic and the Macroscopic Scale
Here we will present a probabilistic quantum gravity theory derived from Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle. Surprisingly, this theory is fully deterministic when operating with masses that are

We perform an analysis of the derivation of quantized inertia (QI) theory, formerly known with the acronym MiHsC, as presented by McCulloch. Two major flaws were found in the original derivation.


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
Local Group dwarf spheroidal satellite galaxies are the faintest extragalactic stellar systems known. We examine recent data for these objects in the plane of the Baryonic Tully-Fisher Relation
Modified Newtonian dynamics in the Milky Way
Both microlensing surveys and radio-frequency observations of gas flow imply that the inner Milky Way is completely dominated by baryons, contrary to the predictions of standard cold dark matter
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
Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND): Observational Phenomenology and Relativistic Extensions
It is shown that many of these puzzling observations are predicted by one single relation — Milgrom’s law — involving an acceleration constant a0 on the order of the square-root of the cosmological constant in natural units.
A Comprehensive Maximum Likelihood Analysis of the Structural Properties of Faint Milky Way Satellites
We derive the structural parameters of the recently discovered very low luminosity Milky Way satellites through a maximum likelihood algorithm applied to SDSS data. For each satellite, even when only
The Kinematics of the Ultra-faint Milky Way Satellites: Solving the Missing Satellite Problem
We present Keck DEIMOS spectroscopy of stars in eight of the newly discovered ultra-faint dwarf galaxies around the Milky Way. We measure the velocity dispersions of Canes Venatici I, Canes Venatici
Velocity dispersion measurements of recently discovered Milky Way satellites with MV –7 imply that they posses high mass-to-light ratios. The expected velocity dispersions due to their baryonic mass
Relativistic gravitation theory for the MOND paradigm
The modified newtonian dynamics (MOND) paradigm of Milgrom can boast of a number of successful predictions regarding galactic dynamics; these are made without the assumption that dark matter plays a
Triangulum II: Possibly a Very Dense Ultra-Faint Dwarf Galaxy
Laevens et al. recently discovered Triangulum II, a satellite of the Milky Way. Its Galactocentric distance is 36 kpc, and its luminosity is only 450 L_sun. Using Keck/DEIMOS, we measured the radial
