Abstract

Journal Article,It is generally assumed that Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity (GTR) is silent on the issue of planetary recession such as has been measured recently by Standish (2005); Krasinsky and Brumberg (2004) and as-well by Williams and Boggs (2009); Williams et al. (2004). In this short note, we demonstrate that the GTR is not silent on this matter, it does make a clear predictions albeit, predictions that is contrary with experience and for this task, we use the same solution that was and has been used triumphantly by Einstein to explain the perihelion precession of the planet Mer- cury. From a pure stand-point of binary logic, we expect this so- lution to stand-up to all its predictions for both the precession of perihelion precession and as-well the expansion of orbits. At any rate imaginable, this apparent contradiction presents an interesting state of affairs for the GTR.
