Whether is it our solar system or a whole galaxy, there is usually a massive object (star or black hole) at the centre with gas and objects rotating around it. The gravitational effect of the ...
From my (somewhat limited) understanding of GR I know that there are two different kinds of solutions that produce a black hole, some that rotate and some that do not. What I can't figure out from my ...
Does the Earth spin because its surface has less mass than its core as lighter things travel faster in space?
Would heavy elements from space hitting the Earth slow down the earth's rotation as the difference between the masses of the core and surface would be less?

I understand the governing force causing the earth's cycle around the sun is gravity. It can be described by Keplar's law. But what causes the earth's spin? what is its governing law?
Why do cosmic bodies such as planets, stars, satellites revolve? What made them to revolve after the formation of universe?
Black holes have much gravitation to hold all stars and nebulas but why they are aligned in disc type shapes rather than spheres because gravitation is everywhere around black holes. Even on upper ...
