present work discusses, in a comprehensible language and simple mathematics,
the origin of the gravitational physics in the light of new recent experimental
observations, achieved with the help of the tightly synchronized clocks of the
GPS. These observations reveal that real space, ruling the inertial motion of
matter and the propagation of light, is moving round the earth and round the
sun according to a Keplerian velocity field, consistent with the local main
astronomical motions. This Keplerian velocity field of real space is the
quintessence of the gravitational fields and appropriately induces the observed
gravitational dynamics. Such real space needs not to be invented. It is well at
hand in the Quantum Field Theory (QFT), underlying the Standard Elementary
Particle Model (SEPM). The QFT entails the idea that space is filled up with
the Higgs condensate (HC), a very powerful quantum space (QS). The HC is a
Bose-Einstein (BE) condensate of the zero spin Higgs bosons. By coupling to the
HC, the elementary particles get inertial mass by the Higgs mechanism, that is,
get mechanical properties. This will say that the HC rules the inertial motion
of matter and the propagation of light and hence is the locally ultimate
reference for rest and for motion of matter and light. The present work
acknowledges that, likewise the Meissner effect in superconductors develops
macroscopic screening currents, forcing magnetic fields out from
superconductors, the Higgs mechanism too entails a macroscopic manifestation in
the form of the Keplerian velocity field of the QS round each matter body
throughout the universe, consistent with the local main astronomical motions.
This Keplerian velocity field screens and thrusts the matter fields out from
the HC by squeezing them into a minimum of volume. It is shown that this
Keplerian velocity field of the QS appropriately induces the observed
gravitational dynamics on earth, in the solar system as well as the galactic
gravitational dynamics without the need of dark matter. It also provides an
antigravitation mechanism accelerating the expansion of the universe. It
finally is shown that this spacedynamics correctly and appropriately gives
origin, in terms of simple and genuine physical effects, to all the other
observed effects, caused by the gravitational fields on the propagation of
light and on the rate of the clocks.
