Makes sense though. Two lenses one outer fixed with a speck of dust on it and the inner one that collects the data. The inner one moves independent of the outer one.
This is just more proof that the electric universe theory is 100% correct.
Gravity results from mass. Period. It is calculated, the math is solid, and it is HOW we can send spacecraft to rendezvous with other planets, and the Moon. It isn't "electricity" holding everything together on the macro scale.
If a space station were out in the middle of space instead of orbiting Earth, then I see no reason why small objects couldn't orbit the space station.

On October 12 SDO successfully performed a 7-hour roll maneuver to help calibrate the HMI instrument calibration. The spacecraft roll started at same time as HGA handover operation. This complicated the operational sequences but did not stop either maneuver. While it is easy to point a space-based instrument at the center of the Sun it is more difficult to know the precise location of the Sun's rotation axis. Data from the roll maneuvers help the scientists to understand how their instrument response varies at different angles of the rotation axis. This is then used to more accurately remove the rotation effects from the data.
