"At any given time, there should be at least one natural Earth satellite of one-meter diameter orbiting the Earth," Granvik, Jeremie Vaubaillon and Robert Jedicke wrote in "The Population of Natural Earth Satellites," a paper published in online physics journal ArXiv.org.
It seems that the Earth must have some strange balance requirement that such tiny satellites fulfill. To me, this suggests an electrical explanation for gravity.
From what I know of science current theory on gravity, this situation with these tiny satellites does not fit the model. How would warping of time and space cause a continuous stream of small satellites to get caught in Earths gravity field for a few revolutions, and then slip back out. An occasional satellite slipping in and out the the hole that is supposedly created by time and space would be reasonable, but a constant stream of these satellites point to an electrical imbalance. IMO
the earth's gravity only goes out so far before the "gravity well" where you can put an object into orbit and it stays there, forever basically.
The angle of entry of an object, as well as it's mass, will determine what happens. If the angle is shallow enough, it might come into an orbit pattern following the earths rotation until it spins back out.
That these small satellites slip in and out of Earth's orbit on essentially a continuous basis, looks like an electrical imbalance, not asteroids rolling around on the rim of Earths gravity well.
