Breakdown of the NewtonâEinstein Standard Gravity at Low Acceleration in Internal Dynamics of Wide Binary Stars - IOPscience

Great study. I was initially thrown off since the article talking about it was so bad, but the paper itself is very reasonable.

The theory called MOND is that gravity does not work like Newton and Einstein predicted. It's been around for decades as an alternative way to explain galaxy rotation.

This paper looks at 26 thousand wide binary stars near Earth and finds that their motions likely match MOND predictions. His statistical modelling proves it with an incredibly high degree of certainty, but it's always possible that there's a systemic error with his approach. The dataset he used is by far the best available but it's still lacking. I've personally used it here and there and star motions can change significantly with each update. Would be interesting to see if his analysis still holds up using new data in 2026.
