An elastic ether model of gravitational effects is proposed, and the more significant differences between the new theory and the General Theory are explored. When compared with Einstein?s curved-space model, the majority of the equations are little changed, but there are a number of real differences. The complexity of interpretation for the General Theory contrasts with the simplicity of the new gravitational model. Some of the predicted effects differ too. In a series of logical steps a new gravitational force equation is developed. It is shown that many of the cosmological implications of the General Theory are critically dependent upon the sign of the second-order term of the Taylor series expansion of the gravitational scale factor. The existing observational evidence supports the opposite sign of the second-order term, and hence the new gravitational force equation.
