This paper expands upon the findings of Dr. Albert C. Crehore, an 1892 graduate of Yale University, and a pioneer nuclear physicist of this century, that gravitation is the result of the rotation of the positive charge of the atom. This theory is based upon the electrodynamics of Dr. M.N. Saha, using the Minkowski four-dimensional interpretation of the Special Theory of Relativity with a restriction noted. A slight correction places the result squarely on the Rydberg constant, a feat which has not been duplicated since the Bohr atom of 1913. It will also bring up to date his all nuclear atom with no orbiting electrons, which he used in his Theory of the Spectra for this atom in its excited state. Another of his findings was that when atoms come together to form a molecule, they are held at a minimum distance by a very powerful electromagnetic force which rules out gravitational collapse as the basis for 'Black Holes', or a 'Big Bang' theory as to the origin of the Universe. Dr. Crehore speculated that the restoration of an Ether might bring about a new, unified foundation of physics and cosmology. This idea is developed as an answer to the partial theoretical systems of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics which hold sway today. A new foundation of the Universe is presented, which places a different interpretation on the Hubble Constant.
