A gravity theory must explain why mass is attracted to mass. Three hundred years after Newton's formulation and one hundred years after Einstein's special relativity calculation, we have been no closer to understanding the cause for the force of gravity. A case is now made for the well known atomic mass defect as the mass sink that forces mass to be attracted to mass. Theory by Dr. T. Van Flandern and experiments by Dr. E. Podkletnov are discussed that serve to support the nature and superluminal velocity of the gravity force.
