Einstein's special relativity is a theory rich of paradoxes, one of which is the Relativistic Invariant Mass Paradox, which was recently discovered in [1], and which we describe in Section 5 of this article.
As we will see in Section 5, the Relativistic Invariant Mass Paradox asserts that the resultant relativistic invariant mass [m.
Rather, what is needed is to cultivate the Relativistic Invariant Mass Paradox, which has recently been discovered in [1], and which is described in Section 5 below.
Accordingly, the task we face in this article is to show that the Relativistic Invariant Mass Paradox of Einstein's special relativity dictates the formation of dark matter and dark energy in the Universe and that, as a result, the origin of the Pioneer anomaly stems from the motions of the constituents of the Solar system relative to each other.
