In paper 111 most orbits were described with a new and simple orbital theorem, with the exception of binary pulsars (paper 108) and the orbits of galaxies. In paper 123 we are now working on a more general orbital theory using the concept of spinning spacetime. Papers 108 and 111 used a geodesic method, from which can be derived the conserved energy and momentum. In paper 123 the spinning spacetime is thought of as generating work on a star. This gives a potential energy, which is the capacity for doing work. The potential energy produces a force due to spacetime which projects the stars outwards. All planar orbits are described by constant angular momentum, including the most well known orbit – Newtonian / Keplerian. The concept of force between two particles is replaced by angular momentum of spacetime. Instead of an attractive force inwards there is an attractive (negative valued) force outwards. This is attractive because a star is attracted outwards by spinning spacetime. Similarly a particle in orbit around the sun is attracted outwards by the spinning spacetime. Once the spacetime stops spinning the lateral velocity is lost and the particle gives up its potential energy acquired from spinning spacetime and falls into the sun along the radial axis. A completely self consistent approach needs a combination of the concepts in papers 108, 111 and 123 to date. Paper 123 is not in final form yet. In other words a geodesic approach is needed to describe all orbits in terms of a line element. The latter cannot now be a solution of the incorrect Einstein field equation. The geodesic approach gives the total energy and angular momentum as constants of motion.
