To understand the mystery of final unification, in our earlier publications, we proposed two bold concepts:1) There exist three atomic gravitational constants associated with electroweak, strong and electromagnetic interactions. 2) There exists a strong elementary charge in such a way that its squared ratio with normal elementary charge is close to reciprocal of the strong coupling constant. In this review article we propose that, &nbsp;can be considered as a compound physical constant associated with electroweak gravity. With these new ideas, an attempt is made to understand and fit nuclear stability, binding energy and quark masses. We wish to emphasize that, nuclear binding energy can be fitted with four simple terms having one unique energy coefficient, &nbsp;With reference to proton-electron mass ratio, Newtonian gravitational constant can be estimated in a verifiable approach. Recently observed 3.5 keV photon seems to be an outcome of annihilation of a new charged small or tiny lepton of rest energy 1.75 keV. By questioning and understanding the integral nature of electron’s angular momentum, existence of the three atomic gravitational constants can be understood. By studying the stellar magnetic dipole moments with reference to weak and strong interactions, there is a possibility of confirming the existence of atomic gravitational constants.</p> U. V. S.

The meteor trail echoes lasting more than 23 seconds in height range between 95 and 108 km as measured using the interferometry technique implemented at the Chung-Li 52 MHz radar, Chung-Li, Taiwan. The 3-meter electron density irregularities embedded in the meteor trail, which were responsible for the radar returns, were found without field-aligned property. Hodograph analysis reveals that the existence of an upward propagating inertia-gravity wave is associated with the vertical wavelength of 11.3 km. The wave-induced wind velocity and temperature perturbations combined with the background temperature profile of mass spectrometer and incoherent scatter (MSIS) model was used to estimate the height variation of the Richardson number (R<sub>i</sub>). It is found that the feature R<sub>i</sub> &lt; 0.25 occurred in height range from 98 to 99 km, which implies that the wave is very likely broken in this height region through convective instability that was associated with negative temperature gradient induced by the gravity wave. The characteristics of echo power and spectral width associated with the wave-breaking turbulences are also discussed.</p> M. Satyavani, P. S. Brahmanandam, P. S. V. Subba Rao, C. T. Cheng, Y. H.

In this context, starting from lepton rest masses to stellar masses, we have developed many interesting and workable relations. In this paper the electroweak field seems to be operated by a primordial massive fermion of rest energy 585 GeV. It can be considered as the zygote of all elementary particles and galactic dark matter. Proceeding further, with a characteristic fermion-boson mass ratio of 2.27, quarks can be classified into quark fermions and quark bosons. Considering strong charge conservation and electromagnetic charge conservation, fractional charge quark fermions and quark bosons can be understood. Quark fermions that generate observable massive baryons can be called as Fluons. Quark bosons that generate observable mesons can be called as Bluons. By considering a new hadronic fermion of rest energy 103.4 GeV, rest masses of fluons and bluons can be estimated and there by baryon masses and meson masses can be estimated. We emphasize that, 1) Strong interaction is one best platform for observing and confirming super symmetry (SUSY), 2) All observed baryons and mesons are SUSY particles only and 3) SUSY particles exist at all energy scales and are within the reach of current accelerators.</p> U.
