Two articles by the present author propose and expand upon a model of the physical cause of gravity: [D. W. Shaw, Phys. Essays 25, 66 (2012); ibid. 26, 523 (2013)]. The model is based upon the proposition that a subatomic substance called aether permeates space and cosmic bodies. The posited aether has two separate and distinct states—as a gas and as a liquid. Aether in its liquid state flows from space into cosmic bodies where it exerts ram pressure on atomic matter. The ram pressure of inflowing aether is posited as the physical cause of gravity. The outflow of aether from cosmic bodies back into space is an essential part of the gravity model. Outflow is needed to replenish the supply of inflowing aether. The present article focuses upon outflowing aether. It argues that: (1) heat derived from the ram pressure of inflowing aether causes it to vaporize or evaporate into gaseous aether; and (2) gaseous aether flows into space mainly by way of convection propelled by the force of buoyancy, and partially by way of diffusion.
