Einstein Vindicated

If one supposes that the electron mass is in fact variable depending on which orbital shell it occupies then we may draw more on Einstein's idea of mass-energy relativity.

The Bohr model is not lost at all; which way to measure then the electron mass again?  Milliken's oil-drop - a select sample with averaged resultats?  Why not work out an alternate subatomic model, not even too distant from quantized approaches?  Just more scaled, a sloping gradient lending itself to calculus for averages.

  1. And what if the mass of the earth is increasing, not only its radius (from cooling & expansion), but its mass, from particles ejected from the sun? What amount is actually falling on us annually, biennually, bicentenially, etc.?
