According to model by Gorkavyi (Origin and Acceleration of
the Universe without Singularities and Dark Energy, BAAS,
2003, 35, #3) a total energy of relic high-frequency
gravitational radiation in our Universe can be very high.
Relic plane gravitational waves can interact with stationary
gravitational fields of galaxies and stars and create an
additional ``relic acceleration'' that proportional to
gravitational potential {~GM/(Rc^{2})} or angle of
deflection of waves by a central mass. General equation for
Newton and relic acceleration is {F = -
\partial\varphi/\partial r + \alpha\varphi/c^{2}} (1), where
\varphi is gravitational potential; \alpha is vector
that parallel {\partial\varphi/\partial r}; {\alpha~
0.001-1 cm/sec^{2}} and depends from size, density and
strength of objects (all bodies in a sea of relic
gravitational waves are gravitational detectors). From
equation (1) for the anomalous acceleration of Pioneers that
close to constant at heliocentric distance r we have: {F
= -Gm/r^{2} - \alpha GM/(Rc^{2})} (2), where m is solar mass,
{GM/(Rc^{2})} is potential of Galaxy, {\alpha = 0.127
cm/sec^{2}} for solid object of small size like Pioneer.
According (1)-(2) Pioneer acceleration depends from constant
relativistic potential of Galaxy but is heliocentric due to
strong gradient of solar potential. Similar or larger value
of \alpha can be for stars and gas clouds, but for solid
planets like Earth, \alpha can be few orders smaller due
to high density, size larger than typical wavelength of
relic gravitational waves, and fast dissipation of
small-scale high-frequency mechanical oscillations inside
solid body. According (1) relic acceleration for galaxies
many times larger than Newton force, for galaxy cluster --
in a few orders. Laboratory experiment can reveal
differences {~10^{-8} cm/sec^{2}} in acceleration of
objects with same mass but different sizes (1 vs. 2 m).
Relic acceleration will decrease with a time due to
decreasing density of energy of relic gravitational
radiation and this effect can be a driver of galactic
evolution.
