A collection is made of presently unexplained phenomena within our Solar system and in the universe. These phenomena are (i) the Pioneer anomaly, (ii) the flyby anomaly, (iii) the increase of the Astronomical Unit, (iv) the quadrupole and octupole anomaly, and (v) Dark Energy and (vi) Dark Matter. A new data analysis of the complete set of Pioneer data is announced in order to search for systematic effects or to confirm the unexplained acceleration. We also review the mysterious flyby anomaly where the velocities of spacecraft after Earth swing–bys are larger than expected. We emphasize the scientific aspects of this anomaly and propose systematic and continuous observations and studies at the occasion of future flybys. Further anomalies within the Solar system are the increase of the Astronomical Unit and the quadrupole and octupole anomaly. We briefly mention Dark Matter and Dark Energy since in some cases a relation between them and the Solar system anomalies have been speculated. 1

We use the corrections to the NewtonEinstein secular precessions of the longitudes of perihelia ˙ ̟ of some planets (Mercury, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn) of the Solar System, phenomenologically estimated as solvefor parameters by the Russian astronomer E.V. Pitjeva in a global fit of almost one century of data with the EPM2004 ephemerides, in order to put on the test the expression for the perihelion precession induced by an uniform cosmological constant Λ in the framework of the Schwarzschildde Sitter (or Kottler) spacetime. We compare such an extrarate to the estimated corrections to the planetary perihelion precessions by taking their ratio for different pairs of planets instead of using one perihelion at a time for each planet separately, as done so far in literature. The answer is negative, even by further rescaling by a factor 10 (and even 100 for Saturn) the errors in the estimated extraprecessions of the perihelia released by Pitjeva. Our conclusions hold also for any other metric perturbation having the same dependence on the spatial coordinates, as those induced by other general relativistic cosmological scenarios and by many modified models of gravity. Currently ongoing and planned interplanetary spacecraftbased missions should improve our knowledge of the planets ’ orbits allowing for more stringent constraints.

The Plebanski–Demianski solution is a very general axially symmetric analytical solution of Einsteins field equations generalizing the Kerr solution. This solution depends on seven parameters, the mass, a rotation parameter, a cosmological constant, NUT parameter, electric and magnetic charges, and an acceleration. In this paper we present a general description of matter wave interferometry in this general space–time. Particular emphasis is placed on a gauge invariant description of the symmetries of the gauge field. We show that it is possible to have access to all parameters separately except the acceleration. For neutral particles there is only access to a combination of the electric and magnetic the charge.
