    B Is there a way to measure gravity in a particular area of space

    How would one calculate the trajectory of a photon around a planet/star?

    B Is there a way to measure gravity in a particular area of space

    Why can't an object's gravity be measured without comparing it to another object (edited)? It's a physical property that exists in space, no?

    B Is there a way to measure gravity in a particular area of space

    Dumb question probably -- But is there a way to measure gravity in a particular area of space, or a "measurement" .. I.E. the gravity 10 miles above earth v.s 1000 miles above. Not force on another object, but some "unit" or measure of gravity itself.

    Is the speed of light infinite?

    The reference point could be the center of the 'space'.

    Is the speed of light infinite?

    If there was a 'space' or universe with just one electron. What would prevent the electron from traveling from one side to the other faster than c?

    News Troubling Coverage of the Fort Hood Shootings

    Who cares what the motive was? If there were "politics" involved with the media coverage (to avoid muslim hate crimes) , why is this troubling to you?

    Why do you have the desire to be scared? Are you also a hypochondriac?

    Are there any good viruses for human beings?

    Cool. I wonder if any other components to the human body evolved from a virus or bacteria? White blood cells maybe?

    Are there any good viruses for human beings?

    I've wondered about this myself.. Going by evolution logic, wouldn't it make more sense if a virus actually was beneficial to the body it lives in? That way the virus could be easily spread to other hosts over a longer period (since it would make the host live longer on average)...

    News How is Fox News Fair and Balance? How is Fox news the only non-currupt news station?

    This is funny because this is exactly how illogical people think... This must really appeal to all the Glenn Beck fanatics..

    Oop, better lock this thread, people are starting to get nasty...

    A few questions on time

    Well, how about with gravitational time dilation effects instead of velocity? If you could feel the gravity of 100 suns (and the "time" in that frame), would this be considered relative as well?

    A few questions on time

    Right, I guess that's why someone mentioned this is more of philosophy discussion... How could you measure a personal experience traveling at .9999c?
