    Time relations

    Cepheid Would say a cepheid variable star in a galaxy moving at 150,000 mps away from us appear to blink slower and how would this slow blinking, if so, be related to the redshift at which it was detected?

    Time relations

    Yes that is probably correct.

    Time relations

    If quasars are appearing to travel at almost the speed of light from us, what would the relative time frames between us be.

    Photons and black holes

    In that case, could there be enough neutrinos orbiting the galaxy to account for some "dark" matter?

    Photons and black holes

    Thanks you for your reply, I meant within by which a neutrino can pass through mass without likleyhood of collision so a neutrino in an eccentric orbit could pass through the sun on part of its orbit perhaps.

    Photons and black holes

    Does this mean that neutrinos could be orbiting within a large enough mass?

    Photons and black holes

    Does a black hole bend the space that photons travel in so that they are bent towards it? How would gravity attract a photon if they have no actual regular mass? Also, are neutrinos attracted to black holes and sucked in (theoretically?)

    Speed of light

    So whatever inertial frame one is measuring by, light travels at c as if the inertial frame was still?

    Speed of light

    the speed of light is 186000 mps or some such compared to what? :)

    Time and acceleration

    It doesn't click because I don't know how to draw a space time diagram yet.

    Gravitational Time Dilation

    Thank you Janus this is very interesting!

    Time and acceleration

    I am quite familiar with the twin paradox. I was just wondering what would happen in this new twist on it. Thank you for your help.

    Time and acceleration

    Are you saying that the galaxies are relatively still while the space between them increases? If I could take a physics or cosmology class I would. :) Thanks for your help.

    Time and acceleration

    Im not sure you understand. He is never accelerating away from the galaxy, he is decelerating away from the galaxy. until he is moving slower than it. Thanks for your help.

    Time and acceleration

    Also, if there were a white light on the ship, what would the shift in frequency beto someone on a planet in the galaxy?

    Time and acceleration

    Okay, lets say one is leaving the galaxy. The galaxy appears to be moving quite fast in a certain direction. Lets say a ship decelerates to the point to where it is nolonger moving with the galaxy. To the observers in the galaxy, the ship is now moving (accelerating apparently) away from...

    Gravity, Gravity, Gravity

    Then how could the new devices hinted at in the new scientific american measure different gravitational variances that are stable over parts of the earth. If these variances are stable then they have to be location specific on the earth and thus rotate with it?

    Time and acceleration

    Thanks for your help! So is it pressure created by acceleration perhaps that causes the effect? Also, could it be theoretically sound that the accelerating object could be seen as a decelerating object, with the rest of the universe seen as remaining at a fixed speed? Would the properties of...

    Time Dilation & big bang Question

    If the universe has a width it has a center? Has anyone tried to find the center?

    Time and acceleration

    So you are saying that acceleration and not relative speed is the factor?

    Time and acceleration

    It seems to me that the energy from an asteroid crashing into the earth at high speed and of the earth crashing into the asteroid at the same high speed would be the same. The potential energy of both the earth and the spaceship go up equally as the spaceships propulsion accelerates it? As...

    The black hole and the milk

    Perhaps by looking at the processes that create a black hole one could say it is not likely full of milk. But I'm not sure it could be proven.

    Time and acceleration

    "For one, it isn't the magnitude of gravitational force that causes time dilation, but the difference in gravitational potential" Found this on another post. Thought it might have something to do with this.

    Time and acceleration

    But it seems to me that both bodies could be seen to be in motion if all motion is relative. That it is merely a useful habit we are in to see it otherwise. I'm not sure you have cleared this up. Not to me anyways. :) Thanks though.

    Gravity and acceleration

    gravitons Thus the quotes :) Just trying to see what was out there about this. :)

    Time and acceleration

    Why is time relative when an accelerating body could be seen as accelerating away from another body at exactly the same speed as the body from which one is accelerating away from is speeding away from the first body? I. e. the bodies could be seen as accelerating away from each other at the...

    Gravity and acceleration

    If an accelerating body is identical to gravity, does this means scientists are leaning towards acceleration having to do with a somehow greater exchange of "gravitons?" Else not identical according to quantum theory?

    Dark stuff

    Does the path of light from distant galaxies curve according to with or without dark matter and energy?
