    Place to discuss the Theory of Relativity

    This book has finally arrived. Let's see how I get on :rolleyes:

    Good question. That confuses me as well :)

    Place to discuss the Theory of Relativity

    I've heard this before (although I don't know exactly why this is true) which is why I staggered it with a period of non-acceleration. The fact that you can't (as far as we're aware to date) get that speed is acceptable. I'm taken that as a given because people a lot smarter than I said...

    Numbers don't bother me much. The bit that I find counter intuitive is the same objects having different speeds depending on all the other different objects which would also have different speeds which depends on .... etc, etc p.s. I'll try General Relativity from A to B by Robert Geroch...

    Will do :smile: Can you recommend anything to a layman?

    Thank's for taking the time to explain it to me (though it may take a bit longer for me to actually understand it though :)) )

    I must admit, I do have issues with this. The 'Speed of light' and the speed at which light propergates I think are different issues (I have a lot of ideas about this but there is a high probablitity that I'm wrong with all of them :biggrin: )

    Wow, that's really counter intuitive isn't it. Is it kind of like an object reaching a terminal velocity due to resistance and gravity?

    Place to discuss the Theory of Relativity

    I read this and I'm not sure if this is the right place to post. If it isn't then I appologise. An object in space accelerates to 2/5 th the speed of light and then stops accelerating travelling at a steady pace. If it doid this 3 times it would travel 1.2c. Now, if something cannot go...

    Speed of Light always remains constant ? think again.

    That was almost poetic Nereid :smile:
