I believe this is related to relativity, as it weighs in on how quickly information can travel through space; and I'm pretty sure this is the idea behind gravity's speed being that of light. However, I was wondering if you think it could be possible that gravity may be faster than light, as massive bodies are influencing the shape of space/time itself. From what I figure, the speed at which space/time is distorted (gravity) isn't necessarily equal to or less than the speed of light, since this doesn't seem to be information moving through space, but rather space itself moving. In addition, perhaps the speed of gravity could be slower than light. I'm curious of the implications of this, such as gravitational influence from a speeding body (away from you) could become zero if it is travelling faster than the rate that the gravity can be propagated through space/time. All this being said, what is the current consensus about the "speed of gravity"? Has it been measured? Are there any compelling reasons for a particular speed? Any interesting implications of these possibilities?... are they possible?
