Fat Guy vs. Skinny Guy

  1. Dec 28, 2009 #1
    Does a fat guy see more stars than a skinny guy?

    Or in other words, is the size of the Universe, a mass dependent variable, dependent on the mass of the observer?

    Interesting question.

    My personal feeling on this crucial topic is that light pollution and the feasibility to transport the fat/skinny observer to excellent dark sky sites, is more decisive than the actual adipose tissue.
