## Main Question or Discussion Point

I understand that General Relativity can make a difference between a spinning and non spinning mass thus can make better prediction for planetary orbits for example. The effect is frame dragging.

However if we simulate a newtonian gravitation and instead of representing a planet as a sphere with a mass, we use small spheres close to one another ( the diameter of the small spheres to choose should be a question of accuracy, that form a rotating sphere of the same diameter as the planet, can we get the same effect as in general relativity for low velocity objects ?
