Graviton scatter.

    Hi,

    Does graviton scatter and what is the implication?

    Thanks!

    It is possible in some current theories. Empirically we know that if gravitons do scatter from ordinary matter, it is extremely rare--otherwise we'd see interesting things happening in space. I'm pretty sure the most obvious effect would be in the moons and rings of the gas giants.
