Main Question or Discussion Point
Am I going to absorb 4 years of light data from Alpha Centauri or is it just going massively blueshift?
Relative to what? The gravitational force between the voyager probes and sun (and voyager probes and planets and everything else in the inner solar system) is lower than it was in the past.Isn't it true that the voyager probe feels less force from relative accelerations
What?This tells me that time is kind of more like constant
What?but the forces in nature like gravity and the energy from our sun create little time-warp-zones that bind the action within them.
???Or to paraphrase, lightwaves are the fluid of time.
This is true, and it is already taken into account. You have to do the same for exoplanet searches and even position measurements of stars.Pulsars pulse at atomic clock precision, shouldn't there be a slight oscillation in pulse rate over the course of a year based on the rotation of the Earth depending on if we're swinging towards the star or away from the star?
No, this would violate General Relativity.Basically it would take more acceleration in deep space to feel "1 G force".
Please provide a source for this claim.These are test results returned from the Voyager probe.
I don't know the numbers, but I assume it's something like 10.1m/s^2 or more acceleration to feel a G
Sorry, that can't be right. 1 week on Earth's clocks -> less than 1 week on an on-board clock.[..] If you take a clock with you in the spaceship, you will get a different value (4 years + 1 week). [..]
Ah yes of course! (I have not been drinking... could this be due to lack of sleep? )The "1 week" is the on-board clock and corresponds to 4 years on earth (and the rest frame of alpha centauri). The 4 years correspond to the 4 years before where the spaceship was at rest on earth.
