Assuming a mass warp spacetime such that the curvature of spacetime extend one light year away from that object. If I am standing at 1 light year away from the object and the object start losing mass by emitting light, will you feel the change in the curvature first before the radiation reach you after 1 year or feel the change in curvature instantly the emitted radiation reach you?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My apologies for such qns as I am not smart at all.
