On the ISS, special relativity dictates the station's clocks run slower than clocks on Earth because of the high velocity, but general relativity dictates that the station's clocks run faster than clocks on Earth because of the lesser gravity. Which effect is predominant, and do the station's inhabitants age faster or slower than people on Earth? I could work this out for myself I suppose, but someone in the forum probably has the answer at hand. I hope.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
