    Are you asking if Relativity or Relativistic Theromdynamics has anything to do with Space Science (Astrophysics)? If that is the question, then the answer is certainly.

    There are aspects of both Special and General Relativity, particularly in massive stars and structures and highly energetic systems.

    Certain phenomenon involve high energy particles, e.g. electrons with energies in the MeV range or ions (nuclei) in the GeV and TeV ranges and even higher energies. When kinetic energy are several times the rest energy, then one must employ relativistic dynamics (both mechanics and electrodynamics).

    thank you
    but you ave me a warning...
    all that i want is
    more than one opinion...
