Time slows as you speed up right, so..... ??? Hi everyone, a new guy here with a question. Having watched a few programs and learnt a few things since i left school i have this question burning away in my little brain.[b(] So i've found this forum, gone for the biggest section, and if i'm in the wrong section, mods, please move this. Here goes. If it has been proved that astronauts whilst wizzing about in orbit slow down a little, a second for that cosmonaut or something... so, thats only doing what 120k? what about the Earth in the Universe, i heard the figure in a program but forgot it. This means since the big bang we've experienced time slower than something at the center of the Universe staying static, therefore our galaxy isn't as old as the center.. however the outer galaxies are going even faster ( because they are moving away from us ) so they must be going even slower, but as they were "born" first they might be the same age as us or younger!.. but then at the center things are running at the "true" time so could even be more evolved than us. i've heard programs talking about time slowing down as you go faster, i've heard galaxies all moving away from us i've heard we are going fast ourselves but i've never heard of a link between all this that puts forwards these theories Take it away guys. Thanks for listening to my mad ramblings.
