    Gerry Nightingale liked post by Physicist On thread : How can 299792458 m/s be different to 299792458 m/s ?
    If someone claimed that Gerry said he was going to kill someone and it turns out to be wrong then that is highly unethical. If that's the case I'll be boycotting the forum for a few days for false...

    Gerry Nightingale liked post by TFOLZO On thread : Does Differential Altitudinal Muon Decay prove SR?
    Muons decay for both reasons! They decay both because they are inherently unstable and because they interact with the surrounding medium, which includes water & iron plates as used in the...

    Gerry Nightingale liked post by TFOLZO On thread : Does Differential Altitudinal Muon Decay prove SR?
    Muons are formed from cosmic rays in the upper atmosphere, decaying over time as they pass into the lower atmosphere, hence detection rates are higher at higher altitudes. There is an attempt to...

    No. The microwaves aren't coming past you slower and the second isn't bigger. The microwaves are coming past you at the same speed, regardless of your gravitational potential. The fact that someone...

    It's done already and you know it, only it's called the coordinate speed of light. Note that the elapsed time t displayed by an optical clock at some elevation is directly dependent on the...

    TFOLZO: If we now have two objects e.g. spaceships, at distance x from one another and traveling at the same speed relative to a third observer (say on earth), would the earth observer also consider...

    Gerry, the colour of light if a function of the receiver as well as the emitter due to the Doppler Effect. Energy is frame dependent. Doppler effect - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia...

    It's true and it can be proven quite simply. I already provided enough information to piece together a proof. But let's be clear about this. It is sufficient that for a pulse of light reflecting off...
