Does gravity travel instantaneously?

Does gravity travels instantaneously? Or it travels equal to the speed of light. Answer: No clear answer now. If we believe in the Theory of relativity, Gravity (Gravitational Waves travel with the same speed as that of light in vacuum. If gravitons are like photons, then it makes sense too. However I invite you to think […]

Accelerated Motion and Gravity Equivalence

It seems a principal of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity that there is an equivalence between accelerated motion and being in a gravitational field.  It seems that an observer would have no way to tell the difference between these two states.  However, the gravitational force being mediated by elementary force carrying particles (gluons I think), […]
