Chornos and old father time.
Read Caption. Before anyone rushes to lower elevations, though, the NIST scientists note that these effects are much too small for humans to perceive directly—adding up to approximately 90 billionths of a second over a 79-year lifetime.
February 4th, 2008, 06: But when he returned to Earth, many more years would have passed. June 9th, 2005, 04: Then time gets even more complicated because gravitational time dilation and relative velocity time dilation can happen at the same time. The twin would appear to be aging extremely rapidly to beings who have evolved in this hypothetical larger gravity well.
Hot Network Questions. But this concept gets pretty crazy when you start thinking about it: Lungs extract air slower. The difference isn't noticeable though — after spending six months on the ISS, astronauts have aged about 0.
But if he was going to die at the age of 80, he would still die at the age of 80, having experienced 80 years. The second factor is something called "relative velocity time dilation" where time moves slower as you move faster.
Yuran Yuran 30 1 6. A watch strapped to your ankle will eventually fall behind one strapped to your wrist.
All rights reserved. The bending of light by gravity, on the other hand, is relatively easy to measure. November 14th, 2013, 11: The finding is linked to the strange, time-bending effects of Albert Einstein's theories of relativity, which for the first time have been shown to affect earthbound distances and time frames.
