The quantam world. Einstein’s work on time – space and time as the same – space-time fabric – woven together and can get mixed up. It wasn’t just a metronome that ticks.. at different places metronomes tick different speeds. There is no absolute time. You will see the time tick slower at the base of my feet, than at the top of my head. This is because the nearer you are to a big object like the earth, the more bent and warped is the space-time, and the slower time ticks. On our planet it is miniscule, but in the universe
At the large haystack radio antenna, just north of Boston – one of largest in the world – Astronomer Irwin Shapiro at the helm. They devised an experiment to see if the sun causes time to tick differently, than how it ticks here on earth. How long would it take for a light signal to get to Mercury from the Earth and it’s echo to get back to the earth? They were looking for a measurement of time to a very high accuracy. In the results, a spike appears in the orbit of mercury, whenever the planet goes behind the sun as seen from the earth. It deviated from it’s’ orbit.
