Can we determine the physical structure of a black hole by observing its gravitational effect on objects in orbit? There are three possibilities that I see, and would like to test: Singularity at ...
I've been playing with simulations of co-orbital bodies similar to Saturn's moons Janus & Epimetheus- horseshoe orbits where the two bodies are of comparable mass- and I'm seeing some very odd ...
Are there sufficient observational data to measure non-Newtonian perihelion advances of any Asteroid and Comet orbits?
Anomalous (i.e. not predicted from Newtonian theory) advances of the perihelion direction have been observed for many solar system planet orbits and have been accounted for by Einstein's General ...
I am trying to calculate at which point gravitational equilibrium sets in for various bodys (planets stars neutron stars etc.) assuming they are perfect spheres. However the radius i get is not equal ...
I was wondering what a phone call would be like entering or falling t=into a black hole. Due to the massive density of the black hole and time would feel slower, how would that appear to the person on ...
