How does Special Relativity Affect an Orbit?


This
graphic image of how Special Relativity affects an orbit was extracted
from the evolutionary
algorithm orbitgravitysim11.exe using
scenario [26] in that
software. It should be a fairly simple logical deduction to realize
that Einstein's formula for the limit at the velocityoflight causes
a reduction in expected velocity when compared to the standard Newtonian
formula. A reduction in velocity for an orbital body can only result
in an inward spiral. If the orbit is less eccentric (more circular)
then the inward spiral becomes increasingly less.

was primarily built on war and the deceit required to win that war.
