This fact is mind fucking blowing!

"two spacecraft some distance apart in the same orbit could stretch a tether between them and pull it taut, thereby describing a straight line through space different from their orbital path."

Now think about what that implies about the curved space-time theory of gravity!!! I think I have been waiting years to read this paper, and have just came upon it today.

If you can make it through it, I am sure it will keep you up an night for weeks!

P.S. The Speed of Gravity is >= 2x10^10 c (according to this)

Holy shit.

I had previously fallen into the camp of "theorists who prefer to think of gravity as being intrinsically related to geometry". At first read, I wasn't sold, but after consideration, this paper raises some disturbing questions.

(why the fuck am I working a job that I don't like when I could be writing mind-fuck papers like this?)
