aimforthehead Posted July 25, 2011 Share Posted July 25, 2011 Here is my understanding (or lack thereof) in dealing with time. From what I understand time is directly related to gravity. The higher the gravity, the slower the time. But it is relative. Just because time is moving slower does not mean you will sense everything in slow motion. So, if you were to be on the outside of a black hole, watching someone fall into the black hole, they would appear to be falling slower and slower, until they stopped moving indefinitely, but to them, it would be a constant motion (except for spaghettification, so there would be a difference in different parts of your bodies, assuming you somehow lived to see it). So, when NASA puts cameras on their space crafts and show the launching, is the time actually moving faster and faster gradually? What is the difference between having a camera in a space where time moves more quickly and physically being there? To understand my question easier, if we dropped a camera with live video feed in the black hole with the person falling, would it appear to be getting slower and slower, or constant like to the person falling?
