[/color][/b]Where do you get this nonsense?Einstein's [/size]Relativity states that the closer you get to the speed of light time slows down. If you really think time moves slower in space then you are neglecting Relativity.
Time is not effected by gravity.
There are theories that if you were to completely stop in space and not subject to the motion of any cosmological body then time would speed up, not slow down.
Alan, where ever you got your research from, it fails.
Why Does Gravity Slow Time? - Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics
It is very hard to keep my composure in the light of your unpleasant remark that I am stating nonsense. One of my strengths in that of astrophysics and general physics and I take the highest umbrage for a comment from a person like you, who by your incorrect remarks makes it obvious that your understanding of even the very basics of physics is limited in the extreme
Gravity effects the flow of time , indeed you age infinitesimally differently if you worked on the top of of very high mountain when compared to anyone living at sea level "THIS IS A FACT OF PHYSICS"
Because you obviously think I am inventing the effect of gravity or mass to the flow of time I give you just one link of countless others to check your facts against
By your comment make it obvious to me that you do not only think I am speaking a load of nonsense but no less than Albert Einstein himself

Why Does Gravity Slow Time?
Why Does Gravity Slow Time?
Imagine a pair of twins, Alice and Bob, who will live to exactly the same age. Rather than giving this age in years, which might be confusing in what follows, let's say each will live for one billion heart beats, and their hearts beat at 60 beats per minute. Alice, a hurricane hunter by trade, has become bored with Earth's puny storms and has moved to Jupiter to chase its Great Red Spot, a centuries old cyclone of truly mammoth proportions.
Now gravity is stronger on Jupiter than on the Earth, one consequence being that Alice weighs more. But more interestingly, Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity - his theory of space, time and gravity - says that, due to the lower gravitational potential on Jupiter than on Earth, time as experienced by Alice is moving more slowly relative
to time experienced by Bob back on the Earth. What does this mean? First, the word 'relative' is crucial here: it means that as far as Alice is concerned, nothing in her own experience indicates to her that time is moving more slowly.
The point is, more slowly relative to what
? Alice herself feels nothing out of the ordinary, for instance her heart still beats at 60 beats per minute according to her
wristwatch. It is only when Alice and Bob compare
their experiences of the passage of time that they notice something very strange.
For example, when they speak with each other over the satellite link, Bob notices that Alice's voice is a bit deeper and she is speaking more slowly - exactly like a tape recording replayed at a slightly slower speed. But Alice does not feel that she is speaking slowly, or thinking slowly, or anything else for her is happening more slowly.
And from Alice's point of view, she notices that Bob's voice is higher
pitched than she remembers, and he is talking (and thinking, and doing everything else) a bit faster
- exactly like a tape recording played back at a faster speed. More to the point, when Bob puts the microphone next to his heart, Alice hears it beating at faster than 60 beats per minute according to her
wristwatch (and her
heart); conversely, Bob hears Alice's heart beating more slowly than his. Both agree that Alice could return to Earth before her billion heart beats run out and attend Bob's funeral.
How is this possible? Why does gravity affect the rate at which time moves? One of the simplest ways to understand this begins with Einstein's equation E = mc2
, which says that mass is a (very concentrated) form of energy. As a consequence of this, Einstein reasoned that it would be possible to build a perpetual motion machine (and thus get something - energy - for nothing) unless gravity slows time. The machine in question is show in the figure. It consists of a vertical conveyor belt stretched between two pulleys which, to keep things simple, we imagine to be frictionless.
