This form of time dilation is also real, and it’s because in Einstein’s theory of general relativity, gravity can bend spacetime, and therefore time itself. The closer the clock is to the source of gravitation, the slower time passes; the farther away the clock is from gravity, the faster time will pass.
Accordingly, does gravity speed up aging?
In other word, microgravity shortens the lifetime of bacteria. The conclusion is that gravity accelerate biological aging, not chronological aging.
Herein, does gravity affect how fast we age?
They would indeed. It’s nothing to do with the body, or the clock, or the satellite, it’s that time itself changes the rate that it flows. It doesn’t necessarily flow forwards at the rate of one second per second as a result of high speeds in special relativity or strong gravitational fields in general relativity.
How is 1 hour 7 years in interstellar?
The first planet they land on is close to a supermassive black hole, dubbed Gargantuan, whose gravitational pull causes massive waves on the planet that toss their spacecraft about. Its proximity to the black hole also causes an extreme time dilation, where one hour on the distant planet equals 7 years on Earth.
There is no correlation between Gravity and aging. Aging is a process that is independent of Gravity. Gravity is a property of matter. Has more to do with atmospheric pressure than the effects of Gravity.
Scientists have recently observed for the first time that, on an epigenetic level, astronauts age more slowly during long-term simulated space travel than they would have if their feet had been planted on Planet Earth.
**One year in space would be 365 days /1 year on earth…..
To a watcher on Earth, yes. To a very, very, very, very, very minute degree time will move more slowly for you on Mars, as compared to Earth, due to gravitational time dilation. You would age at the same rate.
It’s long been known that exposure to radiation damages DNA, but a new study has found an additional risk for astronauts: DNA replication is more prone to errors in microgravity.
Time passes about 0.66 parts per billion faster on the Moon than on Earth, due to not being in as strong a gravity field.
“Actually the pull of gravity on facial tissues is not a significant component of facial aging. Instead, other factors, like the loss of facial fat and sun damage are more contributory in the complex process of aging.”
The stretching out of time predicted by Einstein’s theories of relativity is known to occur on cosmic scales, such as near a black hole or with a speeding galaxy. But now researchers have measured the effects of relativity on a smaller scale.
In short, a person near a black hole will age slower compared to someone far away from the black hole. This is because the passing of time is slowed down due to the extremely strong gravitational field near the black hole and thus, any physical aging processes will also happen slower.
