Quote from: WhiteRose on September 04, 2010, 11:56:56 pmI may be wrong, but I was under the impression that the Newtonian equations stop applying when objects near the speed of light, and that it was the speed of the object - not the mass - that made the difference. Of course, when things are moving that quickly, the scale has to be massive, so there is a correlation.
