Abstract

The aberration of light was discovered by James Bradley in 1725. It is caused by the finite speed of light versus the orbital speed of the earth. This combination causes us to see the star or the sun in a retarded position. Many scientists conclude that the speed of gravity must be very high or else the planets would spin out of orbit. This paper suggests that the speed of gravity can be the same as the speed of light and that the planets will not spin out of orbit.
