    Well I suppose this ties in with the theory that time is distorted by the force of gravity. However wouldn't the difference between the ground and say Mount Everest, be almost negligible?

    Meh, I kinda hoped it would add up to at least a second or something.

    I think I'm more impressed that they managed to measure this.

    So I was right, the difference is negligible. Therefore irrelevant...

    What I want to know is what's the difference between zero gravity and the surface of Earth?

    9.8 m/s^2

    Also mass has a tendency to slow down time. If you're next to the pyramid of Giza, you'll be moving slower in time than someone farther away.

    I think it was this video series (either 'time' or 'everything'). This is just the first part, there's 5 I think.

    Read about this yesterday. Started to marvel until I got to the end it says something like .92 ms over 72 years. That's the difference.
