revised Does Newtonian mechanics predict the bending of the course of light by objects with mass?
It seems to be unnecessary to say that it is both an answer and a question when it no longer includes a question component.

Hmmm . . . it seems you did interpret it literally. My bad.

You might also be able to say (at least if gravitational mass and inertial mass are assumed to be the same thing) that the Newtonian equation modeling gravity predicts bending of space . . .

If we interpret "Newtonian" very literally, you might say that light is made up of particles.

comment List of physics paradoxes
What do you mean by "terrible consequences"? Do you mean it would imply current theories are incorrect? That the Earth would be destroyed? That someone would lose tenure?

comment Are there any Earth-Meteorites on Earth?
One hypothetical way this could happen might be for the meteorite to slingshot around the sun (think Apollo 13 slingshotting around the moon) to get heading back in the right direction. Does anyone know if this could happen?

So, if the GTR is correct, would that make it seems unlikely that gravitons exist? (Should that be a separate question?)

comment Does the mass of an object change as it moves away from the earth?
@voix: If the energy used to lift the plate above the Earth came from the Earth-plate system as it was before the lifting occurred (say, from fossil fuel), would the mass of the Earth-plate system be the same after the lifting as it was before?

Would it work to say that you want to talk about Newtonian mechanics and the quantum theory of light?
