# Time dilation in a space craft and at high altitudes [duplicate]

Question: In which part of a accelerating spacecraft does time pass more slowly?

Therefore does time pass more quickly or slowly at high altitudes in a gravitational field.

• Hi James, I've linked an existing question that is the same as yours. Note that for an accelerating rocket the spacetime geometry is Rindler while around the Earth the geometry is Schwarzschild. So although in both cases time runs faster as you move upwards there is a difference between them. – John Rennie Oct 19 '15 at 16:38
