- Speed of light in a gravitational field? 4 answers
Black holes possess a gravitational force so great it can pull anything in. Including light. So placing these side by side, If I were to shoot a laser pointer out of a cannon at a black hole, and also be standing stationary pointing a laser at a black hole, conventional logic would tell me that the light from the cannon-shot laser would be traveling faster than light once captured in the gravitational field of the black hole, as opposed to the light from my stationary laser in the same gravitational field. Am I right? or am I confusing some part of the theory relativity in here?
