- Time Dilation inside a hollow shell 2 answers
First of all, this is a thought experiment regarding faster-than-light communication.
Say you had an immense hollow planet that was made of some heavy material such as neutron-star dust.
Due to the mass of the planet, the speed of light on the surface is slowed down by several percent due to gravitational time dilation.
But the planet is hollow. Since the gravitational force inside the planet is zero, the speed of light in the interior will be faster than that on the surface.
If we were to run a fiber-optic cable from the surface through the interior, would we be able to communicate faster than the speed of light, as far as the denizens on the surface were concerned?
If yes, would this cause a paradox of any sort?
