com)-- The paper "Gravitational and Kinematic Time Dilation," published in the Journal of Astrophysical Mechanics by Dimiter Bayramov, reconsiders the operation of an atomic clock in Earth's gravitational flow and shows that due to the lower gravitational medium flow density and velocity in Earth orbit, a cesium-133 atomic clock experiences lower gravitational pressure and ticks few nanoseconds faster in Earth orbit compared to the same clock at Earth's surface.
