8. Observational support for Einstein’s General Relativity came from the observation that A.the apparent positions of stars near the sun’s position on the sky during a solar eclipse are shifted relative to their usual positions. B.atomic clocks flown in Earth orbit tick more rapidly than similar clocks on the surface of the Earth. C.the acceleration of gravity on the moon is the same as that on the Earth. D.the Earth and other massive bodies are spherical, because of the bending of space-time.
9. Light coming from the surface of a massive, compact object (but not a black hole) and viewed by a distant observer will
10. If a spaceship traveling toward us at 99% the speed of light shines light in our direction,

2 11. A star is 100 light-years away as measured by an observer on the Earth. A space traveler moving past the Earth and toward the star at a Lorentz factor of 5 (speed of 0.98c) measures
12. Among the serious problems with traveling in space at very close to the speed of light is the A.high mass in fuel that is needed to provide sufficient energy for such a trip. B.length contraction that would make the spaceship too short to hold humans. C.illusion that the distances to stars are much greater than is actually the case. D.rapid aging of people on such a starship.
13. The main scientific method for estimating the age of rocks and human artifacts is by measuring
