Here’s one that brought our office to a standstill.

If you launch a probe/satellite and use a planets gravity to slingshot it (speed it up), then why does light not speed up going around a gravitational force?. Apparently you can’t go faster than the speed of light.
I know that it can cause a doppler shift in the colour spectrum, but what if it was already at the extreme ends of the spectrum e.g. Ultra Violet/infra red.

Pa-uls mind works in odd ways.
In true IT fashion, I’ll blame it on the wiring. 😀


If it doesn’t work, jam a screwdriver in there and jiggle it about.
