Mati,

The loss to which I refer causes Mercury's perihelion to advance, but is

present in all of the orbits around our Sun. I don't fully grasp why the

entire orbit does not decay except that it is relativistic and makes the

orbit itself orbit. Thus my question.

Calculations have indicated to me that near a black hole, the advance can be

the entire orbit.

Sincerely,

Bill Eshleman
