The G machine at NASA used to test Astronauts in high G conditions. My point is that an accelerated charged particle emits radiation relative to an observer. If the observer is accelerated along with the particle then the observer does not detect radiation being emitted by the particle. If that is true, and I have no way knowing if it is true, it should be telling us something important.
Yor_on, I don't think there is a problem regarding the difference in observation of em radiation between the comoving observer and a distant one (in the orbiting electron case). The issue is whether the electron is losing energy and its orbit decaying. This is a distinct measurable difference in how the electron will behave depending on the point of observation and would be a paradox. I am sure there is a fault in my reasoning somewhere, but I need to see, and be convinced, where it is. I will read some of the references you cite later.
So far everything I've read suggests that the electron is a wave. That being said it would mean the electron around the proton would not emit radiation and my original premise holds.The electron orbiting a star does not lose energy with respect to the star. As far as the star is concerned the electron does not emit radiation. The electron only emits radiation with respect to an observer outside the system as suggested by GR.
An accelerated charged particle emits radiation with respect to a stationary observer but if the observer is accelerated along with the particle does the observer still detect the particle emitting radiation?
