well if you could explain it to us I am sure you could explain it to the readers of that great text book. give it a shot
I wonder if the people who launch satellites are aware of that.How big an effect are you saying velocity has?
Is there any intuition for this?
I know if you were trying to accelerate a craft from rest using a rocket, you get diminishing returns at higher speeds (with respect to dv/dt WRT the rest frame) due to approaching the speed of light. Is it at all similar to that?
