Charles, Thanks for your helpful suggestions. By the way, I find your web page links concerning time dilation, dark matter, gravitational lensing, etc. quite fascinating. I have since I was a teenager found the Lorenz transformation a source of great interest in understanding the limits of space travel. Cheers, Robert Robert A.
