A number of researchers have been practicing one of the world's leading theoretical physicist, Albert Einstein, the theory of relativity. In conclusion, Einstein's theory is true that the further from the earth, the less time running, reports Times of India.

That is, the faster you age if you stay on top of speeding-rise buildings than in homes that tread the earth in a matter-despite the very small. Living in the High Building, Short Your Age!

Living in the High Building, Short Your Age!

This conclusion is delivered from the United States scientist who proved Einstein's theory. Although the concept adopted for many years been, but now the difference can be measured for the first time with amazing accuracy.

By using a pair of the world's most accurate clock, a physicist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, found that climbing stairs to the second floor and so on will only make you age faster.

This study uses an atomic clock “quantum logic” that can keep time within one second of more than 3.7 billion years old.

If this accurately one hour ride one foot (1 foot = 30.48 cm / cm), then the clock is moving more quickly – although a fraction of a billionth of a second. So, if you go up two feet from the surface of the earth, you will reduce the 90 / billion per second from 79 years of your life time. With up 10 feet onto the roof of the building, you quickly reduce 900/miliar per second from the age of 79 years of your life.

“And if there is to spend your life at the top of the Empire State building floor 102 and 1250 feet high, you lose 104 / million seconds,” said one researcher James Chin-Wen Chou as quoted from the pages of The Telegraph 23 September 2010 edition.

They managed to prove Einstein's theory is that at the height of the time go faster because of the influence of graft strength decreases. However a spokesman for the institute recognizes the phenomenon called “gravitational time dilation ‘does not have a significant impact on human life.

“The difference (time) is too small for human life. However, this finding could contribute knowledge to the fields of geophysics and others,” the spokesman said.

Calculation of the team will be used to improve the technology used to measure the earth and the gravitational field. The findings are published in the journal Science.
