The chapter on gravitation, astrophysics, and cosmology discusses some of the topics frequently appearing in the news (dark matter, gravitational clock shifts, etc.) from a most elementary perspective. The readers will discover that they can deduce, from simple arguments, that the universe has a finite extent and why it is widely believed that we cannot understand the motion of the astronomical objects solely by assuming that the mass of the universe is all “conventional.”

Keywords:   gravitation, astrophysics, cosmology, dark matter, gravitational clock shift
