I was thinking about this the other day. It seems to be commonly agreed on that gravity affects time (or at least the equipment we use to measure time). So I have a question, in our galaxy (and others) there is a lot of gravity compared to the amounts present in voids. Do you think an onlooker standing in the middle of a void would see things happening slower inside the galaxy? As an example, will he see a super nova slowly exploding or would it blow up at the same speed we're seeing it?

Yes, he would see all events occur in galaxy slower compared to us. Slower by 0.0000000000000000000000001% smile
