1.3.5 The Moon effect again

Again, this short paragraph, consider the effect that the Moon would do on a signal coming from outer space. Looking at Figure 1.8, if another mass is placed at the left of the signal, the latticework between the two masses would stretch even further resulting in an overall frequency increase. More precisely, the end of signal near the new mass would increase substantially, while the other end near the mass at the centre, would increase only slightly for being further away from the new mass (Moon). This second point, is in opposition of what the classical theory predicts as seen in paragraph 1.2.1. However, both theories agree on the mathematical point of view, which is, that the difference in frequency Df between the two ends must decrease.
