Does science know how "fast" gravity is? Consider that no matter how far any two masses in the universe are, those masses will be affected by each other`s gravitational pull (however weak); given this, is the effect of that gravity instantaneous across the universe? If gravity "flowed" throughout the universe at the speed of light, this would imply that the further away masses are from each other, the greater the delay in the gravitational interaction.
