GR explains starlight bending as result from curvature of space near a massive object.
GR also predicts gravitation red shift which means frequency of light changed when
the light pass by a massive mass. And frequency of light change can make the light bend.
Thus, can starlight bending be a result of gravitation red shift? If yes, are the two
results different, Mathman?
