## On the Speed of Gravity and Relativistic v/c Corrections to the Shapiro Time Delay

##### Abstract

Recent papers by Samuel [1,2] declared that the linearized post-Newtonian v/c effects are too small to have been measured in the recent experiment involving Jupiter and quasar J0842+1845 [3,4,5] that was used to measure the ultimate speed of gravity defined as a fundamental constant entering in front of each time derivative of the metric tensor in the Einstein gravity field equations.We describe our Lorentzinvariant
formulation of the Jovian deflection experiment and confirm that v/c effects are do observed, as contrasted to the erroneous claim by Samuel, and that they vanish if and only if the speed of gravity is infinite.
