Just wondering. Say, there was a box and in this box there was a ball. There is now gravitation force acting on the ball.
Say then the box is bombarded with gravitons, which are carring the GF of a far off planet. Say, the box lands on the planet after 200,000 years of being pulled towards it. When the box lands it now has weight and is sitting steady on the planet's surface. But what about the ball inside. Do gravitons pass through matter. If not the gravitation force of the planet transmitted through the graviton would not reacting with the matter in the ball and when the box landed the ball would still be floating with no gravitational force acting on it.
