The subscripts r and 1 are the time as measured at a distance r from the gravitational source and the time measured far from any source of gravitational distortion, respectively. The time-dilating effect of General Relativity makes the clocks that are on the surface of the Earth run slower by about five parts in ten billion, compared to clocks in orbit (farther from the center of the Earth). These two time-dilating effects (gravitation and relative speed) are in the opposite direction and are of different magnitudes.
