Time Dilation/Proper Time Question
This problem is easily remedied:
You start off with the earth at 10 yrs, but it views the spaceship as six years (due to the spaceship moving 0.8c).
Relative to the spaceship, it is the earth moving at 0.8c. Thus the spaceship measures 10 yrs, and sees the earth as six years.
