    Length Contraction

    Thanks for the answers. This has helped.

    Heard the moon is moving away from us

    What happens if the Moon is moving too far from us? Could it lose the orbit, start wandering around and crash some other planet? Or even Earth?

    Length Contraction

    Hello, Just one quick question. What happens to the molecular structure of an object if it moves close to the speed of light? Does the high speed affect the atoms, protons, neutrons, electrons, molecular structures? Does the density/thickness of the object increase? Or do the protons and...

    Curtailed length and the twin paradox

    Oh yes, I checked all the topics in this Relativity forum, but still... the spaceship twin makes changes to his velocity in relative to what? To the Earth twin? But it would be the same if the Earth twin made the changes in His velocity in relative to the spaceship twin.

    Curtailed length and the twin paradox

    Hello, I've got two quick questions. Why is it so that they say "if a object moves extremely fast then we see it curtailed/shortened a little bit"? But if it moves that fast that the length even may be noticeable, how on Earth do we SEE it shortened when it moves THAT fast past us? If a...
  7. Q

    I got a question.

    Hmm Good question. But like some people already mentioned... it would become imaginary. I wish I could move as fast as the infinite, but then I would need infinite power/force. Because if I moved in infinite speed, my mass woul also become infinite. a=F/M But to be more specific to your...
