    Spacetime distortion - question

    Let's say there are two objects of the same mass. One of the is moving, the other not. Now let's look at both of them at a certain moment of time. In this MOMENT both are still, they occupy a certain space. Can you tell which one is moving based on spacetime distortion (theoretically)?

    'Looking' at atoms

    Can anyone explain to me just how we can 'look' at an atom and its, um, components? And how the process of 'looking' changes the object we're looking at?
