Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I don't study Physics at school, so please excuse me if i sound crude or miseducated.

I was reading about Einsteins theory of Special Relativity, and was wondering if i understand it correctly. In the book it states that einstein proposed that the speed of motion of a body through space and time combined, adds up to the sum total of the speed of light?

So if something were to travel at half the speed of light through space, then it would age half as quickly than something stationary in space?

is this correct?

i would appreciate any help. thanks
