Sorry, I didn't see it through all the technical language at first pass. Now I see it. Thanks.PAllen said:Please read the thread. These questions have all been dealt with in the thread.

In the special case of uniform acceleration in special relativity, radar simultaneity for the rocket is identical to Rindler simultaneity. However, if distance is represented as .5 c ##\tau## (for the round trip) , then position coordinates are different from the Rindler. The result is that horizon interpretation is the same for these two coordinate choices.pervect said:One last point. Minkowskii and Rindler coordaintes are not the only coordinate choices here. One might also think about using radar coordinates from the spaceship, for instance, which would be an interesting exercise in "switching points of view". The first step, according to my suggestions, to look at things from this 'point of view" would be to find the associated metric. I have never done that, but it'd be the first step I'd suggest if one wanted to carry this out.
