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

I want to clear a doubt on Special Relativity, time dilation and clocks.

If we get an accurate clock and make it orbit the, for example, Earth very, very fast, will the actual mechanical clock lag behind from the accurate clocks on Earth? The thing in this question is about the actual mechanical lag or what? I don't understand...

Thank you for your patience...
