This is my first post. :) Here it goes... Suppose alice's spaceship is travelling at speed close to c.. in line with a star. Because of length contraction she's going to find the distance towards it shorter than the "rest" distance. Does this mean she's going to get a closer look at the star (like looking through a telescope). Since there is no theoretical limit on how closer she can get near to speed of light, there's no limit for length contraction too. (As long as the values are not exactly c and zero respectively) The same idea in a different question is , if she is travelling in line with sun, is she going to feel more heat because of her apparent closeness to sun?
