I know that you probably get tired of weird questions like this so I apologize in advance. I was thinking about length contraction in special relativity. I was thinking if superman was moving towards a basket ball at close to the speed of light when he passed it from his frame of reference it would look a bit like a disk. I was wondering If he could reach out and briefly place his hand around it. If he could this would seem odd to me because from the basket ball's frame of reference it would be superman that was undergoing length contraction. I know from my readings that problems like this are usually solved by understanding that event that are simultaneous in one frame of reference are not necessarily simultaneous in another. Looking at this particular scenario I find it difficult to imagine how things would look from the basketball's frame of reference. Would it seems like parts of his hand touched the ball before the other's? Would superman seem distorted in ways other then just length? It's really hard to picture.
