it's a typical hw problem I suppose, a meter stick travelling at v=.8c at an angle of 60 degrees to v as seen in the stick's reference frame. I solved it out and got .6m, which is incidentaly the same answer I got for if it were travelling parallel to v.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

is that, you know, how that works?
