[tex] L = 10m \sqrt{1 - \frac{(0.99c)^2}{c^2}} = 1.41m[/tex]

now supose this rod encounters a hole taht is 1m long.. will the rod fall through. One of my profs told me that the rod will bend into the hole?!

Does this actually physically occur ??

Does it have something to do with someting along the lines of 'there is no perfectly solid object'?? (i just came up with taht im taking wild guesses here!)
