On a science test that I took the other day, one of the questions inspired me to ask a question of my own. The original question was a multiple choice question that went something like this: if someone shoots a gun horizontally and simultaneously drops another bullet, which one would hit the ground first? Of course, I chose the answer stating that they will both strike the ground at the same time, since they would both be accelerating downward at roughly 9.8 m/s/s, and it seemed fairly obvious that for this question I should assume that there are no obstacles or any change in terrain. Anyway, my question is this, since Einstein discovered that time slows down as something approaches the speed of light, would the bullet that was fired horizontally from the gun hit the ground second, at least from the point of view of a stationary observer, since the faster velocities would cause one second to be longer for the bullet that is moving faster than the other bullet? Also, I should probably mention that this is not a homework question, it was only inspired by one.
