suppose we have a stationary observer 'A' at the origin. at t=0 rockets 'B' and 'C' pass the origin moving at gamma=10 but rocket B stops. when rocket 'C' reaches some point along the x axis rocket 'B' accelerates to gamma=10 as measured by rocket 'C'. when rockets 'B' and 'C' meet its over. who ages more, rocket 'B' or 'C'? let us also assume that there exists a long line of evenly spaced clocks, perfectly synchronized to observer 'A', along the x axis.
obviously if rocket 'C' is considered to be stationary then we just have the twins paradox. but what is the result if we look at it from a different point of view? obviously the result should be the same.
