Regarding the observer riding on the middle of the train sees the light strike first the fwd first and then the aft. Will it be safe to say that for the observer to see the light strikes them both at the same time to adjust the tail of the train by shortening the train so that light can arrive at the same time..... shortening the path of light(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

any opinion on this..
