Question: As an object approaches C and its length contracts, does space-time contract also, causing the a larger range of the universe to become visible? I.e. if the hubble space telescope was traveling at high velocity, would it gain access to light from more distant galaxies than it has from its Earth orbit? 2) If length contracts with velocity, does the m/s of the speed of light apply in contracted meters and seconds? If so, it would seem that objects could never exceed C in their own frame, but that the object could exceed C from the perspective of slower moving frames. An object accelerating at a constant rate, for example, could experience time dilation and length contraction in such a way that the universe would change scale for it. At the same time, the object may enter into a context with other objects moving at comparable speed and dilation. This sounds like sci-fi or crackpottery to me, but I don't see why the speed of light wouldn't reset to the length contraction and dilation levels of an accelerated frame. How could light travel any slower relative to one frame than another?
