I was reading a closed thread here about the length contraction being real or not. The best I could understand my self is that space is the one that contracts, the final post by an experienced forum member saying something like its the space-time that changes, it rotates. But I still have to ask this. So we have a train that is 299.792.458 meters long, travelling along a line. We setup a timer on that line such that it begins to record when the train touches it, and stops recording when the train stops touching it. The faster the train moves the shorter the time recorded. But at the train speed of 299.792.000 m/s, will the timer record more or less than a second ?
