Hi, I would like to clarify a few special relativity questions that i cannot quite grasp. 1. There are two people on earth, person number one person is on a spaceship and is ready to take off at near the speed of light. Person number two is standing near the spaceship and will watch person number one take off. Now, the person watching the spaceship is (who is at rest in his frame of referance) watching a clock that is on the spaceship, as soon as the ship takes of at near the speed of light he will see the clock running alot slower than his own clock correct? But will he see the ship moving at near the speed of light? Or will he see the ship moving in synch with the slowed down clock, in other words will he see the ship moving very slow, or it may seem to him that the ship is stuck in the air? And the same question vice versa. Person number one on the spaceship see's person number two's clock running incredibally fast, but will he also see person number two moving incredibally fast or will he still be moving at his normal speed and only person number two's clock (or time) is moving fast to him. Maybe this wil explain to me why i never understood how the twins paradox was actually a paradox! 2. One person is living on a rogue planet moving at near the speed of light, But in his opinion he is at rest. So if he looks down at a clock on earth as he passes by, will he see it moving alot faster than his own clock or will it appear to be running the same as his own clock. Thanks for your time, and i am sorry if these topics have already been done to death.
