I have a couple of questions concerning P-T rotation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. From what I've seen, the basic message seems to be that the Fitz-Gerald contraction cannot be directly observed in practice, i.e. in the "world picture"

Is this correct?

2. Any good book treating this topic?
