Sorry if this has been asked, but I did a search and didn't find a relating topic.

This thought came to me a few days ago when a friend asked me about time dilation. Time beats slower and distance is shorter for a moving reference frame with respect to a non-moving reference frame, and the amount of each is dependent upon the speed.

So, for a photon that travels at c, would time not pass and would all space be a single point in the photon's moving reference frame with respect to the non-moving reference frame?
