{ (x_2 - x_1)/c(t_2 - t_1) }

i understand the three types of vectors that arise (spacelike, timelike and lightlike) but what is the physical interpretation of a spacelike vector? simply two events where the spatial displacement is larger than the distance over which light travels in the time which separates the two events in the rest frame?

Am I along the right lines?
