hi

can someone please solve this paradox related to the twin paradox??

jane continues to be on earth and dick goes to a planet 20 light years away at a speed of 0.8 c. Every year dick sends a message to Jane. Now for Jane due to time dilation the time taken by dick to reach the planet is 25 years and back to earth another 25 years. Also the frequency the Jane receive the messages while dick is receding away should be equal to one message per three years and while he is coming back it should be equal to three messages per year. Now to due to length contraction dick feels that he is twelve light year away from the planet. Hence he should take 15 years to reach the planet and 15 years back to earth. That means he has sent out a total of 30 messages. Please explain tome how Jane receives these 30 messages.

Please note that all the units and formula e were in accordance with Einstein's special theory of relativity and the formula e and the results were according to the same. Please help me as this question is perplexing my mind since the last 51 hours.

Thanking you,

(LAKSHAY BEHL)
