Hi! I've just began studying Special Relativity, so I'm naturally having trouble understanding some topics. I just need an opinion on whether my understanding of the topic is right or not. I've been wondering how time dilation is connected to space contraction. For a relativistic moving frame, space contracts in the direction of motion and at the same time, light travels a greater distance and time accordingly slows down to account for the invariant value of c? I'm just wondering if my understanding of the topic is correct. I'd really appreciate any input.
