This question may seem irrelevant, but I am asking nonetheless. I have only recently been introduced to Einstein's Relativity Theory. It really fascinates me. I read in one experiment conducted that two highly accurate clocks were synchronized and while one stayed stationary, the other was flown around the world from East to West at high speeds. Upon reuniting the two clocks, the times varied slightly. The clock that was in motion had less time showing, therefore proving Einstein's theory to be correct. My question stems from this experiment. Would we see the same results if the plane were flying from West to East, against the rotation of the earth? I would really appreciate any information, links, websites, or suggestions...thanks!
