Hello. Me and a friend of mine were trying to get our heads around a few of the paradoxes that are found within Einstein's theory of relativity and he came up with something we could not work out ( though I am sure someone here will be able to :) Imagine you were in a spaceship travelling at the speed of light towards a distant planet. This planet is very dark and the spaceship needs to put on its headlights to see exactly where this planet is. Soon as the headlights are switched on all those aboard the spaceship ( according to their reference frame ) see the light from the headlights shine off into the blackness of space at the speed of light and strike the planet. With the planet well lit from the spaceships headlights the ship continues to approach for an eventual landing. But what will the people on the planets surface see? Do they see the light from the headlights arriving at a point in time before the arrival of the spaceship?
