As Einstein said, when we talk of higher speeds close to the speed of light, time becomes an important factor...So much that the time coordinate that was almost non-existent before, becomes a dominant force...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So if we move at speeds close to the speed of light, the time coordinate become much more important...But I aint clear about the implications of this phenomenon..Can anybody shed some light on this topic?

Thanx!
