1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Time dilation says, " Moving clocks run slow".

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

For example, a stationary clock shows 4 PM and at the same 4 PM a space craft moves with a clock inside it showing the same 4 PM. Now after an hour, the space craft returns to earth. The stationary clock will show 5 PM. I presume the clock in the space craft will also show 5 PM. Then how can we say moving clocks run slow. Forgive if i sound silly. I need clarity on this concept. Thanks in advance
