## Main Question or Discussion Point

Sorry for the lame question, but I was wondering if someone could help answer the following.

I have two synchronised clocks which I place on two different space ships which then accelerate away from me at the same rate and time until they reach a given speed.

Ship A then slows down to be at rest again wrt to me again in time t and stops his clock. Ship b slows down until he is at rest wrt to me again but in time 2t (twice as long) and then stops his clock.

If they then both return their clocks to me would the same time have passed on both clocks?
