An athlete has learned enough physics to know that if he measures from the earth a time interval on a moving spacecraft, what he finds will be greater than what somebody on the spacecraft would measure. He therefore proposes to set a world record for the 100m dash by having his time taken by an observer on a moving spacecraft. Is this a good idea? My Answer: No, because the observer in the spacecraft would measure a longer time interval not a shorter time interval. Can anyone explain it further???
