    What do you mean by 'solving' it?
    You just should accept, that depending on their individual history one of the twins may be biologically older than other.

    The twin paradox is covered in most introductory textbooks, where the reasons it's not actually a true paradox are discussed.

    The challenge we face is to get the internet posting community, and the public at large to realize this..
