Hey, I am instructed to argue a theory in a 1,000 word essay (can exceed by 250 words). Anyways, I am going to write about the Twin Paradox. I myself am not good with this theory, I just "understood" it, well yesterday when I got a few good answers in the Special & General Relativity forum. Anyways, I have to have my abstract in tomorrow how does this sound for the intro (I have a week and two days to finish the actual paper, so I figure I'll do extensive research and my little understanding or the math/history behind it will improve as I research.)

Also, anyone know of any sites that show step by step mathematical equations etc... to explain and solve the twin paradox? I figure I'll make my own storyline up, I just want to make sure I account for the stuff used to solve this paradox.

If there are two life forms consisting of the same senescence inhabiting a life supporting mass with a constant inertial rate, I argue that if one life form were to leave traveling at close to the speed of light, and then turn back and travel back to the life supporting mass, the life form that did not travel will in fact have aged significantly more than that of which had traveled. This theory is commonly referred to as the "Twin Paradox," which was solved by Albert Einstein in 1911. For simplification matters I will create a story line similar to usual depictions of the "Twin Paradox." For the most part I will convey the logic behind this theory through words, however certain ineffable situations occur, which will be expressed through certain mathematical equations stated in Einstein's theory of Special Relativity, as well as other related theories.
