Ok, lets say that we are in a giant vaccuum, but we have a crapload of space. A crapload. And we get a really powerful spinning machine and a tone of tubing. Really powerful, lots of tubing. Then we get the tubing and attach it to the machine, and lets say we attach the an amount of tubing equal to [tex]\displaystyle{\frac{c}{600}}[/tex]. We then get the machine rotate at [tex]\displaystyle{\frac{600}{\pi}}[/tex] revolutions per second. At the outskirts of the machine, it would be rotating at 2 times the speed of light, according to classical physics. How would it really act? Would it form a spiral, as it got farther away and time dilated more? How would you figure out how fast the parts would really be moving?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
