Possible Duplicate: Time Dilation - How does it know which Frame of Reference to age slower? This has bugged me for years. According to the theory of relativity, the faster an object ...
The event horizon of a black hole is where gravity is such that not even light can escape. This is also the point I understand that according to Einstein time dilation will be infinite for a ...
As I understand special relativity, light travels at the same speed in all reference frames. What I fail to understand is why time dilation would occur in one reference frame, but not by an equal ...
What happens to speed and frequency of a light beam moving in transparent medium when observed from different inertial frame of reference?
Suppose a transparent medium where speed of light is $c/n$, an inertial frame of reference $K$ which is stationary relatively to the medium and an inertial frame of reference $K'$ which is moving ...
What are the mechanics of time dilation and length contraction? Going beyond the mathematical equations involving light and the "speed limit of the universe", what is observed is merely a phenomenon ...
Why is it that when you look in the mirror left and right directions appear flipped, but not the up and down?
Okay, I'm asking a question similar to this one here: Time Dilation - what happens when you bring the observers back together?. Specifically, I am curious about a specific angle on the second part of ...
One thing I know about black holes is that an object gets closer to the event horizon, gravitation time dilation make it move more slower from an outside perspective, so that it looks like it take an ...
