comment Helmholtz's “Ueber die Bewegungsgleichungen der Elektricität für ruhende leitende Körper” in English?
I'm surprised no one has translated it because Helmholtz's theory described in this paper was the major competitor to Maxwell's in the 19th century.

comment How do you determine who is moving “faster” in relativity?
@dmckee: Why don't you? With two observers, all you know is one number: relative speed.

This is essentially the Twin Paradox problem. Also, you really need a third observer to make the judgment.

Read Science at the Crossroads ch. 9 and let me know what you think.

comment Twin Paradox: Still a Paradox?
Dingle ultimately concluded that something must be wrong with the principles of SR. He admitted that given those principles, the twin paradox is not contradictory per se.

So, when the twins meet-up again, they are the same age? Is this an observational effect or something to do with the travelers innate natures changes?

The point you make is legitimate. See Herbert Dingle's Science at the Crossroads ch. 9.

Thanks. I added "cosmological timescale"/"Hubble time" back in.
