Question about Time Dilation..
I have a question about special relativity which was bothering me for a while now. I know that as one approaches the speed of light, time moves slower for him. So, if I start moving as fast as 99% of the speed of light and travel away from Earth for 1 day and come back, I'll see that (suppose) about 1 year has passed on Earth.
But my question is, if everything is relative, then how can we say that I was the one moving and Earth was the one staying? I mean if I consider myself as the center o the coordinate system, then I can say that Earth went on a travel with the speed of light and came back. So why is that the time slows down for me and not for the Earth? How do we distinguish between the moving and the static object according to relativity?
