This question already has an answer here:
I have been running this through my head for a few days and I understand I am probably missing something very simple here. If a wheel is spinning the outer edge will travel at a speed that is greater than the rotational speed of the center of the wheel as there is more distance to cover to keep up with the center. Should this same concept not apply to all speeds, including the speed of light. If the center is clocked at a rotation that equals the speed of light would the edge be clocked at a speed that is faster? I know this cannot be tested in a practical sense but is there a mathematical answer to this or have I, as I said earlier, missed something fundamental here?
