If something, let's say, an electron or a person, travels at some speed close to the speed of light, time would slow down, right?

But would it be passing in slow motion or would it have a bigger amount of time to 'live'?

    $\begingroup$ "time would slow down, right?" - according to whom? Certainly not the person since, for them, it's all the other stuff that is moving while they're at rest. $\endgroup$ – Alfred Centauri Jun 23 '17 at 0:13

With respect to you, i.e, in your reference frame, you would be the same. You would not see length contraction or experience time dilation. However,say, from the frame of the earth, the people would see you at slow-mo.

From your perspective, time will be passing the same rate. But when you stop, you will find that a lot of time passed, so there is no slow motion from your perspective. And, STOP MARKING THIS AS A DUPLICATE FOR GOD SAKE FOR THE OTHERS

    $\begingroup$ Why should the same question be answered repeatedly on a website? It's redundant and makes no sense. $\endgroup$ – Hritik Narayan Jun 23 '17 at 6:40
