thank you very much, however out of your answer a long existing question was brought back to life.when you say lenght will be contracted you refer to the ship right? Is it however only contracted in lenght?
I'm having trouble understanding what the speed limit means because as far as i understand it works like this: as you speed up time slows down on board. Thus if you measure speed by distance moved / time than doesnt this allow you to override the speed of light?
Since the distance shrinks for me at lightspeed is it safe to say it's the universe itself that shrinks in respect to my speed? So not just the space between me and the destination.
- since you explain it in this fashion do you believe it's possible to go beyond light speed?
while accelerating all thats required for the humans well being aside from radiation protection is a low enough acceleration so that he doesnt get too much G to handle.
even though mass increases in our equations when we speed up this doesnt seem to affect any humans inside the vehicle at all. doesnt this mean we have to clarify this mass increase more clearly than we currently do?
Refraction of local motions creates length contraction.
