Because the earth is moving, from s's point of view, e will be generating considerable amounts of light as a result of this movement
Of course the earth is accelerating when it turns, so my example still holds. An observer observes an effect on the observed but the observed does not observe the effect.
Because the earth is moving [rotating], from s's point of view, e will be generating considerable amounts of light
Two charged particles, A & B, are moving at the same speed. According to commonly accepted physics dogma, both are generating Electromagnetic (EM) fields. But from particle A's perspective, particle B is stationary and cannot be generating an EM field and vice versa. How is this seemingly unresolvable paradox resolved in physics?
Thanks ... so in one frame of reference the EM field has triggered a fault in a missile launcher resulting in a nuclear holocaust and in the other it is just business as usual.
Come to think of it, is their such a thing as an Einstein "frame of reference" given that seemingly everything in the universe is being accelerated all the time? Earth turns, Solar System turns, Galaxy turns etc..
