If space contracted then yes the length of the wood would contract. If by length of light you mean the number of wavelengths equivalent to the lean got of the wood,, then again that length would change.However, if you were next to the wood your ruler would also have contracted so you would never know anything had changed.Can't see the wood for the trees especially in a dark wood with no light!
If space contracted? what do you mean space contracted? what of space suppose to contract?
Quote from: TBIf space contracted? what do you mean space contracted? what of space suppose to contract?Do you accept that the Universe is expanding, to the extent that the space between galaxy groups is growing? If so, do you consider that this expansion involves the galaxy groups moving through space?
My piece of wood is 0.288 miles a second, My piece of string is 0.288 miles a second,My ''length'' of light is 0.288 miles a second
Quote from: TheBoxLight in a vacuum can never travel at 0.288 miles per second, when you measure it in your lab.I never said it could , but what does travel at 0.288 mile per second approximately is the Earth's rotation at 1035 mph at the equator. If the Earth was to rotate at the speed of light I am quite sure the obloid type shape of the Earth would become a ''flat'' disk. There would be a super-massive centripetal force. You mention light, I asked what of space contracts ? there is no recognised aether etc, it is not substance like, so what of space contracts? A bit crossed from the other thread but does this contract μ0?
