Time to get back relativity – but that does bring up the sticky issue of time itself. Time should be the most reliable thing in the universe; after all it is absolute, right? I mean aside from the jokes (like the one on the left), time is defined by how long it takes to complete a task, and that can’t be changed by how fast you are going – can it?
Well, like many questions about this level of physics, the answer is Yes, but No. It doesn’t matter how fast you are travelling, everything takes the same amount of time it normally would… from your point of view.
Ah, it’s those never-to-be-sufficiently-cursed frames of reference again.
