What is the Twin Paradox?
If one twin travels out to space and the other one stays on earth, each of them will think the other one is moving, so they will claim that the other twin's clock is running slower than their own
Conclusion of the Paradox
Really the twin that feels the acceleration is the one moving away - so they accumulate less time (age less)
The Twin Paradox and Length Contradiction
- If you go on a trip to somewhere 25 light years away, 50 years will pass on earth
