Technically speaking, if you were to live at the top of a mountain, you`d also grow older slower than your friend at the bottom of the mountain. By a tiny tiny tiny amount. :D
Back to fission bombs: the other hard part about making a fission bomb is creating or isolating enough of the particular isotopes of uranium and plutonium required. Most naturally occuring uranium is the wrong isotope, and plutonium is the wrong isotope and very rare anyways.
I am aware I misspelled "nuclei." I suxx0r.
My question is, if one were to travel at the true speed of light, and time were to supposedly stop, then it should be impossible for actual light to reach the speed of light. I mean, if time stopped, you could move an infinite amount of distance in zero time, thus achieving an infinite speed. In fact, moving ANY distance whatsoever while time is stopped would equal infinite speed (divide one mile by zero time, the only explanation of the result would be that it simply transported there instantly, meaning infinite speed.)
But, light isn`t instantaneous. If it were, we could see stars disappear the second they die, and not thousands of years after their deaths.
I think one of the people said that flashing a light from a train moving 100 MPH wouldn`t increase the speed of the rays of light because the speed of light mutates the variables for speed (distance and time).
My head hurts... lol... Physics is a very interesting topic.
I`m sorry; I meant: "...you`re an idiot."
"For me there`s a lot more to the equation than E = mc2."
Nice attitude, and eloquently put, Voltaire...
Of course it’s all theoretical considering that as an object approaches the speed of light, it’s mass expands infinitely meaning that no mater how much thrust is applied, it will never be enough to propel the object to true light speed. I like to think of the speed of light as natures little speed limit. However, it has been shown that time slows down slightly even at sonic and subsonic speeds. But this is all special relativity. E=mc2 is more of an energy conversion formula. It predicts energy the yield of mater. Something that was instrumental in the creation of the A-bomb. Anywho, this was a cool post since I have a hard time explaining the theories to people who aren’t all that into physics.
However, back when Einstein first published this theory, no one had ever made the connection between matter (this paperweight on my desk) to enery (unleashing this paperweight`s energy will kick major ass).
He was the first.
