Answers to Questions

What is the time dilation formula?

Calculation involves Lorentz factor and is calculated with this formula:

A person (A) voyaging during 1 hour at 99% of the speed of light will appear as a 7 hours-long trip for a stationary person (B).

How does clock measures work?

According to the theory of relativity of Albert Einstein, time is defined in each frame of reference. You can then associate a clock, and deduce the time changes (time dilation) for an observer outside of the clock frame of reference, which will see a clock moving with a tick slower than a stationary clock.
