    Time/space contraction, how does it apply here*:?It can't*just hold true in speculated*incidence clearly it would have
    *to hold true as a*component*of space/time itself.*

    Also when space contracts it not only contracts in one directions, but must contract simultaneously in 3

    Relative spatial contraction occurs along the line of movement. Remember that contraction and time dilation are measured by an external observer in a different frame of reference.
