Now all GPS relies on our knowledge of the effect on time of speed and gravity. Einstein was really pretty impressive.
Can someone explain how time dilation works. I know why but how.
Did one of them become old and tired after 23 years of waiting while the others were still young after just a couple of hours?
Would this be true for three regular old, battery operated kitchen clocks as well?
Question: if atomic clocks are measuring the vibrations of Cesium atoms - to a degree (second) arbitrarily set by man, how does time effect the measurement of time as indicated by the atomic clocks? Is it just the changes in velocity and gravity irrespective of time?
In my mind, I envision them as old, skinny white guys wearing big Flavor Flav style clocks around their necks.
