Time Dilation

About Time Dilation

Time dilation explains why two working clocks will report different times after different accelerations. For example, ISS astronauts return from missions having aged slightly less than had they remained on Earth, and GPS satellites work because they adjust for similar bending of spacetime to coordinate with systems on Earth.
