Lorentz Contraction

Tom Van Flandern
Year: 2003
Keywords: Lorentz contraction, lack of remote simultaneity

Lorentz contraction is not a change in the physical length of rods or meter sticks. Rather, it is an illusion introduced in special relativity by the lack of remote simultaneity. In Lorentzian relativity, elysium is entrained, so the need for a Lorentz contraction vanishes.
