    It is time-travel: of the clocks into the future. If you traveled very
    fast, your clock would slow down so much that you’d eventually literally
    have traveled into the future. For instance, after a year of such travel,
    you could wake up in, say, 2080.

  6. Only as a matter of gross oversimplification. It’s time dilation.

  7. Besides being quite educational, i found it quite nice how you had mannaged
    to explain everything to just the right detail, thank you.
