And shorter in time, and longer in time. It all makes sense, I promise, and is clear when you use the Lorentz transformation of coordinates of the events in question, enacted with a mechanical minkowski diagram, aka mechanical Lorentz transformation, aka spacetime globe.Support MinutePhysics on Patreon! http://www.patreon.com/minutephysicsLink to Patreon Supporters: http://www.minutephysics.com/supporters/MinutePhysics is on twitter - @minutephysicsAnd facebook - http://facebook.com/minutephysicsAnd Google+ (does anyone use this any more?) - http://bit.ly/qzEwc6Minute Physics provides an energetic and entertaining view of old and new problems in physics -- all in a minute!Created by Henry Reich
