Hehehehe. Each twin "claims" that the other's clock is moving slower than his (reciprocal time dilation). But each twin is not correct. Only the earth twin is correct. The space twin is just flat WRONG.
Oh my god this is so tragic to watch. You really are oblivious to just how clueless you are aren't you.
If each were right, then each would be younger than the other when reunited.
No, they really wouldn't. It entirely depends on which one changes frames. You could start them off in any frame you like and the results would never change, the one that accelerates most (not directly because they accelerate but because they're the ones who move into a frame in which they were previously time dilated and length contracted) is the one whose watch is behind in the end.
If there were no time dilation, one way or the other, then they would be the same age.
Obviously. There's also no difference in their age if they accelerate away from Earth at the same rate and then accelerate back again, although less time would have passed for them than for a third one who stayed on Earth. The triplet paradox. It's all about which one changes frames, they are the younger one in the end and it in no way suggests any kind of preferred frame.
But one actually IS younger than the other. That's not "reciprocal," pal.
One IS younger if one DOES change frames while the other DOESN'T, DUMB DUMB.
Heh, your animated ramblings are, in their own way, quite precious.
Your pathetic attempts to save face while you're being completely demolished are what's truly precious, dumb dumb.
OK, let's take this slow. Assume SR applies, now what?
1. The "stationary" Naval base clock would predict that the clocks on both planes are running slower than his, by an equal amount (since they are travelling away from him at the same speed--assume it's 500 mph). Is this what happened? Hell no.
If both planes are moving at the same velocity relative to the navel base then yes, while they're moving at this same relative velocity both clocks will be equally slowed from the frame of the navel base.
2. The eastbound plane would predict that both other clocks have slowed relative to his, with the westbound clock slowing twice at much (since it is receding from from him at twice the rate--1000 mph instead of only 500 mph). Is this what actually happened? Hell no.
No. Moving at twice the relative velocity does not produce twice the time dilation dumb dumb.
3. The westbound plane would say the opposite of the eastbound plane. It this what actually happened? Hell, no.
The westbound plane would see the east bound plane's watch slowed by the same amount that the eastbound plane sees that the westbound plane's watch is slowed. Once they're back at the base both planes watches will say the same time and be behind the watches of the navel base.
What did happen was that eastbound plane's clock recorded the least elapsed time, the naval station's clock showed more elapsed time, and the westbound clock showed the most elapsed time of all three.
If that's true then they need to use more reliable clocks. If this is shown to be genuine then it would be interesting, sounds like bollocks though.
How can that be explained?
Easy, just see how they are moving with respect to the preferred frame (the eci), rather than how they are moving with respect to each other.
ECI? Earth centric something? Oh they might have picked up frame dragging effects because they were going in different directions relative to the Earths direction of rotation. I'm not sure frame dragging would be anywhere near strong enough to detect though. That's part of GR, it wouldn't work in 0-G.
