Q39.2 An ellipsoid. The dimension in the direction of motion would be measured to be scrunched in. Q39.3 No. The principle of relativity implies that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light in a vacuum , which is 300 Mm/s. The electron would emit light in a conical shock wave of Cerenkov radiation. Q39.4 The clock in orbit runs slower. No, they are not synchronized. Although they both tick at the same rate after return, a time
