I’m a starter. Asking a frequent question.
I know what is time dilation. But i can’t understand it completely. Why is a moving object clocks less time than a constant one. What is causing this time dilation. Irrespective of the speed of an object should the time be same for any relative object?
Say if one travels at the speed of light to the nearest star Proxima. It takes 8.6 light years reach and return back to earth. So the time travelled by the person is 8.6 years and the earth should have aged only 8.6 years. Where does this time dilation happen and why does it happen. Please shed more light on my confusion.
