    Mathematical curiosity
    If one person spent one year in one spaceand only one minute passed in another,
    How many days passed in one Second?

    Purpose of use
    I am 16 years old and my dad is 53 years old. Suppose he was in a rocket and orbiting around the Sun at the speed c-1 m/s ( only one m/s less then the speed of light). My question is : for how long would he need to travel if he was going at speed of c-1 m/s so that both of us would be same age when he comes back home to Earth.

    Purpose of use
    Comparing results of calculations for relative time dilation as experienced on the ISS over various time periods. If anyone is wondering the ISS orbits ~ 7.6604774 km/s, and there are ~ 2592000 seconds in 30 days. According to all this Scott Kelly experienced a time dilation of ~0.01 seconds over the course of his 1 year stay on the ISS compared to us earthbound humans.

    Purpose of use
    I like physics
    My boss asked me to do the work of 5 people. I was just wondered how close to the speed of light I would have to get to make that happen.

    Purpose of use
    I'm a mathematician writing a fiction novel that motivates certain mathematical concepts. I took a course in special relativity in college, but forgot the formula for calculating the time differential experienced by the traveler relative to the observer. Thanks for posting this calculator!
