If a person lives on the average 100 years in his rest frame, how long does he live in the earth frame if he spends all his life on a spaceship going at 60% of the speed of light.
As the Lorentz transformation suggests there will be time dilation for a moving object with respect to rest frame which is given by
Where , V is velocity of moving object and C is speed of light in vacuum i.e.
And is time in rest frame.
ATQ, 60 % of C i.e.
The person will live in the spaceship with respect to earth frame.

An object may be regarded to be at rest or in motion depending on the frame of reference chosen to view the object. Because of length contraction it would mean that the same rod may have two different lengths depending on the state of the observer. Is this true?HC Verma - Concepts of Physics Part 2
