Benefits of Relativity

4 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I mean this as a legitimate question; I'm no trying to start an argument. What have been the practical (non-theoretical) effects, of  Relativity Theory (Special or General), i.e. are lines shorter at the supermarket; do we have better gas mileage; are airline schedules more reliable?

Whether they are or whether they're not, I doubt it was because of any application of relativistic thinking (in the sense I take to be yours). But then, I'd also doubt it had anything to do with anyone's reading of Shakespeare either. What of it?

TGL is still here! Last time I looked it was a page that could not be accessed.

Maybe it's time for a revival? :cool:

Why should accurate theoretical constructs entail shorter lines at the supermarket? :unsure:
