### The Spaceship and RC Diagrams and Movies

The Spaceship Diagrams reveal the fact that the speed of light is an approach-departure speed and therefore Lightrays A and B will go past Spaceship's center-of-mass at c/186,000 mps only when Spacesip is not moving, e.g., Spaceship is at AS (absolute speed) and AV (absolute velocity) = 0 mps at AR (absolute rest) in the ARRF (absolute rest reference frame—Spaceship 1 Diagram and Spaceship 1 DV), will go past Spaceship's center-of-mass at c < 186,000 mps when Spaceship is moving at parallel to and in the same direction of motion as Lightrays A and B and with velocity v relative to the Spacepoints at which Lightrays A and B were emitted (Spaceship 2 Diagram and Spaceship 2 DV), and will go past Spaceship's center-of-mass at c > 186,000 mps when Spaceship is moving at v parallel to but opposite the direction of motion of Lighgtrays A and B.

NOTE: The DVs were created using Apple's iMovie program. They have been verified to open with Quicktime™ and Real Player™. When clicked, they will attempt to download to your computer. You will be asked which application you prefer to use to open and view the DVs.

The RC DVs (movies) show howitiz that the speed of light inside a reference frame such as Spaceship is measured incorrrectly when distorted rulers and clocks are used.

The RC Diagrams represent combinations of 2 Rulers and 2 Clocks, e.g., Ruler 1 which is an adjustable ruler/AR and Ruler 2 which is a non-adjustable ruler/NAR whose length will vary (shorten) inversely with accelerations and Clock 1 which is an adjustable clock/AC whose rate of ticking and timecount will not vary inversely with accelerations and Clock 2 which is a non-adjustable clock/NAC whose rate of ticking will vary (decrease/slow down) inversely with accelerations.
