Isn't this funny?

I can't imagine life without google and my google plus friends' posts, shares and comments. I have learned so much and been moved by the extraordinary kindnesses of strangers toward one another.

For you dear reader...
Dearest Book Lover,. Isn't it great to curl up with a good tome? These harsh winter months can be a great time to read a good story; to travel elsewhere through words. We've got authors to watch, reviews and reading recommendations, whether they be printed or e-published.

He shared a great question about time and relativity. Wonderful explanations too. Thank you +David Fillingham
 
Question About Relativity

I'm asking this question out of genuine ignorance. I am sure someone here can explain the answer ...

I've long understood that according to the special theory of relativity, nothing can travel through space faster than the speed of light in a vacuum.

Also, I've read of the thought-experiment of how relativistic time effects will enable an astronaut who travels near the speed of light to age just a few years when returning to an earth that will have aged by perhaps hundreds of years.

What I don't understand is...if that astronaut circles a star four light years away, and returns to earth, say 100 years later, and the astronaut has aged, say, two years, from the astronauts perspective, hasn't he traveled to and from a star four light-years away in a span of two years? Does not the astronaut measure his own velocity at well above the speed of light?

Thanks to anyone who can sort this out for me!

Are you interested in learning more about your DNA? If you have been tested and have the results in a file format (FASTA), Then The National Institute of Health has some useful tools.

Using my FASTA formatted MTDNA file, which I uploaded to the NIH BLAST database engine, I was able to view research articles relating to my MTDNA information.

Choose Human (if applicable) and upload your file...

The Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) finds regions of local similarity between sequences. The program compares nucleotide or protein sequences to sequence databases and calculates the statistical significance of matches. BLAST can be used to infer functional and evolutionary relationships between sequences as well as help identify members of gene families.

Story
Tagline
Writer, Technology Consultant, Speaker -- Please support the charity of your choice.
Introduction
Interested in: increasing and supporting women in STEM, technology and charities.  Complex problem solving is fun - especially involving disparate technologies!
 
When not reading (science/techo-spy fiction), I study foreign and programming languages.
 
I live in a multiverse  and enjoy learning more about biology, genetics, physics and exploring neuroscience--particularly  consciousness. Anthropology, sociology, pyschology are interesting also.  I am fascinated with ancient near/mid eastern history (1000-700 AD) & archaeology. .
 
Free time? I travel--usually not tourist areas, listen to ancient music and look at art-especially textiles/tiles. Enjoy playing harp, piano and violin.
 
I collect ancient Japanese and Aramaic sayings.
 
I write about everything, love writing fiction and enjoy exploring the connection between those who have gone before and those who come after.
Bragging rights
When I graduated--computer science--I was the only woman in my class. My first 'internet' was uucp and my computer an Altos 8086, of course one had to load the UNIX kernal first. :)
