(Theory of Relativity) While riding in a streetcar in Bern, Switzerland, Einstein realized that moving clocks might not run at the same rate as stationary clocks. He looked at a clock on a tower and realized that if the streetcar moved away from the clock at the speed of light, it would appear to him as if the clock had stopped. Describe a though experiment to illustrate his thinking.
