My guess is simple. Everything has some usefulness attached to it.
So whats the point of length contraction?
L = Lo*sqrt(1-v^2/c^2)
I don’t know but..
Since we cant get the velocity v as high as light speed then why not lower c.
Would it be possible to get a higher contracted length ratio using materials with a high refraction index?
I wonder. Could you lower the speed of light in the material enough and have some high speed particle for v traveling through it.
What could happen. Whats the use of length contraction?
