On the Voyager Weekly Reports site, the velocity below is noted.
Velocity Relative to Earth (Km/sec) 24.914
Does this mean that Voyager 2 is traveling at 8% the speed of light? (25k/300k m/s)
And more interestingly, what relativistic effects does this induce?
- Is Voyager 2 physically "longer" than it used to be?
- Is the clock on Voyager 2 always getting out of sync?
