Sailors are always younger

Maybe this has been brought up in this forum before, but as a point to ponder ocean sailors age slower than their terra firma counterparts. Fun(?) factoid of special relativity.

The link runs quickly into the graphic shown below; watching the entire video series explains in plain language why this is so.

Re: Sailors are always younger

It seems that according to Einstein's theory of relativity, time slows as you move faster. Since sailors are always moving, perhaps time goes slower for them?
