Question Regarding Constant Acceleration in the Twin Paradox

  • Thread starter Thread starter Guest

Suppose you had two participants in a relativity experiment, one stationary
on Earth (let's call him "Terence" here), and another traveling in a rocket ship away from Earth (let's call her "Stella" here). I heard that if Stella was traveling at a constant accleration, then Terence would "observe" this acceleration gradually decrease to 0 as the ship approached the speed of light. Is this true? If so, what would be the mechanism behind it, or what would be an equation to describe it?

Thanks for any help!
