I guess, point 4 in my letter to the editor of SST could have been worded better. Namely, I am not simply using ratios...the untold truth is that in the away component of t1), the earth has to travel 63,469,182.21m to give the appearance of having traveled the one second length of 53198115.45m... hence its relative speed will be slowed down to 44,589,190.99m/sec . Similar reckonings apply to the return segment...OF COURSE THE KEY TO VISUALIZING THIS IS WHETHER YOU PUT THE V(a) FIRST AND THEN TRAVELLING OVER IT OR WHETHER YOU HAVE YOUR V(a) AFTER YOUR ONE SECOND LENGTH, AS YOU SHOULD SO THAT YOUR V(a) IS STRETCHED AS LIGHT IS COMING ACROSS ITS GAP!
