# Twins Paradox RIP: Time Dilation for Travel to the Stars

“The Twins Paradox is a fascinating subject and, more importantly, it represents a way to introduce an essential aspect of spacetime. Everyone is familiar with space and with time. But not everyone is as familiar with spacetime. The common perceptions of space and time applied to spacetime are contributing sources for the paradox. The correct understanding of the “Twins Paradox” is embedded in the character of spacetime. To fully resolve the paradox, this book provides an explanation of why only the traveling Twin experiences time dilation or warped time. For resolving the paradox, the title is Twins Paradox RIP, i.e., rest-in-peace.”
