Quantum Physics - Light, Space and Time

Summary: In this first part of a series of essays on quantum physics, I will explore topics on light, space, and time. According to relativity, it is said and proven that something with mass which approaches light-speed gradually gets smaller in the view of others, as it is mentioned that any moving object's (with mass) length decreases proportionately to its speed in the direction it was moving until it reaches zero at light-speed.
LIGHT

In the everyday sense of the word, it seems like a simple thing: but it is a subject for serious consideration. I am exploring here the role of light in relativity, not its nature. Light has always been a benchmark of the highest speed attainable - hence the term "light-speed" (however, as we will see later, it is possible to travel at speeds higher than this). According to relativity, it is said and proven that something with mass which approaches light-speed gradually gets smaller in the view of others, as it is mentioned that any moving object's (with mass) length decreases proportionately to its speed in the direction it was moving until it reaches zero at light-speed. Time, too, seemingly passes slower for the object (even with an atomic clock) until time freezes at light-speed.
