how would a tv trasmission look and sound like when received on earth comming
from a space ship travelling near the light speed?
and if the doppler effect was corrected, would the motion on the image be slower
or faster than what we would consider normal due to time dilatation?
how fast should the ship be for the refreshrate of the signal becomes too slow
like one cycle every 1 second, instead of the usual 60frames per second?
