The Twin Paradox
A Twin Paradox is when one of the twins (of the paradox) travels to space near the speed of light but that twin’s other twin stays on Earth. After 20 years have passed that twin travels back to Earth and she has aged only 2 years while her twin has aged 20 years. The reason this is caused is because of Dilation of Time.
