So tell me why the satellite clocks run faster by 38,000 nanoseconds per day. I can recall very clearly how scientists put a clock in a satellite and orbited it around the earth, and then told the world that it ran slower than an identical clock on earth, proving that there was a distance contraction, just like the theory of relativity showed. Why did that satellite clock run slower than a clock on earth, and the GPS clocks run faster?
