the problem is that he couldn't hit anything either as his own bullets would head back in a fancy curve
after a long day on the battlefield his helmet would be real heavy with all the bullets collected
If the magnet is strong enough, it would be able to. However the EM field would be more extensive as well, so you'd see curvature earlier, so you're right in a sense.
The jackets are often made of a harder metal than lead (which is soft) to penetrate steel defenses.
you would see 20 years into the past exactly 10 years after the mirror is constructed.
The light from 10 years ago is already traveling.
Mirror is constructed.
10 year ago light is reflected back and takes another 10 years to travel to you
this is real.
the light from 10 years prior to the mirror is still on route to the position that the mirror will be at, even before the mirror exists.
the moment you construct the mirror, this ten year old light is reaching the mirror and getting reflected.
you will see 10 years into the past, immediately coming off of the mirror.
it will just take another 10 years to get back to you, making it 20 years into the past when your eye is receiving it.
No it wouldn't. At that scale relativity comes into play. It would still require > distance/c amount of time for the stick to move on the other body, assuming its relative position and rotation never changes to begin with.
are you fucking retarded?
if it takes light 10 years to reach the mirror, then that light leaves earth in that direction, regardless whether or not there's a fucking mirror. As the mirror gets completed, the light that has been traveling for ten years will have just reached it, meaning a ten year trip back home. the light that left earth ten years prior to the mirrors completion would return to earth ten years after its completion. letting you see ten years into the past. not twenty. but the science checks out.
also pls go
Communication would travel at the speed of sound through the stick, not instantaneously. Probably faster than speed of sound through air, but still much much slower than speed of ligh
at the moment of the light reaching your eye, it is 20 years in the past.
10 + 10 = 20
someone located at the mirror would see their reflection with your 10 year old reflection, though.
