In pheesics, the twin paradox is a thocht experiment in special relativity involvin identical twins, ane o whom maks a journey intae space in a heich-speed rocket an returns home tae find that the twin who remained on Yird haes aged mair. This result appears puzzlin acause each twin sees the ither twin as muivin, an sae, accordin tae an incorrect naive[1] application o time dilation an the principle o relativity, each should paradoxically find the ither tae hae aged mair slowly.
