The twin paradox

Nick from Science Asylum explains why the twin paradox is not a paradox. the paradoxes show up in our models and in our math, but they do not exist in the nature and the Universe is functioning perfectly even if we do not understand these physics paradoxes.

The twin paradox says that if one of the twins travels with the speed of light for a number of years and then returns home, the other twin will be much older. This is due to the fact that, when you travel close to the speed of light, the time slows down for you.
