Suppose a driver has a car and a garage of equal proper length. The driver speeds toward the garage and a doorman at the garage is instructed to slam the door shut as soon as the back end of the car enters the garage. According to the doorman, “the car Lorentz contracted and easily fitted into the garage when I slammed the door.” According to the driver, “the garage Lorentz contracted and was too small for the car when I entered the garage.” Explain what really happens? Is the doorman’s statement correct? Is the driver’s statement correct?
