Re: one way faster, the opposite direction slower... on average the same
Unfortunately that's not how scientists see it. Must be a conspiracy.
Simply, for instance, you drive 200km at 100km/h, it takes 2h. Now if you drive 1h TIME at 50km/h and one hour at 150km/h, you've done 200km in 2 hours as well, but this is not what's happening here.
Here you drive a DISTANCE of 100km at 50 (which takes 2h already...) then 100km at 150.Imagine (it's theory) the wind is so strong it takes 3 times more to go one way, how do you keep the average time on the way back? Warp speed?
