**Count Iblis**, Wednesday, April 30, 2008 at 12:00pmThe so-called space-time interval between the two events, defined as:

S^2 = c^2 [difference in time]^2 - [spatial distance]^2

is always the same for all observers.

In this case S^2 = 0. This means that the time and distance that other observers see between the two events will be related according to:

distance = c times time difference

So, different times and different places is possible provided the above relation is satisfied.
