**drwls**, Thursday, May 26, 2011 at 1:11amTime on the rocket goes more slowly, as seen by earth-based observer. The elapsed time on the rocket is lower by a factor sqrt[1-(v/c)^2] = sqrt(0.25) = 1/2

2^8 = 256 is the number of bacteria that are produced on earth during the time interval you are discussing.

The rocket's bacteria will have doubled half as many times, so there will be 2^4 = 16 bacteria
