In deriving the length contraction formula, you used the fact that according to George, Gracie's clock is running slow. But couldn't we also say that from Gracie's perspective, George's clock is running slow, and so come to a different answer?
Since there is a limit to speed, namely c, is there a limit to how Lorentz contracted an object can be?
