Apart from rushing trains and moving platforms, of course at relativistic speeds which we encounter every day, I wonder whether there is any practical use/ application where asynchronous clocks play some role.
Martin Spina
In reply to Klaus’ comment, I would guess that a current application of these concepts, is that cosmic phenomena need to be translated from Hubble Telescope perspective to a sidereal perspective (relative to distant stars) in efforts to map out how something would look with no relative motion.
