In the rod and hole paradox as described by Rindler (1961 Am. J. Phys. 29 365–6) ('length contraction paradox'), a rigid rod moves at high speed over a table towards a hole of the same size. A bystander expects the rod to fall into the hole, but a co-moving observer expects it to pass unhindered over the hole. According to the accepted solution as first described in that paper, the entire rod must fall somewhat into the hole and therefore cannot remain rigid when the hole moves underneath it… Expand
