That would be from the point of view of the non-moving frame though. Inside the moving frame, the temperature does not drop. You have it backwards. Just as time appears to slow down, from the point of view of the non-moving frame, it doesn't from the point of view of the moving frame--they don't see their actions taking inordinately longer to perform.The 1907 paper gives a formula that shows how the temperature of the “seen” “moving frame” drops based on relative “v”. You can calculate the temperature inside the “frame” with the formula.
Just another misapplication of the theory. You can't hold that against Einstein. This is difficult stuff.If a spaceship’s ambient temperature is consistently very low inside the cabin, then the humans inside the cabin “freeze to death”.
Not true.But since we are talking about an amateur’s thought experiment with “Bob and Ann”, the consequence of their thermometer drop, based on Einstein’s 1907 formula, would be that they would “freeze to death”.
