* Some people
might not get just how this can be, and so
here's a simple explanation: Imagine two objects,
A and B, receding from each other rectilinearly at
uniform velocity; now send a third object, C, from
A toward B at a rate of acceleration high enough
to ensure that C eventually will arrive at B. Then
during its trip from A to B, the single object C
will be accelerating with respect to A and
simultaneously decelerating with respect
to B.
