thus quoth:
Starting with Paul Langevin in 1911, there have been numerous
explanations of this paradox, many based upon there being no
contradiction because there is no symmetry?only one twin has undergone
acceleration and deceleration, thus differentiating the two cases. Max
von Laue argued in 1913 that since the traveling twin must be in two
separate inertial frames, one on the way out and another on the way
back, this frame switch is the reason for the aging difference, not
the acceleration per se.[1] Explanations put forth by Albert Einstein
and Max Born invoked gravitational time dilation to explain the aging
as a direct effect of acceleration.[2]

The twin paradox has been verified experimentally by precise
measurements of atomic clocks flown in aircraft and satellites. For
example, gravitational time dilation and special relativity together
have been used to explain the Hafele?Keating experiment.[3][4]
