I have a time machine and a space ship, I put you in a box with some instruments
and ask you what time it is. You decide to use the biggest relic of all from the big
bang, the black body radiation. You measure if and find it is not in the microwave
region as normal on Earth but it's in the form of X rays.
Question: Did I use my time machine to take you back to a time just a few thousand years
after the big bang, or did I use my space ship to move you at 99.9% of the speed of light
and have the microwaves blue shifted to X rays?
