There is a simple answer here. Consider two planets moving extremely rapidly past one another. Which one is suffering a length contraction?  Are both moving with regard to the Local Space Partition? Is only one moving at this breakneck speed?  Sorry Charlie, there's no length contraction evident here or anywhere else.  You might also consider the physics and mechanism that would lengthen the subject once speedy object as it slowed down.  What mechanism exactly would cause it to stretch out?  Time to get real, No?
