    Default Time machine being built!

    [YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRWwI61so5Q"]First time machine[/YOUTUBE]

    The idea is by firing a particle through a cone shaped network of lasers, so that the particle speeds up (from the observers point of view) and goes faster than the speed of light from the observers point of view, dissappearing from sight. It is theorised that the particle will travel back in time to an earlier moment of when the time machine was active. And it is thinkable that codes could be send back through time by means of an array of dechiparable particles.

    There is a flaw however with the theory in my opinion. I think it's unlikely that it is possible to send particles back in time this way, and ever more likely that time slows down to zero from the observers point of view, effectively locking the particle inside the loop. And the more particles they will send, the more particles will build up appearing stuck in the vortex.

    However from the particles point of view, the particle will go through the spiral at the speed of light and leaves/dissappates at the end as if no time distortion happened. That time distortion, in my opinion, will probably cause for some really cool looking light effects, but it probably won't break zero time.

    Still it's an interesting experiment, because it will be the first time we would be able to test as the observer in Einstein's theory at speeds of light for the first time in history.

    Do you think the idea has actual merit, or do you think it's a fairytale dream, like I think it is?

    I was under the impression the energy needed to warp space-time like that was many many times that of what we produce globally.

    Not if we just bend light particles only. That's the interesting beauty of the experiment.

    If it did work, that could change a lot. Assuming our future selves where nice enough to send us back some info that could help us skip some years of technological development.

    I'm under the impression time travel is only possible ahead not backward.

    This is really interesting.


    Btw, wormholes exist all around us..but in microscopic scale..the trick would be to make one big enough for us to go through. Wormholes can not only connect different parts of this universe, but other parallel (and not parallel) universes as well. So by using a wormhole we will not only have the ability to go to a different place in our universe faster than light, but also to other universes and times.

    Aleksei... If by chance you get the only working TARDIS in the world, you would take me with you, wouldn't you? I'd be a right good companion too.
    Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.
