Kevin here, this is mine. Slow Time Travel Edition This is a really time machine, sort of. Dr. Ronald Mallett's time machine is a spiral of incredibly powerful lasers, and he wishes to send a particle down in on the space, time altering ride into the past. Unfortunately, it hasn't worked out yet, and no visitors from the future have arrived. Isaac Newton thought time was like an arrow flying in a straight line. Albert Einstein, who ever thought of it like a river flowing around stars speeding up and slowing down. In fact, he heroes, the rate at which time passes depends on how fast you're going. So someone orbiting the earth at the speed of light we actually alter time space, and when they return to Earth, they will be in the future. His theory was right. Satellites orbiting the Earth actually have to alter their clocks to synchronize with Earth time. Because of this scientific fact, check out this clock example. Hold still on the clock ticks at a normal pace. Move the clock ticks take longer. Therefore, if you were in a ship aboard the green orb, your space time would be different from the time of the guy holding the clock. Unfortunately, we can't go nearly fast enough in spaceships to make a noticeable time change. But we could have a ride on the Black Hole Express spitting us at incredible speeds like this. Coffee spins. This bean would surely end up in a different time, but no one seems to have a black hole handy. So instead, Stephen Hawking has worms. Wormholes to be exact, these air tunnels connecting massive distances by bending space time like two holes on a piece of paper being folded together. Wormholes exist in a teeny tiny place called quantum foam, and we have no idea how to enlarge them enough for a human to pass through, let alone a Tartus. The grandfather paradox arises when you travel into the past and kill your grandfather there by never being born and never being able to travel into the past to kill your grandma. David Deutsch believes parallel universes exist, so you could go back in time to an alternate world without affecting the one you came from. In which case you could go back and shoot a dinosaur in the face and your grandpa will be fine. Finally, to check out an iconic time traveling show. Watch the new season premiere of Doctor Who?
