Scientists to invent time machine in near future (you heard it here First!)
Pravda (Trust but Verify) ^ | 11/04/2005 | Maria Gousseva

Posted on 11/04/2005 10:00:43 AM PST by Red Badger

The corridor of time does exist, but such a tour is trillion times riskier than a cruise in a basin with holes about the Pacific

A student from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology decided to organize a party and invited guests from the future, those who travel in time, to it. Guests may come in casual wear but must necessarily present evidences proving that they are not impostors. These may be medicines to cure AIDS or cancer, cold synthesis reactor or a thermonuclear reactor and things like this. Black hole

Modern science cannot give a definition of time. What is more, it cannot also prove that traveling in time is impossible. Anyone who goes for such a tour would inevitably grow older during the cruise according to the universal law of entropy growth. This is not a joke that meeting a grandchild of yours is quite possible according to the modern physics canons.

How can a human build a time machine? The recent sensational discoveries in the black holes sphere offers majority of opportunities for this purpose. Many of the discoveries have already won Nobel Prizes. Black holes are the vanguard of science, but it is not correct to believe that the existence of black holes is proved once and for all. Physics laws are symmetrical: if there is a black hole in which everything may drop but nothing can burst out from it, there must necessarily be a white hole into which nothing can fall but everything gets out of it. In other words, if one jumps into a black hole in one place he may jump out of a white hole in some other place. Does it sound crazy? According to Einstein's theory of relativity, there are solutions of this type. They are very instable, and a corridor from a black to a white hole may get closed because of slightest perturbations. This corridor does exist, but such a tour is trillion times riskier than a cruise in a basin with holes about the Pacific. Any physical body may be crushed in the center of a black hole.

The Director of Sternberg Astronomy Institute, the Russian Academy of Sciences, Anatoly Cherepaschuk, does not think the issue of traveling in time is too fantastic. On his way to the center of a black hole an astronaut will see his future and another universe disposed to our universe in the future. The astronaut would have to move quicker than the light speed to get into this universe some other way, which is impossible. Unfortunately, the astronaut will not be able to get back and tell what he saw in the future. He will not even go down in historical chronicles; outside spectators will always treat him as standing not further than the black hole verge.

Recently, some encouraging theories were developed to prove that some objects having no horizon of events exist in the powerful gravitational field; this allows traveling there and back in a time machine. American Kip Thorne and a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Igor Novikov, working in the west are connected with calculation of such objects. These objects are called mole burrows or space-time tunnels. Mole furrows are built of exotic vacuum-like material with negative pressure. In the tunnels, time goes back with respect to the outside space. Astronomers of the world dream of finding these mole furrows in the universe with the help of telescopes.

Many fiction authors described traveling into the past where people found the present-day world changed after the voyage because of their doings in the past. But physics theories state that these actions cannot be fulfilled with the help of a time machine: not only the past has an effect upon the future, but the future also influences the past. The cause-effect relations are very stable, and all events happen in such a way that they cannot be changed.

If they invented a Time Machine, would they come back here?.......

If time travel was possible, where are all the time travellers from the future? They would be everywhere.

All eternity stretches before us. And in all eternity so one has invented a time machine and come back to tell us about it.

Make me think that a time machine is not feasible.

Nah, there's probably certain periods in history that are more popular than others. Everyone would want to go back to the birth of Christ; no one would want to go back to the late 1970's.

Well, if a time traveller came from the future, he'd probably do something to change history. Get a bunch of time travellers going back in time, and eventually, one of them will change history so that the time machine isn't invented in the future. Then on the alternate time line, time machines are probably invented again, only to be not invented as there is further time travel and screwing with the time line.

If time travel was possible, the inventor would not risk a backward journey. One small misstep and the entire "present" that he left could disappear........

Just to be hypothetical . . . what if the future only exists when we get there. So the time travel can only go into the past.

Sounds weird, but think of it this way. With some video games, even when you reach level 2, you can still play level 1 . . . but not level 3 until you achieve something. Maybe that's the way it will be with time travel . . . the past is level 1, the present level 2, and the future level 3. You can't actually get to the future until it naturally occurs and becomes the present.

I've always believed that you could not go back further in time than the day the time machine was invented.

Therefore, since there are no 'time' machines, there can be no 'travelers'.

Modern science cannot give a definition of time.

Time n A nonspatial continuum in which events occur in apparently irreversible succession from the past through the present to the future

When does the Future begin? At what point is the Past passed? Today is yesterday's future and tomorrow's past. One second is gone and another is yet to be. Reality is only now, and it's over............

Hmmm. Late 1970's . . . after the creation of birth control pills but before the onset of HIV/AIDS. May be a sad statement on humanity, but the late 1970's might be a more popular destination than the birth of Christ.

This _had_ to be a bad translation.

In other news, Soviet science has determined that today's second hand smoke can kill children in the future and in the past.:-)
