Skip to comments.New Israeli Lab Seeks to Punch a Hole in Spacetime, Literally

Imagine that something is happening before your eyes, but you cant see it not because you have eye trouble or because its a microscopic event, but because of something like Harry Potters invisibility cloak. Two years ago, researchers from Cornell University made that fantasy come true, on a tiny scale. They not only hid the existence of a brief event the movement of a light ray from one point to another but also the fact that it had been hidden.
One of the lead researchers on that study, Moti Friedman, is now setting up his own physics lab at Bar-Ilan University and looking for students. He seems unlikely to have trouble finding them. The study he published in the leading journal Nature in January 2012 roused great interest in the scientific community, while also setting the popular imagination on fire at least among fans of physics and science fiction. Friedman, 35, managed to manipulate light to create a hole in time that hid the rays movement from point to point, a phenomenon known as time cloaking. Events taking place within this hole cant be sensed in any way.
"When we do spatial cloaking, we cause the light to circumvent an object instead of striking it, he said. But that isnt enough. You also have to put everything back as it was to create the cloaking ... Its the same thing with time. When I open a hole in time, I push part of the light forward and part of the light backward in time, and then close the hole, he explained.
Now, in his new lab, he hopes to increase the duration of the hole by a factor of 10,000.

Israeli physicist Moti Friedman is opening a lab at Bar-Ilan University where he will expand on his work making light disappear from time and space.
He's talking cloaking device.
Maybe we can somehow beat the Klingons at getting the cloaking device before they do,
Your cloaking device is ready.
I’d have to see it to believe it.
Maybe he can send the Moslems back to year 700 where they’d be so much more comfortable?
Why 700? Why not 5000? Sometime right before...erm... a flood.
Get Thor on the Valkerie phone, tell him to bring his hammer too.
The last time someone tried this (allegedly- The Philadelphia Experiment), it didn’t end well.
I wish he would figure out how to extricate the Persians & then zap the crap out of the Ayatollah & his minions instead. Not to mention Hamas. That would be far more beneficial to mankind.
We have a winner!
Sorry the whole point is that you can't see it. :)
Can you move forward and backward in spacetime...whatever that is?
And if the universe IS a balloon?
This guy already beat them to it.
Maybe he can send the Moslems back to year 700 where theyd be so much more comfortable?
heck send them to an alternate world where dinosaurs still walk the earth, The Dinos need food you see...
you bet I stole that pic
You wanna poison the nice pretty dinosaurs ?
Or maybe a volcano can help get rid of the problem?
Aha! Now it works.
(finding your comments.)
2) Will we finally find the Rose Law firm billing records, or who hired Livingston for the Clintons?
3) Does Jim Thompson know about this? Cheers!
