Time Travel Into the Future

Although most people consign time travel to the realm of science fiction or fantasy, time travel into the future is established scientific fact, and Einstein and numerous physicists have presented the world with irrefutable evidence not only mathematically but in practical experiments like the one conducted by Hafele and Keating in 1971. Two atomic clocks were put aboard a plane which traveled around the world. When the plane landed, the clocks aboard it were “behind” by 59 nanoseconds in comparison to those that had remained on the ground. This is because as the speed increases, the clocks aboard a plane, train, spacecraft or other vehicle “slow down” in relation to clocks that remain behind.

Just as the mechanism of a clock in a vehicle moves more slowly compared to one which is relatively stationary, the metabolism of a human body will slow relatively as well. The heart, the digestive organs, respiration, brain activity, and similar functions will slow in relation to those of the human beings left behind and the faster the speed, the greater the difference. In the well known Twin Paradox, one identical twin leaves earth aboard a spacecraft traveling at a speed close to the speed of light. He travels a distance of five light years, turns around and returns to earth to find that, while he has been away, fifty years have gone by. While he has aged only ten years, his identical twin is now fifty years older. If our traveler had traveled at a greater speed and/or been away longer, the results would be even more dramatic, e.g., he could return to find that his twin had died centuries or even millennia before.

In A Briefer History of Time, Stephen Hawking says flatly, “It is possible to travel to the future. That is, relativity shows that it is possible to create a time machine that will jump you forward in time. You step into the time machine, wait, step out, and find that much more time has passed on the earth than has passed for you. We do not have the technology today to do this, but it is just a matter of engineering; we know it can be done.”

Scientists at Fermilab have been able to get protons up to 99.999946 percent of the speed of light using their particle accelerator. In Time Travel in Einstein’s Universe: The Physical Possibilities of travel Through Time, the renowned physicist J. Richard Gott says “if we can accelerate protons to greater than 99.995 percent of the speed of light, we could also send off an astronaut at the same speed. It’s just a matter of cost.” That cost would, he goes on to say, be huge because a human being weighs about 40 octillion times as much as a proton. Sadly, it doesn’t appear to be in our immediate future.

Are there any other methods besides achieving speeds near the speed of light? Gott describes another method that would definitely work, but would be even more difficult. The first step is to “disassemble the planet Jupiter and use its material to construct around yourself an incredibly dense spherical shell needed for that mass to collapse to a black hole (for a Jupiter-mass shell, that is a bit bigger than 5.64 meters, roomy enough for you to sit inside).” Gott goes on to provide detailed instructions of the steps necessary to construct this machine. “The bits of mass in the shell would completely surround you, and the forces they exert on you would act in all different directions, canceling each other out exactly, leaving a net zero effect [so] no gravitational forces would affect you.” Inside, time would go by four times more slowly than outside the sphere. After what would be 50 years, the occupant would emerge to find that 200 years had gone by. This would work, but no person or government on earth has the resources to construct such a device.

Are there any other methods of travelling to the future? None that we know will work. A number of scientists theorize that wormholes could be used, but this is only a hypothesis. At this point there is no evidence that wormholes even exist.

Nevertheless, time travel continues to fascinate us. It has always been a part of legends, folk tales and myths, always a part of literature and fantasy. Perhaps its day will come sooner than we imagine. Science always surprises us.

Time Travel Into the Past

We know that time travel into the future is possible. Stephen Hawking says, “We do not have the technology today to do this, but it is just a matter of engineering; we know it can be done.” In Time Travel in Einstein’s Universe: The Physical Possibilities of travel Through Time, physicist J. Richard Gott says “if we can accelerate protons to greater than 99.995 percent of the speed of light, we could also send off an astronaut at the same speed. It’s just a matter of cost.”

The idea of time travel into the past is a far more exciting prospect though. Who hasn’t wanted to travel back into the past? Some would like to return to the past permanently to live in a simpler time and escape forever the stress, crime, pollution, and other unpleasant aspects of 21st century living. Some would like to be time tourists and actually be present in the crowd to hear the Gettysburg Address delivered by President Lincoln himself, to watch the pyramids being built, or to witness firsthand any number of historical events. Some would like to go back to do or undo things that affected their own lives.

There was a young lady called Bright
Who could travel far faster than light;
She set off one day,
In a relative way,
And returned home the previous night.
A.H. R. Buller

A cute limerick, but is it possible? Yes, says, Stephen Hawking, if one can travel faster than the speed of light, one can travel back in time in the same manner that one can travel into the future-by riding a really fast spaceship. The problem, he says, is that while we can accelerate particles to 99.99 percent of the speed of light, we have as yet been unable to exceed the speed of light. Nevertheless, Hawking says, travel to the past may be possible through the use of wormholes. The idea of wormholes is not new. In 1935, Einstein and Rosen wrote a paper saying that the Theory of Relativity allowed for the existence of wormholes and much has been written about them since, but as yet we have no conclusive evidence that they actually exist.

Some scientists theorize that time travel into the past may be possible through the use of cosmic strings, which are thin strands of high-density material left over from the early universe. Like wormholes, we don’t know if cosmic strings exist, but Gott says, “If cosmic strings exist, you could travel in a spaceship [at 99.9999999999 percent of the speed of light] and outrun a light beam by taking the shorter of two paths around a cosmic string. The door to time travel to the past begins to crack open.”

Doubts that travel into the past might become possible in the future are rooted not so much in terms of physics and technology, but in terms of intuition and what are perceived to be the use of logic or common sense. For example, if a man were to travel back in time and kill his grandfather before his grandfather ever had any children, then he never would have existed himself and therefore could have never traveled back into time. Furthermore, if time travel to the past becomes a reality at some point in the future, why has there never been any record of people from the future showing up in all of recorded history?

There are many similar questions and many possible answers, some simple and some very complicated. Many people are convinced that time travelers from the future have made trips into the past. There are two types of evidence. The first is artifacts left behind by time travelers. One example is a watch/ring found in December 2008 in a Chinese tomb that had been sealed for 400 years. The second type of evidence is photographs in which there are people who appear to be from another era. An example is the unknown woman in the 1928 Charlie Chaplin movie, “The Circus.” She is walking along in a background shot speaking into what appears to be a communications device. She is alone, and appears to be carrying on a conversation. These and similar examples can be found on the internet as well the opinions of people seeking to debunk the evidence. Who knows?

The only thing certain about time travel into the past is that people will always dream of it and always be fascinated by it.

The Ultimate Travel Guide For First Time Travelers

As common as air travel may have become now, there are still a lot of people all around the world who haven’t travelled by an airplane before. To people whose life spins around traveling this may seem strange but this is a fact we all need to accept. But if you’re one of those people who haven’t had the chance to travel by a plane yet, fret not- there is nothing to be embarrassed about you are not alone. And if you’re planning on getting out there and experiencing air travel then this article is the only thing you need to read to have the time of your life!

1. Research Before Travel:
Since you won’t have much experience in the ways of the airfare make sure that you do loads of research. Ask friends about their travel experiences, browse through the internet and try to get yourself a good travel agent. Because travelling is so much greater than you might think and there are many small details that one needs to consider before travel.

2. Establish A Budget:
This is literally the most important thing you need to do to make your trip a successful one. While you set the amount of money that you are willing to spend for your trip or vacation, make sure that the amounts that you assign have loads of buffer. This means that you should consider emergencies while planning your budget and also calculate the maximum you are willing to spend on something. This will ensure that you end up spending less than your expectations.

3. Get Vaccinations:
Many people usually get vaccinated when they travel internationally, however it is also important you do the same for national travels. This way you’ll prevent yourself from getting any undesired and unnecessary diseases when you travel. Think about it and save yourself the trouble of getting sick by taking care of vaccinations beforehand.

4. Avoid Motion Sickness:
If you’re someone who is prone to motion sickness or other such problems when you travel by road than it is highly likely that you will be affected when you travel by air. So as a precautionary measure make sure you take anti-emetic medicines before you start your travel to avoid discomfort.

5. Keep Important Things Handy:
Stuff like your passport and ticket will be required frequently and you need to keep it someplace where you can readily take it out and where it won’t be lost. Also make sure you have some extra cash with you at all time (keep it in your socks). Just in case you lose your stuff you won’t have a problem travelling around.

Travelling can be hard for even the most seasoned travelers and if you’re someone who’s travelling for the first time then you probably don’t know what you’re in for. So keep the above mentioned things in mind and your travel experience will turn out great. Make your first time travel the best!
