Is time travel possible?
In September , cosmonaut Gennady Padalka arrived back on Earth for the last time. Although not exactly a plutonium-charged DeLorean , time travel is anything but fiction. Until the 20th century, time was believed to be completely immutable and time travel a scientific impossibility. In , Einstein revealed his ideas on special relativity, using this framework for his theory of general relativity a decade later. The most important being that time is elastic and dependent on speed, slowing down or speeding up depending on how fast an object—or person— is moving. In , four cesium beam atomic clocks flew around the world and were then compared to ground-based clocks.
Time travel is the concept of movement between certain points in time , analogous to movement between different points in space by an object or a person, typically using a hypothetical device known as a time machine. Time travel is a widely-recognized concept in philosophy and fiction. The idea of a time machine was popularized by H. Wells ' novel The Time Machine. It is uncertain if time travel to the past is physically possible. Forward time travel, outside the usual sense of the perception of time , is an extensively-observed phenomenon and well-understood within the framework of special relativity and general relativity. However, making one body advance or delay more than a few milliseconds compared to another body is not feasible with current technology.
All rights reserved. It's not quite Back to the Future, but a young Iranian inventor claims to have built a time machine that can predict a person's future with startling accuracy. Ali Razeqi, who is 27 and the "managing director of Iran's Center for Strategic Inventions," claims his device will print out a report detailing an individual's future after using complex algorithms to predict his or her fate. According to the Daily Telegraph , Razeqi told Iran's state-run Fars news agency that his device "easily fits into the size of a personal computer case and can predict details of the next years of the life of its users. It will not take you into the future, it will bring the future to you. Razeqi says Iran has decided to keep his prophetic time machine under wraps for now out of fear that "the Chinese will steal the idea and produce it in millions overnight. Iran's Deputy Minister of Science, Research, and Technology dismissed Razeqi's claims on Friday in an interview with Fars —a sign of just how much attention the story has received.
