Since few days, the time travel is in the headlines. The last time we talked about Time Travel was in 2011 when China decided to kind of ban it.
What is happening?
Exciting idea but nothing really happened
Nothing happened more than a new theory that is to be experimented. Ben Tippett, a mathematics and physics instructor at UBC’s Okanagan campus, recently published a study about the feasibility of time travel. Using math and physics, he has created a formula that describes a method for time travel.
Mathematically, may time travel is possible, but it is hard to imagine the consequences, and how the civilization would progress with time travel.
The logic of Time Travel
Can we be smart enough to invent the time machine, and to manage to use it without leaving any evidence?
We could view the past, but not travel to it
- As light and sounds from the past travels in all directions, and potentially bounce in some areas, it should be possible to capture them and restore pictures and sounds from the past.
- We cannot move to the past as the past don’t exist anymore.
We could travel to the future, but we cannot see it
- We can imagine several ways to travel to the future, because the future will exist: assisted hibernation, deep pace travel.
- Viewing the future seems impossible as the event did not happened yet.
Time Travel in Literacy and Cinema
The time travel was heavily explored in literacy, cinema and TV.
