Scientists in Australia PROVE time travel is POSSIBLE
The idea that time travel is possible has captured the interest of countless researchers for decades. There are some who firmly argue that time travel is in fact possible. A team of scientists has concluded that the grandfather paradox –which demonstrates how time travel is not possible— can be resolved.
A team of researchers from the University of Queensland, Australia, have simulated how time-travelling photons might behave, indicating that at least on a QUANTUM LEVE, the grandfather paradox –which demonstrates how time travel is not possible— can be resolved.
Using photons –single particles of light— researchers simulated quantum particles travelling to the past. After studying their behaviors, researchers revealed possible anomalous aspects of modern-day physics.
“The properties of quantum particles are ‘fuzzy’ or uncertain to start with, so this gives them enough wiggle room to avoid inconsistent time travel situations. Our study provides insights into where and how nature might behave differently from what our theories predict,” said co-author Professor Timothy Ralph.
Explaining the curious situation, the daily mail indicates:
“In the simulation, the researchers examined the behavior of a photon traveling through time and interacting with its older self. In their experiment, they made use of the closely related, fictitious, case where the photon travels through normal space-time and interacts with another photon that is stuck in a time-travelling loop through a wormhole, known as a closed timelike curve (CTC). Simulating the behavior of this second photon, they were able to study the behavior of the first – and the results show that consistent evolutions can be achieved when preparing the second photon in just the right way.”
When talking about the idea of time travel and whether or not it’s possible, scientists point to Albert Einstein and his well-tested theories of special and general relativity which according to many can prove mankind is able to travel through time.
In physics special relativity (SR) aka the special theory of relativity is a generally accepted and experimentally well-confirmed physical theory regarding the relationship between space and time.
This theory indicates that time can slow down or speed up depending on how fast you are moving, relative to another object.
The theory of general relativity indicates that it’s possible to travel back in time by following the so-called space-time path.
In 2012, Serge Haroche and colleague physicists David Wineland shared the Nobel Prize award as they demonstrated how “quantum weirdness” can exist at a subatomic micro-world level, but also on a MACRO level.
“The question of time travel features at the interface between two of our most successful yet incompatible physical theories – Einstein’s general relativity and quantum mechanics. Einstein’s theory describes the world at the very large scale of stars and galaxies, while quantum mechanics is an excellent description of the world at the very small scale of atoms and molecules,” said Martin Ringbauer, a PhD student at UQ’s School of Mathematics and Physics and a lead author of the paper.
But not everyone in the scientific community agrees that time travel is possible. In fact, in a documentary (below) released by the BBC, award-winning astrophysicist Stephen Hawking states that it is IMPOSSIBLE to go back in time.
