Human Travels Through Time!
I knew the headline "Human Travels Through Time" would get your attention.
To make such a preposterous claim is no worse than a recent International Business Times article allegedly time travel is impossible.
And what such a declaration is doing on a Business website is equally preposterous, unless there happened to be a consortium of business people hoping they'd be the first to build a time machine.
"The world is flat." "Man can't fly."
Send a rocket ship to the moon? The smart phone?
Time travel is already big business. Thanks to H.G. Well's, The Time Machine, amazingly written in 1895-- when there wasn't even a car--time travel has been the subject of countless movies, novels, lectures and scientific papers.
More so, time travel is the greatest dream of science and sci-fi, just this side of aliens and immortality.
According to the article, Japanese physicists, led by Du Shengwang at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, have proven Einstein's claim that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light.
The scientists claim a single photon cannot travel faster than the speed of light in vacuum.
Well, good for them! And it proves nothing.
First off, we must dispel the notion that Einstein is not God, as apparently so many people believe.
Secondly, where do they get the notion that time travel is predicated on the speed of light?
Thirdly, I strongly suspect science gets many of its ideas from Hollywood, although they would never admit it and I can't prove it. DARPA is working on an "iron man," by the way.
At CERN, home of the LHC (Large Hadron Collider), At full power, trillions of protons will race around the LHC accelerator ring 11 245 times a second, traveling at 99.9999991% the speed of light.Continued on the next page
