MessageToEagle.com - Is it really possible to travel faster than light?
According to Einstein, the speed of light is the ultimate speed limit in the universe
but a team of applied mathematicians at University of Adelaide, have extended Einstein's theory of special
relativity to work beyond this limit.
Albert Einstein proposed his famous theory in 1905 and explained how motion and speed is always relative to
the observer's frame of reference. The theory connects measurements of the same physical incident viewed from these
different points in a way that depends on the relative velocity of the two observers.
Professor Jim Hill and Dr Barry Cox in the University's School of Mathematical Sciences say we can travel faster than light.
"Since the introduction of special relativity there has been much speculation as to whether or not it might be possible
to travel faster than the speed of light, noting that there is no substantial evidence to suggest that this is presently
feasible with any existing transportation mechanisms," said Professor Hill.
"About this time last year, experiments at CERN, the European centre for particle physics in Switzerland, suggested that
perhaps neutrinos could be accelerated just a very small amount faster than the speed of light; at this point we started
to think about how to deal with the issues from both a mathematical and physical perspective.
CERN Faster Than Light - Is Time Travel Possible?
"Questions have since been raised over the experimental results but we were already well on our way to successfully
formulating a theory of special relativity, applicable to relative velocities in excess of the speed of light.
"Our approach is a natural and logical extension of the Einstein Theory of Special Relativity, and produces anticipated
formulae without the need for imaginary numbers or complicated physics."
Their formulas extend special relativity to a situation where the relative velocity
can be infinite, and can be used to describe motion at speeds faster than light.
"We are mathematicians, not physicists, so we've approached this problem from a theoretical mathematical perspective,"
said Dr Cox. "Should it, however, be proven that motion faster than light is possible, then that would be game changing.
"Our paper doesn't try and explain how this could be achieved, just how equations of motion might operate in such regimes."
Physicists Challenge Validity Of Big Bang Theory
We all know that the Big Bang theory is an effort to explain what happened at the very beginning of our universe.
However, Australian team of theoretical physicists at the University of Melbourne and RMIT University say that it's time to change our understanding of this process.
Space-Time Crystal Computer That Can Outlive Even The Universe Itself!
It may seem strange to think something can survive even the death of the Universe, but that could actually be possible as a result of the laws of quantum physics.
Scientists are now suggesting a new blueprint for a device, known as a time crystal, that can theoretically continue to function as a
