New research says that Time Travel is mathematically possible
New Research says that Time Travel is mathematically possible. We all have fantasized about Time Travel in some point in our life . As we grow up, we came to know that it is only a bizarre fiction . Yet , some researchers still believe that it could be possible.
It is a mathematical model created by a mathematics and physics instructor at UBC’s Okanagan campus named Ben Tippett. Bin tippet is expert in Einstien’s Theory of General Relativity , black holes and loves science fiction. He has came up with a solution which can let us swing in space and time .
Tipett says “People think of time travel as something as fiction,” says Tippett. “And we tend to think it’s not possible because we don’t actually do it. But, mathematically, it is possible.
” From the days of Sir “HG Wells” who were the first to purpose idea of Time Travel as well as the Time Machine, People have fantasized about time travel and now Science Fiction shows like “Doctor Who” are keeping up with the legacy of the one of the greatest science fiction writers in history.
Ben Tipett further adds that while time travel is mathematically feasible. But, we still need a special type of matter called “exotic matter” to bend space and time in these unthinkable ways In physics, exotic matter is matter that somehow deviates from normal matter and has “exotic” properties. A more broad definition of exotic matter is any kind of non-baryonic matter that is not made of baryons, the subatomic particles, such as protons and neutrons, of which ordinary matter is composed. Exotic mass has been considered a colloquial term for matters such as dark matter, negative mass, or complex mass.
Many believe it to be hypothetical but now recently physicists have created “negative mass” . For more info on negative mass , click here.
Tippett created a mathematical model which he named Traversable Acausal Retrograde Domain in Space-time (TARDIS). Most of you may have giggled after hearing “TARDIS”. Because,it is same name which is used for time machine in “Doctor Who“. This clearly show his love for Science Fiction. He describes it as a bubble of space-time geometry which carries its contents backward and forwards through space and time as it tours a large circular path. The bubble moves through space-time at speeds greater than the speed of light at times. It allows it to move backward in time.
He further quoted “”Studying space-time is both fascinating and problematic. And it’s also a fun way to use math and physics,” says Tippett. “Experts in my field have been exploring the possibility of mathematical time machines since 1949. And my research presents a new method for doing it.
The research could be big breakthrough in space-time physics if we were able to apply the model in few decades in future .
