Time travel has been a key component of science fiction for literally hundreds of years. In our reality, or should I say interpretation of it, is time travel actually possible? Kip Thorne, the most recent Nobel Laureate for physics certainly seems to think so. Thorne theorises that interstellar travel is possible via a wormhole. Thorne … Continue reading Time Travel Using Wormholes.
Alongside black holes and white holes, wormholes have held a position of wonder in real physics as well as science fiction. A wormhole is a theoretical cosmic object that connects two different points in space and time. As per Einstein, wormholes could theoretically connect two different universes. American physicist John Archibald Wheeler coined the term … Continue reading Wormholes Series : Intro
When going through the questions and comments of the recent Zodiac series, I found a lot of questions regarding the spacetime interval and realised I didn't go into it in any great detail in last years relativity series. Silly me! When I discussed the spacetime interval in the past, I explained it in the mathematical … Continue reading The Spacetime Interval.
On the 11th of February 2016, the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) announced that they had detected the first evidence of the existence of gravitational waves the previous September. At the time this was a massive triumph for the team that observed them and made headlines worldwide. So what are gravitational waves? In 1916, … Continue reading Gravitational Waves
