Physicist Believes He Can Create Time Travel

from the sure-you-can... dept

Apparently, a pyhsicist at UConn believes he’s figured out the secret of time travel. While there are plenty of people who think he’s nuts, he’s pretty sure that it’s possible. There’s a great quote in there where he says, “I would think I was a crackpot, too, if there weren’t other colleagues I knew who were working on it.” He’s hoping to test out his theories by sending a neutron through time. Sending something larger than that, such as a person, is a much more difficult problem. However, he says that if his theories are correct, then it becomes just an “engineering problem” to figure out how to send people through time. Thanks to GMSV for finding this one.
