- is it really possible ?!

Release Summary: Time-travel, for long a favorite subject of science
fiction, is currently emerging as a serious prospect. Some top-flight
scientist in the USA and Europe are at work to send subatomic
particles back in time, encouraged by Einsteins theories which
- so far - have proved remarkably accurate in other predictions.

travel has been around in science fiction stories fuelled by the
imaginative story of THE TIME MACHINE by H.G. Wells in 1895. Indeed,
what a splendid and exciting mode of travel would be to go back
to the past or forward to the future at will. In an attempt to offer
an explanation, the author postulated time as the fouth dimension
- strangely preceeding the ideas of Einstein.
scientifically analysing such concepts as time, space, velocity,
acceleration and gravity, Einstein has arrived at the view that
time and space can not be considered in isolation. He introduced
the concept of 'space-time' and has shown that
it is not necessarily a straight-line entity, but can be regarded
as curved in the presence of solid bodies, thus leading to an explanation
of gravity. Since Einstein, many of his theories and predictions
proved correct as shown by repeated laboratory experiments.
curvature of space-time is an intriguing concept, as it seems to
suggest that if it could be made to curve into itself, then time
itself would flow backwards, as further explained at http://www.newinvent.com/ALTERNATIVE/time-machine.htm.
the physicist Amos Ori from the Israel Institute of Technology
in Haifa, claims to have found the first realistic model
of a time machine which can transport us into the past.
model consists of a vacuum which is shaped like a doughnut - or
torus - and which is surrounded by a sphere of normal matter. Nearby
objects of immense mass, like black holes, cause time to warp sufficiently
to form closed loops within the torus. Theoretically, any point
in time between the creation of the machine and the present should
be accessible to the time traveller.
Cramer, a physicist at the University of Washington. is
in the midst of experiments to prove that subatomic particles can
be made to travel back in time. At present, the University is asking
for public donations in order to keep this project going.
time travel into the past throws up a curious paradox: what if you
travel back in time and murder your grandfather, therefore preventing
you from being born in the first place. This 'Grandfather
Paradox' is just one of many fascinating aspects of this
problem, and attempts to overcome difficulties associated with the
concept of time travel make for interesting reading.
